These frequently asked questions will ensure your first RYDE indoor cycling class is enjoyable and stress free. We can’t wait to meet you.
WHY DO I NEED TO CREATE AN ACCOUNT?
When you create an account online, it allows you to purchase classes and reserve your bike ahead of time. Additionally, creating an account gives you access to our mobile app where you can view lots of additional features.
DOES RYDE HAVE AN APP?
Yes! You can download the RYDE iOS application from the App Store HERE and easily manage your account, sign up for classes, track your progress, and much more.
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL PRICE FOR MY FIRST RYDE?
Absolutely. We offer a first time RYDE for $20 or experience an Infinite Week (unlimited RYDEs for a week!) of indoor cycling for only $40. The Infinite Week is the perfect way to get to know our team, explore different instructors, and try out various class times to see what best fits your schedule.
WHERE SHOULD I SIT?
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 fundamentals.
HOW EARLY SHOULD I ARRIVE?
We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. Our staff will happily help you sign in, get acquainted with the studio, and get set up on your bike.
WHERE DO I PARK AT RIVER OAKS?
There is plenty of parking in the River Oaks Shopping Center, including several spots in front of and on either side of the studio. If you have trouble finding a spot in a lot, try the four-story parking garage located across West Gray behind Talbots and Barnes & Noble.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
It’s best to wear a tee or tank with tight-fitting pants or shorts. Fitness gear made of moisture wicking or performance material will help you stay dry. Whatever you choose, just make sure you are comfortable.
ARE CYCLING SHOES REQUIRED?
Yes. Proper shoes provide a safe cycling experience on the bike, and also help keep knees, hips and ankles aligned. Cycling shoes also help target proper muscle groups and maximize workout results. If you have your own shoes, our pedals support SPD and LOOK Delta cleats but are not compatible with LOOK Keo. Our cycling shoes are available to rent at the studio for $3.50. We waive this fee for your first visit!
DO YOU HAVE WATER, TOWELS, AND LOCKERS?
We sell Essentia Water at the studio for $3.50, and we also have a station to refill your own bottle with cold, filtered water. We offer personal, coded lockers so your personal items are secure during class. RYDE’s full towel service includes ice-cold eucalyptus towels, hand towels and full-size towels.
DO YOU HAVE SHOWERS?
Yes! Our men’s and women’s locker rooms have fully-stocked showers, changing areas and amenities like blow dryers, hair products, collar stays and more!
