I couldn’t leave NYC without visiting SoulCycle at least once, so I crammed in a ride before my 7-hour flight home. Frankly, dancing on a bike isn’t my idea of a hardcore workout, but it was a nice way to finish off my trip to NYC. The original “party on a bike” was to be expected as it has been imitated by many studios around the world, but it’s only proof that it works.
The Brooklyn Heights studio was smaller than the more centrally located studios, but there were plenty of showers to go around.
