Newbie to Spin Class

Recently discovered spinning and am LOVING it as a workout. Any long time spinners have any tips for success? How many times a week should a person spin? Does it really burn crazy amounts of calories? (130 pound woman) Any other info for the newbie? Thanks so much!

New bike commuter with questions!

This past weekend, I purchased my first road bike. My long term goal is to cycle to/from work every day. I’ve taken the bike on a few exploratory rides, been humbled by my general fitness level, and came away with a number of questions I hope you all can answer. (Many more details inside.
