Start with an eye exam by an Eye MD. If its normal then it's just the dilation of blood vessesl (vasodilation) that goes along with exercise.

After my one hour spinning class, my eyes are very bloodshot.  Could it be high blood pressure?  My eye exam last month was normal.  Should I be worried?

HBP would not be a likely cause. It's easy enough to have BP checked. When we exercise adrenaline (epinephrine) is dumped into the body's system. It is a vasodilator makes blood vessels dilate.
