Spin studio Ride Cycle Club is offering free rides this summer with instructors-in-training ahead of the official opening of their new North Vancouver location.
Ride Cycle Club will open their third studio in Canada this September in a restored heritage building at 133 West 1st Street in Lower Lonsdale.
The spin studio company was launched in 2014 by JJ Wilson (founder of Kit and Ace, and son of Lululemon founder Chip Wilson), Ashley Ander, and Moe Samieian Jr. (Moe’s Home Collection).
Ander says they are offering complimentary rides to acquaint neighbours with the new studio, and also to get their feedback.
“We want the community to have a chance to experience all that RIDE has to offers with zero commitment.These sessions are held by our new instructors-in-training, and we hope to get community feedback on how we’re doing.”
The North Vancouver training facility, called “UNDRGRND” with 30 bikes and 10 new instructors-in-training, each with a unique personality and taste in music. To register for a free community ride, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ride Cycle Club offers a 55-minute class (45 minutes of cycling with 8-10 minutes of weights) set to music in a candlelit room, and was influenced by the spin studios of New York and Los Angeles.
Ride currently has two studios, at 881 Hamilton Street in Vancouver and 98 Ossington Avenue in Toronto.
