UPDATE: The opening of Ride Hill Country Galleria has been delayed a week. Demos are now scheduled for April 23 and 24; the grand opening is scheduled for April 25.
A second location of RIDE Indoor Cycling is opening in Austin.
RIDE opened its first Austin location three years ago at 117 Lavaca Street. I stopped by at the time to check it out, and left feeling like I’d ridden a bicycle through a nightclub. Think of it as a spin class with flashing lights, loud music and an exuberant instructor.
The new studio, which offers high intensity indoor cycling classes set to music, will open at the Hill Country Galleria on April 18. Classes last 45 minutes, and students use Schwinn AC performance bikes.
To welcome the community, the gym will offer four free classes between April 15 and April 17. Registration for the free sessions opens at 5 p.m. April 10 at http://www.ride-indoorcycling.com.
RIDE also operates a Houston location, and will open another studio in The Woodlands in June.
