The Top End’s premier lifestyle destination, Darwin Waterfront, have added 9 KOMPAN Outdoor Bikes to their fitness repertoire. Located in the grass area outside the Convention Centre, residents and tourists can put their peddle to the metal as they take in the stunning waterfront views.
Darwin Waterfront General Manager, Sam Burke said he was looking forward to having a spin on the bikes and hoped to see many residents and tourists joining him over the coming months.
“The Waterfront is the only place in Australia where you can ride a spin bike with up to 8 others, under the shade of a tree, while taking in breathtaking harbour views,” Mr Burke said.
Free to use and available 24/7, the bikes combine the quality of an indoor gym bike with an outdoor durable design.Winner of a Good Design Award, the innovative bikes have a self-powered LCD touch-screen that allows you to change the resistance of the bike, track your speed, distance travelled, cadence and calories. The bikes are designed for all fitness levels and feature adjustable seats, plus space for your mobile phone, towel and water bottle. Bike users can connect to the free KOMPAN Cardio App to view instructional and motivational videos, track and save their rides and share to external platforms such as Strava, Apple Health and Google Fit.
After the announcement on Facebook, residents and tourists were absolutely estatic with the new fitness activity.
“Wow, we can exercise by the waterfont.” and “These are free-to-use might quit the gym.”
Urban Play worked alongside the Darwin Waterfront, KOMPAN and NT Shade to supply and install the outdoor bikes.
