    Most common accidents in spin classes


    Vigorous and fast paced, spin bike exercise classes are a popular way of getting an effective workout. Care is, however, advised, as spin classes can be the scene of potentially serious spin bike injuries.

    Common accidents in spin classes

    The most common injuries in spin classes are caused by poor body positioning, overuse and incorrect set-up of handles or seat heights. These injuries may include:

    • Strains and sprains to wrists, backs and ankles
    • Pulled back muscles and/or hip pain
    • Knee ligament or tendon injuries

    Defective or damaged, poorly maintained spin bikes may also lead to accidents in spin bike classes. Here, injuries may consist of:

    • Injuries to the ankles or feet by breaking pedals
    • Injuries by falling off loose or damaged seats
    • Bruises, cuts, grazes or lacerations by accidental contact with moving parts

    Other injuries at spin class may be caused by:

    • Slipping on spills or otherwise wet flooring
    • Tripping over equipment, loose, damaged or cluttered flooring
    • Falling down stairs due to clutter or inadequate lighting

    Operators of spin classes have a legal duty of care to minimise the risk of personal injuries by:

    • Maintaining spin bikes in good, safe working order
    • Preventing slip, trip and fall injuries by keeping passages, stairs, etc. dry, clean, clear of clutter and well lit
    • Providing participants with adequate training/instruction in the safe use of bikes

    This includes assisting participants incorrectly setting up the height of seats and handles and showing them the correct way to position their body while cycling.

    Claiming for compensation

    If you sustained an accidental injury in a spin class, you could be entitled to make a spin bike injury claim if your injury was caused by:

    • A poorly maintained, damaged or defective bike
    • Lack of proper training/instruction
    • Clutter, wet or damaged flooring
    • Inadequate lighting in passages or stairwells

    To make a successful spin bike accident claim, you must action your claim within three years from the date your injury occurred.
