WHAT ARE THE CANCELLATION, LATE ARRIVAL, AND NO SHOW POLICIES?
In order to cancel a RYDE and avoid losing a credit, you must unreserve your class at least 8-hours prior to your scheduled class. You may cancel online or by calling the studio directly.

We will hold reservations for up to 10 minutes after the start of class. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, you will not be permitted to enter the studio.
WHAT IS THE WAITLIST POLICY?
If a class is full, feel free to add yourself to the waitlist. If any spots open up, clients are enrolled from the waitlist on a first come, first served basis. You will be notified if you are enrolled via email. The same cancellation, late arrival, and no show policies apply. If you need to remove yourself from the waitlist, please do so 8-hours prior to the scheduled class in order to avoid losing a credit. Credits will be returned to your account if you do not make it off the waitlist for a particular RYDE.
I PURCHASED A RYDE CLASS PACKAGE. WHEN DOES IT EXPIRE?
We keep it simple. All packages expire one (1) year from the date of purchase.
WHAT IF I AM A RYDE BEGINNER?
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 become more familiar with the workout.
ARE CYCLING SHOES REQUIRED?
Yes. 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. Our bikes are compatible with LOOK Delta and SPD cleats, but are NOT compatible with LOOK KEO. Feel free to bring your own shoes or rent a pair of our cycling shoes for $3.50. Cycling shoes are provided free of charge for your first RYDE.
