Schedule an optional 30-minute orientation at the studio. Email us at info@upbeatcycling.com for tour times.

If you haven't tried Upbeat Cycling before, ask us about taking a complimentary 1st ride. We think you'll like it!

2. We've got you covered

Lockers: We have self-setting combo locks so no need to bring your own lock

Shoes: We're sorry, but no street shoes are permitted in the ride theatre. We rent Look Delta cleated cycling shoes ($1) to make your ride safe, comfortable and highly effective, or you may bring your own (SPD or Delta Look cleats). When you're ready, we can assist you with purchasing your own cycling shoes.

Changing Rooms: We have three private changing rooms for you convenience. The studio has no showers.

Filtered Water: Bring your own or help yourself to our high quality Vero filtered water: available in room temp, chilled still or sparkling!

Water Bottles: Bring your own or buy a re-usable water bottle (help us preserve the environment)

Towels: We provide towels for use during class.

3.Safety First...

Safety First ...

  • Please come early and our trained staff will help you get set up properly and record your setting for future rides.
  • Our bikes have four adjustment points - 1) seat height, 2) seat fore/aft, 3) handlebar height and 4) handlebar fore/aft. 
  • A staff member will ensure your shoes fit properly and show you how to clip in/out safely.
  • Always follow the pre-class safety precautions of your instructors and only do what you are comfortable doing. We never exert any pressure to do anything you're not comfortable doing. We encourage you to observe the instructor and others in class before attempting unfamiliar elements.
  • Never do anything that causes pain. Always let us know if something doesn't feel right and we'll help you make adjustments.
  • Please do not place belongings on the ride theatre floor to avoid trip hazards; use our secure lockers for belongings.
