Where to cycle like a pro — both indoors and out — around Dallas-Fort Worth
Though the Peloton craze has (somewhat) died down, cycling is still high on most people's fitness lists.
Whether you prefer to sweat indoors alone or with a roomful of strangers, or outdoors with nature as your riding buddy, hopping on a bicycle is one of the most versatile ways to work out.
We get it: It's still really hot. Pedal in that air conditioning for as long as you want by joining one of the classes at Terlingo Cycle, just east of the Dallas North Tollway and north of I-35. The 45-minute experience is rhythm-based and incorporates weights and core exercises, with instructors who are trained to be inspirational and encouraging about both your body and mind.
Drop into SoulCycle at either its Preston Hollow or Uptown studios for a party on a bike. With high-intensity interval cardio and focused toning, the flow is designed to raise your heart and metabolic rates.
There's a Cycle Bar class for every vibe, with each instructor bringing their own playlists and themed rides across Dallas, Fort Worth, Southlake, and Denton. Here, you'll find high-performance custom bikes, amphitheater seating, enhanced lighting, concert-quality sound, and two massive high-def flatscreen TVs. Every bike comes with built-in CycleStats technology, so you can track calories burned, RPMs, watts, and class rank.
Plano's Neon Cycle + Strength offers more than just bikes, with HIIT, sculpt mat pilates, and yoga, but perhaps the best amenity is the childcare that's available while you're riding to the beat. A smoothie bar to refuel after is just an added bonus.
Co-founded by Sabrina Roy and Marisa Wayne — daughter of film icon John Wayne — Coast Cycle touts the benefits of exercise as therapy. "Turn doubt into drive" is one of its missions, and inclusivity is a high priority for this studio on Henderson Avenue.
ZYN22's motivational classes strike the perfect balance of speed, resistance, and choreography to keep you engaged and challenged. The Fort Worth studio is a ClassPass favorite, and devotees call themselves the trYbe.
Up your cycling game by heading to one of the 10 DFW locations of Spenga, where each class is divided into 20 minutes of spin, 20 minutes of strength training, and 20 minutes of yoga. The classrooms each have space dedicated specifically to each element of the workout, plus invigorating aromatherapy and energizing DJ-inspired beats.
