I am a more advanced spinner, so it is hard to find dvd's that push me hard enough & keep me motivated. Boy, did this one do the trick. It is longer than most I have - it is 70 minutes if you do all the segments. Most of the other dvd's I have are only 30-40 minutes including warm-up & cool down. So it definitely pushes me to the limit more than the others. I also like the instructor. She is less canned and doesnt act so much like she is a robot reading a teleprompter. She has lots of energy & personality. I also like that the video occasionally simulates an actual outdoor ride. Like climbing a hill to catch a group of riders up ahead. Also a dog chasing you as a motivation to sprint. Anyway who cycles outdoors knows all too well the reality of dog chases. So I found this amusing. Great dvd - definitely worth getting!

Fun, inspiring instructor. Fun scenarios (don't remember if the dog chases you in this one or her other one- but it sure made me increase my pedal speed). Great workout; you can decrease the time you spend or go all out with this one.

Combine this with the Robert Sherman ones (he gets more into the physiology of the ride)- Mindy's is probably more fun. For the serious spinner, both instructors have lots to offer.

Mindy really keeps you motivated and I got a great workout. She's a bit silly, but not annoying. She keeps chatting and the time flys. The full workout is about 70 minutes. I like how you can easily adjust the ride to fit the time you have. Great DVD.

Verified Purchase
I am an amateur triathlete who performs cycling events in the middle of my age/gender division. I typically use Coach Troy's Spinervals workouts and bought Mindy's DVD seeking variety in the personality and approach of the cycling coach.

I cycle hard indoors Nov through Feb and find that Mindy's workout fits nicely with triathlon training DVDs about once every 10 days. I use it as an effort of 8 on a maximum of 10 (Coach Troy's levels). I get into the anaerobic zone about 5 or 6 times during this workout, usually for 1 or 2 minutes. The rest of the workout is mid to high aerobic, with low aerobic rest intervals.

Mindy creates scenarios to help motivate the various intensity levels. For example, she may ask you to pass and hold a lead against an elite cyclist. The scene cuts to a brief episode of passing a road biker, who cranks it up competitively.

I like that Mindy demonstrates good cycling stretches after the cool down. Other DVDs neglect stretching and I find my recovery and flexibility is much better if I follow her lead.

The music is lame. Coach Troy's Spinervals workouts usually include a menu option to cut out the prerecorded music track but preserve the coaching instructions. Mindy's production team somehow thought the reverse would be preferable, including an option to cut out the instructions but preserve the lame music. This workout could really blast if I was able to listen to some of my own collection of uptempo jams.

I am generally satisfied. The workout is a unique 60 min challenge..

I purchased (1) Cycle Reebok: Foundations and Interval Training with Robert Sherman, (2) Mindy Mylrea's Super Cycle: The Best Ride in Town and (3) Bike-O-Vision Cycling DVD #12 Oregon at the same time. I have been very happy with the first two, and plan on selling the Oregon DVD shortly.

Robert Sherman's DVD is very focused on building strength and skill while maintaining control. He does have the intense, almost cheesy persona that others wrote about, but I find that I really like that. It helps me stay in his game, like he's always trying to hang on to you mentally. Robert talks a lot about staying internally focused, and makes it all about you and your experience. It's meditative in a way - he asks you to close your eyes, envision your body, stuff like that. My maximum heart rate is around 180, and with his workouts, I generally find myself in the 155-165 range, reaching 175 during the last set. He gives regular opportunities to recover and stretch.

Mindy Mylrea takes a different approach. Instead of the internal focus, she is very external - you are trying to catch up with a friend, pass a professional cycler and then run from a big dog. She keeps my heart range in the 165-175, with an occasion 180+. She keeps you running for longer intervals, and gives less recovery overall. She is very upbeat and smiley. I find both Mindy and Robert offer a likeable, valuable workout. Neither has great music, but I don't find myself noticing that very much.

Finally, I don't care much for the Oregon DVD. The music is classic and instrumental, though you could mute that and listen to your own stuff. The ride is pretty, but there's no real sense of hill climbing or speed. You completely have to make it up yourself. Also, sometimes you are sort of going uphill and then you switch to a different part of the road with no clear transition. I would rather spend my time watching DVD's of TV series I like than watch this while cycling.

I've been spinning in a studio for 10 plus years but recently gave up gym membership and bought a spinning bike for home use. This is the first DVD I purchased as a means of increasing my workout intensity. Boy did it ever. I've been using it at least 2x/week for 6 weeks now and have found myself working much harder (per my heart rate monitor) than before I was using it and much more on par with spinning classes.

The DVD is well segmented to give you the opportunity to create your own workout every time: a 6 minute warm up, a hill section of 3 hills (6min, 7min, 8min with appropriate recoveries), intervals (about 6 minutes), flat (about 5 min w/ sprints) and a final hill. I've done the full session once and it is intense (60 min)! Even slicing and dicing for my own 40 minute workout leaves me feeling well exercised and 'good' tired.

Mindy is friendly and instructional - not overly cheerleaderish or too basic in her explanations. Visually, the dvd doesn't get too boring - it's largely Mindy in a park overlooking the California Coast, but there are some nice cut aways to help you visualize the hill scenarios she describes in that part of the video. In general she uses enough but not too many visualization techniques to help you get through some of the longer parts of the video.

There are a few things I wish were different. In terms of usability, some instruction/guidance on heart rates in conjuction w/ her 4 zone approach (she uses a four zone system based on how you're feeling/level of effort)would be nice. Would also like her to encourage more water breaks - I don't think she drinks water once during the video.

Overall, a new workout favorite - highly recommend. And while I wrote this from an advanced spinner perspective, my sense is that this is simple enough and motivating enough for newer riders as well.
