so many bikes! explained.

If you've been in the studio the past month or so, you may have noticed we got 14 new bikes for Valentine's Day! We've gotten some criticism for this change, but most of our riders have reported back with support and positivity. We are over the moon to have picked up such momentum that we were able to add bikes! However,  we understand the frustration of feeling perhaps more "packed in" than our ride north end- ers are accustomed to. So I wanted to address it for y'all. Small biz should be based upon a 2-way street of communication, after all. 

Yes, there is much less "blank space" in the studio, but blank space is not what studios are for! As a die-hard fitness fan and rider myself, I strive to create an environment that I would love to ride in.  I still have plenty of personal bike space when I take the other chicks' classes! 

We want to bring the heat, and create symbiotic energy. It's contagious! Here is what the addition of bikes means to you, our valued riders and friends:

1. fewer waitlists/ better chances of getting into busy classes

2. the ability for us to add more community rides to the schedule, making rides more accessible to everyone

3. lower prices for year-long, 3 month, and single month memberships, as well as flash sales (check out our new pricing options here).

4. the ability to grow our community to a wider audience

5.  the sultry ride room feels so much more luscious now. the feeling of being surrounded by a room replete with like minded and hard working individuals is unlike anything else. we feed off of eachothers' vibes!

 

As an independently owned studio in a climate full of big biz, we always have and will continue to strive to bring you guys the best service possible. Thank you for your support; you keep us thriving! 

Thanks for reading <3 m

Fuck Yes or No by Mark Manson

This notion can be applied to any realm of life, although this article speaks on relationships specifically. With relationships, the mindset should universally apply : If its not a FUCK YES, its a FUCK NO! Once you learn that, you will be much more selective in your endeavors and waste much less time (trust me). 

 

 

 

welcome to the ride north end blog!

After intending to create a blog for quite a while (but mulling over topics, angles and post frequency, etc)  here it is!

This morning between classes at ride, I was talking with a rider about skincare products after overhearing that she had had a reactionary run-in with a facial peel from Sephora, leaving her skin red and irritated. As luck would have it, I had tried a new facial peel the night before and was immensely happy with my product choice and the result, I gave the rider the product info with my endorsement.  

Around that time i realized that a blog doesn't have to be an entirely cohesive sequence of thematic and strategic posts. One of our monthly posts will be on "Awesome Sh*t"- i.e., products and services that we are loving that we would like to share with the ride community. 

It's one thing to think about doing something, and another to just bite the bullet and ACT. Last week one of my favorite podcasts , The Industrial Strength Show , launched an episode called "Think Less and DO More!"

Often there is so much time spent on reading, plotting, researching, and comparing that we can overlook the actual performance of the task itself. As I researched fitness and lifestyle blogs trying to analyze their strengths, weaknesses and successes, my mind began to clout and a sense of overwhelm took hold of me. Decision fatigue is the enemy of the go-getter.  

 JUST DO THE GODDAMN THING!
