Whether you're a die-hard in the gym or an after-work spin class hack. If you've ever felt confused about your identity, not enough or attempted to find your soul through fitness to no avail! Come ride with Bi-Cycle, and find it! Enter the shiny boutique spin studio and be taken on a ride by the chiselled and imperfect instructor, whose damaged and motivated soul will, hopefully, guide you, hopefully, back to yours. A spin on self-worth, sexuality and spin class. 'I actually feel more alive after watching that!' (

Lots of fun but also really touching. Bit weird (in a good way), exactly the kind of thing you come to the fringe to see.

Funny and thoughtful. Such an energetic performance. Absolutely Loved it, as did the rest of the audience from what I could see. Go.

Energetic from the go! Loved this show as it delves in to the deeper side of your identity. Moving, funny and deeply touching. The spin instructor gets the whole class working hard. Emotional storytelling.

From the high speed spinning, then to a slow and poignant conversations, facing the issues.

Highly recommend this intimate show you will leave feeling fitter!

Come and find out who you are!!

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 121 days ago

Some spin classes charge a premium by promising riders a workout that not only burns calories but also improves their lives through inspiring messages from well-compensated instructors. Bi-Cycle authentically recreates the cult-like energy of this brand of spin class, whilst slowly and purposely building up the more important narrative surrounding...

Culture Fix (4/5 stars) 124 days ago

Sam Anderson’s Bi-Cycle sees a Sydney spin-class instructor cathartically explore his relationship with his sexuality. This intelligent one-man show explores the struggle for self-acceptance with a delicate blend of humour and heartfelt dramatics from Anderson.

Bi-Cycle is an intelligently crafted exploration of the desire for self-acceptance and overturning the constructs and relationships that prevent us from achieving this. Anderson’s spirited performance helps this cathartic piece shine in a consistently heartfelt and amusing manner.
