Frequently asked questions

Beginner RYDE: What do I need to know about my first RYDE?

RYDE is for all fitness levels and abilities. Our instructors push you to work hard during every RYDE, but you are always in control of the intensity of your workout. If you have never cycled before, we recommend grabbing a bike in the middle of the room, so you can see the instructor and follow the lead of the front row RYDErs.  This will help you make your way up to the front of the room as your skills progress and you learn the ropes.

How early should I arrive?

You should 15 before class so our staff can get you set up properly on your bike.

When does the RYDE schedule get released?

The booking goes live a week in advance of scheduled classes.  Classes fill up quickly and are on a first come first serve basis….so be sure to book your bike early!

What type of shoes do I need?

Proper shoes provide a safe cycling experience on the bike and also help keep knees, hips and ankles aligned. Furthermore, cycling shoes help target proper muscle groups and maximize workout results. Due to COVID-19, we are not providing cycling shoes at this time.  We will however provide recommendations on the best cycling shoes to purchase so you can get the best experience.  Our bikes are also eqipped with the toe cage, therefore clip in cycling shoes not required to Ryde with us.

Is there an age requirement?

In order to RYDE you must be at least 4’11” and at least 12 years old. If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian will be required to sign a waiver before your first RYDE.

Do you offer gift cards?

Yes. You may purchase a digital gift card on our website or request a physical gift card at our studio. You may use gift cards to purchase classes or apparel.

Cancellation, late arrival, no show policy:

In order to cancel your class and receive a credit to your account, you must cancel  your class 12 hours prior to your scheduled class.  This allows the studio enough time to fill the spot in class or pull someone off the waitlist.  If the rider does not cancel the class within this timeframe their class will be lost. If a rider does not show up for a reserved class, the class will be lost. 

 

What should I bring to classs?

We recommend that you bring plenty of water and a towel!

Group/Private Rydes:

Yes. A group RYDE is a great for birthdays, wedding parties, corporate team building events, and much more. Private RYDEs are encouraged for one-on-one instruction to maximize your workout. Contact us to schedule a Private RYDE

How many calories will I burn?

Calories burned depends on body weight and the intensity of effort during your RYDE.  In a typical 45-minute class, you will burn an average of 300 to 700 calories. You will receive a summary of your workout (including estimated calorie count) via email after each class, provided you have accurately entered your age and weight in your online account. You can also keep track of your progress by logging into your online account and viewing your profile.

I noticed the bikes have consoles. How can I see my results?

Our RYDE system will privately track your performance during each RYDE. Login to your RYDE online account to see your results and track your progress.

This does not apply to our outdoor classes.

 

Is it safe to lift weights on a bike?
