HYDRATE Please remember to drink lots of water before, during, and after you ride. It is very important to stay hydrated. You can bring your own bottle and fill it at our filtered water station or purchase cold bottled water from the front desk.
EAT Please don't attempt to ride on an empty stomach. Have a full meal a few hours before class or a light snack up to half-an-hour before.
WHAT TO WEAR We suggest wearing form fitting pants or shorts and a light and breathable top. No need to bring a towel, we supply them.
ARRIVE EARLY Please make sure you arrive at least 15 minutes before class. The worst is feeling rushed before class. The team will help set you up on your bike and get you ready to go before you ride. Please note that if you do not arrive a minimum of 5 minutes before class we cannot guarantee that you will be allowed entry into class.
CHECK IN If you have booked online (recommended) look for the sign-in sheet at the front desk. We ask that you initial upon arrival. Your bike will be up for grabs if you have not signed in 5 minutes prior to the ride starting. If you are not signed-in, we'll assume you're not here. We encourage all first time riders to choose bikes toward the back of the class so that they can get into the RIDE and follow along with the rhythm of the pack. Bikes may be switched to keep integrity of the pack.
WAIVER All first-time riders are required to fill out a waiver. The front desk will get you set up with a form when you first check-in at the studio. All riders 16 years and under are required to have a parent or guardian's signature in person.
SHOES Shoes are included in the price of the class. We use LOOK Delta cleats but our pedals are also SPD compatible. If you have your own shoes you’re more than welcome to bring them in.
WATER We have a filtered water station for you to fill up before and after class. Cold bottled water is also available for purchase at the front desk.
LOCKERS & CHANGE ROOMS Our studio has men's and women's change rooms complete with showers, fresh towels and a few daily essentials. We've also got lockers free of charge. We encourage you to lock-up your valuables, as RIDE is not responsible for lost or stolen property.
3 PART SET UP The instructor or front desk will help you with your bike set-up. There are three key parts to proper set up on the bike.
1. Seat Height
2. Handle Bar Height
3. Seat Fore/Aft position
Before your RIDE check in with your body and bike. Tighten all the handles on the bike and make sure your shoes are clipped in. Our instructors are here to push and motivate you! But please remember to listen to your body and work at a level that is most comfortable to you. The RIDE team is always around to answer any questions you may have.
