THE TRIBE | Tomas Hucal, Toronto

ride cycle club

Get to know Tomas – a Toronto Rider famous for never sitting down and bringing serious heat to Ossington 6AMs. Tomas has been coming to RIDE since our early beginnings, and you can always count on him for showing up rain, snow or shine with a big smile, insane energy and wicked sense of humour.

What do you do for your 9-5?

I work for Want Apothecary.

If your bestie were to describe you in three words, what would they be?

Really Fucking Hyper.

How long have you been coming to RIDE?

I first came to RIDE when you guys had the UNDGRND classes in that weird dark basement.

What motivates you to get your ass to class?

I’m really into having a routine and when I miss the 6AM spin it throws my whole day off.

How has RIDE impacted your life?

I’ve become a senior citizen…dinners at 5PM and I’m usually in bed by 9PM.

Outside of your 9-5 – tell us about all the badass things you’re up too.

I watch a lot of Real Housewives. I also really love running but I’ve been cheating on her with RIDE as my main source of cardio.

In your opinion, what makes RIDE’s community so unique?

The people, the music, and the Instructors <3 I’ve been to a lot of other studios in the city and nothing compares to the energy at RIDE.

Favourite Instructor and why?

Alex because she’s a psychopath and pushes me way past my comfort zone…she has me standing for her entire class now.

Best RIDE memory?

Riding on the podium with Alex was pretty cool/terrifying.

What other workouts do you do outside of RIDE?

I just started doing Barry’s Bootcamp and I love it! As I mentioned I also love running and I’m in the process of picking the next marathon I want to start training for.

Song you’ve got on repeat?

Tommy Genesis – 100 bad

If you could brunch with any male/lady boss (past or present), who would it be?

My mom’s a boss and having lunch with her is always special! Britney Spears is a very close second.

If you were to give a s/o to a local entrepreneur, who would it be?

My friend Edi owns two really amazing jewelry lines CUCHARA and 12TWELVE. She’s the hardest working person I know and makes the most amazing stuff!

Describe your ideal Saturday in the city.

Do the 8:30AM RIDE class, get a trenti iced coffee from Starbucks, go for brunch, see a romcom, and end the day with some dinner/drinks, and maybe more drinks depending if I’m signed up for 8:30AM class on Sunday.

Who motivates you?

My parents…they’re pretty great!

Fave quote or words to live by?

If Britney survived 2007 you can make it through today.

Last book you read was…

The Andy Cohen Diaries ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What does RIDE mean to you?

RIDE means I can eat two breakfasts <3
