In case you needed a little more motivation to get your butt to that midweek spin class, here’s something that’ll sweeten the pot. Beginning tonight, the Wall Cycling Studio in Manayunk is hosting a weekly Healthy Hour at Winnie’s Le Bus after its Wednesday night classes. Getting a great workout and then indulging in some guilt-free drinks? Sounds like solid Hump Day plans to me.
Short of, you know, actually pedaling in the Tour de France, this is a pretty epic way to celebrate the end of the race: with a 75-minute Tour de France-themed ride on Sunday at 9 a.m. at Body Cycle Studio.
Your Thirsty Thursdays are about to take on a whole new meaning. The Wall Cycling Studio in Manayunk is debuting a new class tomorrow that features both indoor and outdoor workouts and a post-workout happy hour to boot.
There isn’t much to see yet at the soon-to-open Ciclo, a new Spinning studio coming to 2024 Frankford Avenue in Fishtown. But owner Mina Carroll assures me the bikes are on their way, and they’ll be ready to ride by her grand opening on March 8th.
“This weather has been killing me and pushing everything back,” she says. “But I’m really, really excited.”
Carroll, a CPA by day, has been spinning for a decade, but became certified a few years back. Born, raised and still living in Port Richmond, she says she was sick of having to trek to Center City to get her indoor-cycling fix, so she decided to open a studio closer to home. Ciclo is located at the upper end of Fishtown, near Kensington, on Frankford at Susquehanna Avenue.
