Enjoy 45 minutes of high-energy cycling on the rooftop of the Dilworth Crossing building (yes, outdoors) thanks to this new cycle studio. Each student receives a pair of headphones so that the instructor’s voice and music stay contained to the class. Classes are currently available via SweatNET, but the studio will launch their own app in July.
