Riding to the Beat

Rhythm Ripped™ is Here!

Thirteen months ago we opened our studio committed to beat riding goodness. Our Rhythm Ride is the foundation for delivering you exceptional cardio and core strength and a rock star experience. Now we are ready to expand into upper body strength with a class called Rhythm Ripped. This new class once again comes proven out of Laguna Beach and combines the cardio you know and love from a traditional Rhythm Ride class with an upper body workout using hand weights. We focus on biceps, triceps and deltoids. It’s all on the bike. It’s all still to the beat. It will challenge you. We go for the BURN.

Rhythm Ripped classes will begin February 8th with 3 classes on the schedule.  Bring on the strong!

Mondays @ 9:40AM with Toni starting Feb. 8
Wednesdays @ 6:45PM with Amanda starting Feb. 10
Thursdays @ 9:40AM with Erin starting Feb. 11

Friend Week Oct. 12-16

Next week we are celebrating friends!  Within Cycle Town, our instructors LOVE to ride together. We do it as much as we can.  It’s extra fun and adds to our drive.  We encourage you to work out with a friend too.

  • Better accountability – It’s one thing to cancel on yourself, it’s another to cancel on a friend.  Schedule time to workout together!
  • More motivation – If you’re even thinking about giving up just look over at your partner in crime!
  • More fun – Working out, rocking out… everything is just more fun with friends!
  • Get your social fix – It’s the healthiest date you’ll ever have. Double down and schedule a juice or coffee date for afterwards.

October 12th thru 16th is friend week at Cycle Town. Bring a friend for FREE (new riders only). Boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, teen or your good ‘ol BFF.  Sign up yourself and tell us who you’re bringing (email, call, or chat with us at the studio) and their class is free.  Feel good fitness is one of the best gifts friends can give each other.  And don’t forget about our referral program.  You get a free ride if your new rider friends buy the intro 3-ride package.

Your Love Affair With GEAR

Ohhhhhhhhhhh riders, you are doing such an amazing job on the bike. You ride to the beat like rock stars and go all in when we throw challenges at you. It’s so inspiring. Because of you, our ride has evolved much quicker than we ever expected, with a lot more to come. Now we’re going to have a conversation about gear.

Gear is a glorious thing and it’s time for you to begin your love affair with it. What? A red knob? Yes! You need to embrace that knob like you do a guilty pleasure. We have been adding a lot more gear to our rides.  Here are 4 reasons why.  Get on board with them and commit to paying close attention to your gear to take your ride and fitness to the next level. You will be glad you did.
• Gear supports you so you can catch that beat. As you know, nothing is better than riding to the beat.
• Gear requires that you exert more energy to stay on beat thus making your workout exponentially more effective and sweaty. (Don’t forget we take pride in sweat.)
• Gear challenges you to dig deep physically and mentally. To stay on beat with heavier pedal strokes, it takes a lot of focus. 50 minutes focused on you… heaven.
• Gear slows you down and enables you to tighten your core and really work your muscles through exaggerated pedal strokes and the Rhythm Ride movements for a full body workout.

Gear is an essential component of interval training or, as we like to call it, cardio fun on a bike. We always guide you with where your gear should be during each song via a perceived exertion scale. Follow our lead and begin that love affair with gear today.  It will make you feel great.

Our First Week

What a week it’s been!  We opened our doors and the enthusiasm for our ride has been fantastic.  We are having so much fun meeting all of you, showing you our new space, and sharing our ride.

The part of our launch that has us most excited is how well you are grabbing that beat.  We love to look around and see the rhythm carry the room.  Each class we start out with a steady beat to get you aligned with the rhythm.  Then we see you hearing it and riding it.  Your ride and fitness are going to a whole new level, pedal stroke after pedal stroke.

The second most beautiful sight is your sweat.  I don’t mean to be gross, but it’s our goal to give you a great workout.  The evidence speaks for itself.  We know our rhythm ride is challenging you physically and putting you in a great place mentally.

The final thing that makes us cheer are the smiles on your faces.  Endorphins are kicking in about 3 minutes after you get off the bike, catch your breath and chug some water.  The volume level of the chatter in the lobby is high and then big smiles start to turn up.

Lastly, a BIG call out to our awesome crew.  Amanda!Amy!Anne!Erin!Kelly!Meg!Suzanne!Toni!  #loveyouguys.  We are getting our mojo.  These ladies are so talented and so much fun.  We support and inspire each other and it shows.  They make me laugh so hard I’ve even cried.  Together with you, we are a community of riders out for self-betterment and physical well-being.

All of this is a beautiful sight.  I’ve been chatting with Shelley a lot this week, our master trainer in Laguna.  She laughs at my stories of how well everyone is riding and keeps saying “of course, the ride just makes sense.”  It sure does.  We did it, Cycle Town is open!!  Expanded schedule is now live.

Introducing our Rhythm Ride

Indoor cycling has evolved so much over the past five years. There’s been a movement toward choreographing the ride to the beat of the music. Riding to the beat creates a more effective, efficient and energetic experience. We are bringing heart, soul, and rhythm to Hingham Square.

I’m excited to introduce our Rhythm Ride, where we ride to the beat and match our pedal strokes and speed to the rhythm.  Rhythm Ride came to us from Laguna Beach, California. Our master trainer Shelley founded Rhythm Ride method six years ago and we can’t get enough of it. The ride is music centric, positive and empowering. It’s a great cardio workout and it emphasizes core strength. Your fitness goes to a new level while you have fun. We ride as a pack, encouraging a communal rather than competitive atmosphere.

Shelly Kristen

Last month I trained at Shelley’s studio in Laguna. Not a bad “business trip”.  I started drinking juice and smoothies.  Shelley is such a gem.

juice meeting Laguna

When she’s not spinning she’s surfing or launching her new business selling gorgeous designer beach umbrellas, Beach Brella. I brought the method home and began training our crew. Shelley and fellow master trainer Julia arrived in Hingham last weekend to run their training program. We are in rehearsals now– 9 days until we open!
