How long is each class and what can I expect?
Each class is 45 minutes long and includes a workout stretch at the end. Our instructors encourage you to ride to the beat of the music. The playlists include current hits, remixes, and some old favorites. Expect to engage several areas of your body during class including your legs, arms, and core. Our cycling room is open and airy with high ceilings and gracious space between bikes.

I walked by the studio, but you guys were closed!
We are usually open around our class times, which are offered in the mornings and evenings. View our weekly schedule here.

What shoes do I wear to class?
We are happy to currently offer FREE cycling shoe rentals, which are available at our front desk. If you have your own cycling shoes, our bikes support both SPD and Look Delta cleats. If you prefer to ride in sneakers, we can provide you with sneaker cages for your bike.

Arrival
We recommend arriving at 10-15 minutes prior to the start of class. Latecomers will not be permitted after 4 minutes into the start of the class time.

Is there bike assignment?
No, we do not assign bikes. You choose your bike when you arrive for class.

What if it's my first time taking a cycling class?
Everybody has a "first time" and we want yours to be special. If you're a first-time rider, please arrive at least 15 minutes early and will help you settled on the bike.

Are there different levels of classes? 

Each class is designed to be suitable for all levels. Beginners and advanced riders are welcome! 

What if I can’t follow everything in class? 
Do not feel pressured to follow everything in class. Ride at your physical comfort level and stay mindful of how your body is responding to the workout. 

Referral Program:
For every new rider you refer to our studio, you will receive one free class! Bonus: the class has a 90-day expiration date. It's easy! Just make sure your guest mentions your name to our front desk when he/she comes to take class and we will credit your account.

Cancellation Policy:
If you cannot attend your scheduled class, you must cancel at least 2 hours ahead of the class time. Cancellations made after the 4-hour window will result in losing your class. For riders on any Unlimited Package, a late cancellation will result in a $12.00 penalty charge. Unlimited Package no-shows will also incur the same $12.00 charge. Please be mindful of cancelling on time to avoid being charged for your missed class.

How old does my son/daughter need to be to take class?
Minors need to be at least 13 years old and 4’11 to take class. All riders under the age of 18 must have their parent or guardian sign a waiver in person authorizing them to take class. 

I’ve heard that cycling makes your legs bulky. Is this true?
Absolutely not! This is a common misconception about indoor cycling. Indoor cycling will tone, burn fat, and help you achieve exactly the opposite of bulk in your lower half.  

What do I need to bring to class? 
You will need water, fitted workout clothing that is sweat wicking (avoid cotton shirts, as they do not absorb moisture) and cycling shoes or athletic shoes that aren’t bulky. 

Do you provide towels?
Yes! A clean towel will be placed on your bike every time you take class. If you should need an additional towel, extras are always available. 

What type of bikes do you have? 
We use Schwinn AC Performance Plus with Carbon Blue. These bikes also include a digital monitor to track your RPM and calories burned. 

How many calories are burned in each class? 
One can expect to burn anywhere from 300-1200 calories during the 45-minute workout. However, calories burned will vary based on height, weight, gender, and fitness level of the rider. 

Do I need to sign up for class in advance?
Riders are always welcome to take a class without signing up in advance. Walk-ins are always welcome. However, without a reservation, we cannot guarantee that your preferred bike will be available. You can book your bike and classes for the week in studio, by phone, or through our website. 

How do I purchase classes?
