IT'S GONNA BE MAY

Well, it IS already May, but this tagline is by far the best saying out there for this month (TEAM NSYNC FOREVER)! 

We had a great month at RYDE4! New instructors, we added an Athletic RYDE, and we have a new ryder of the month! 

RYDER OF THE MONTH!
SARAH BALTER
FullSizeR

Sara moved to LA and started ryding with us here at RYDE4 6 months ago! She came across the studio online and when she saw the rooftop, she was sold :-) She has been taking class with Shay, Michael, and Taylor during the week, and Shay's RYDE60 class every Saturday morning at 9:00AM. We asked her a few questions about herself and her love for RYDE4. Check it out below!

What is your favorite thing about RYDE4?

I love that Ryde4 is fast paced and introspective. Despite the fact that it takes place in a group setting, with the lights off and the music blasting, the experience couldn't be more personal. It's always a challenge but for me it's also just about letting go of stress and pushing myself to my own limits.

What are you ryding for? 

I'm ryding PRIMARILY because I hate to run and "cardio is important", but also because its super mindful. It requires your full body and in order to make the most of it, you have to detach from the rest of your day, tune into your body, focus on your breathing and just let all the stress go. So it's sort of like yoga for people who can't sit still, maybe.

What is your favorite move on the bike?!

Shay's "around the world". Hands down.

Thank you for being a part of our team Sara, you're the best!

APRIL IS HERE!

NEWS:
Each month moving forward, we are going to feature a RYDER that we think deserves recognition! We absolutely love all of our RYDERS. The loyalty, energy, friendliness, and down-right badassery (this word needs to be in Webster's) of our RYDERS is unparalleled, and we are so thankful for the community that you have helped create! With all of that said...we would like to introduce our first...

RYDER OF THE MONTH!
BRITTANY JONES

Brittany has been RYDING with us way before the brand RYDE4 was created! She took Angelica's class over six years ago (SIX YEARS!), and she still clips in for Angelica's morning classes a few times a week with a great attitude and amazing workout ethic. We asked Brittany why she RYDES, and what keeps her coming back:

For years I was intimidated by the thought of spin class, it looked so serious and I thought there was no way I would be able to keep up. About six years ago after growing bored wandering the gym floor, I finally got the nerve to try class with Angelica... one class in and I was HOOKED! Spin class with her has become part of my life. It is my therapy session in the morning to work away any anxiety before I start my day, it is my dance party to rock out and get a smile on my face, it has helped shave over 15 pounds off of my body, and most importantly it is an amazing community of people who have fun and encourage one another! I don't know what I would do without her class!

THANK YOU BRITTANY, WE LOVE YOU!

We totally understand that things happen, so please try to respect your other ryders by opening up your bike as soon as possible! If you do have an emergency, and you're unable to reach out before the start of class, please send us an email at ryder@ryde4.com at your nearest convenience.

LATE RYDER POLICY: We are trying our best to respect the needs of all of our ryders. If you do not arrive 4 minutes before the start of class, we have permission to give your bike away to ryders already in class that prefer a different bike, or to ryders on the waitlist.

We are constantly looking for new partnerships, creating events, and finding ways to keep our ryders happy. We are open to any and all of your ideas! Send us an email at ryder@ryde4.com, or comment below!
