Three of Austin’s hottest cycling studios offer unique ways to pedal out.
Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean Austinites take a vacation from working out—and indoor cycling is a perfect way to pedal up a sweat without facing the season’s sweltering heat. Three distinct cycling studios offer standout features that keep riders coming back for more.
Love was founded by a group of successful friends, including Maria Groten and David Garza, who wanted to share their cycling passion. The studio focuses on inclusion, with classes designed for beginners as well as experts. Riders are rewarded with a refreshing eucalyptus towel for that post-workout cooldown. 507 Pressler St. No. 900, 512-761- 3398
With studios in the Second Street District as well as the Hill Country Galleria, Ride is all about the music, with killer acoustics and special classes like “Rihanna vs. The Weeknd.” Instructors know their riders by name and aim to make each 45-minute session both a workout and a social event. 117 Lavaca St., 512-322-5252; Hill Country Galleria, 512-284-9888
Launched by Maja Kermath in 2012, Kor180 pairs indoor cycling with high-octane Pilates interval training in workouts that make use of a machine called a KorFormer. In addition to its downtown location, Kor180 recently opened a studio near the Domain. 1161 W. Fifth St., No. 140, 512-243-7955; 11005 Burnet Rd., No. 106, 512-772- 2541
