I love a Kendall Toole ride whenever I want a difficult and challenging ride. This hip-hop ride is the best because it lasts only 30 minutes, which is enough for me in a Kendall call. 

The class is also perfect for a tough class that blends hip-hop music. The music in itself is enough to push you harder, with the beats sinking deep into your burning muscles. More amazingly, the music is a combination of different Hip Hop tracks, from the old school, new school, East Coast to West Coast.

Are 30-Minute Rides Daily Enough for Exercise?

Yes, thirty minutes of rides on a daily basis are effective in providing cardio exercises as well as lower body muscle strength. However, to reap the most cycling benefits, you will need to combine class types, such as Power Zone, bike Bootcamp, HIIT and Hills, Tabata, and others.
