New to L2C? Here's what you need to know about cycling classes

​​For safety reasons, riders must be at least 5' tall and weigh at least 90 pounds.

Children under 16 must have a parent sign a waiver on their behalf.

Children under 14 must have a parent with them during class.


​​When in doubt, be early.  

Please be in the studio 15 minutes before the start of class. This will give the Instructor a chance to assist you with bike set up, show you how you how to adjust the all-important resistance, use the brake and more.

 

What to wear
Tight or fitted longish shorts or pants that prevent bunching and a lightweight shirt.

 

Shoes
Our bikes take SPD clips. If you don’t have cycling shoes, just wear sneakers with heavy-ish soles. (With love and respect to Converse®, please leave your Chuck Taylors at home.)

 

What you need
Start hydrating at least two hour before the ride and have a small snack. A piece of fruit with your favorite protein or a yogurt are good choices.


Bring water. Even those who don’t typically drink water during cardiovascular exercise often want it for indoor cycling. For your convenience, we sell it at the studio. You’re also welcome to fill up your own water bottle at the studio.

 

If you have very sensitive ears, you may want to bring earplugs, as classes at Level 2 Cycling are music-driven. Forgot them? Just ask the front desk for a pair.

 

We supply small towels, great music, energetic instructors and all the encouragement you can handle.


Other items
We don’t have many rules, but we do have a few. Embracing these suavities will ensure that everyone has a great ride.

 

  • Classes start on time, and late entry is not allowed for safety reasons. Please be in room 4 minutes prior to start time or your bike will be forfeited to any wait-listed riders.
  • Treat everyone (fellow L2C riders and staff) kindly. Even if you fake it, it’s good practice for more authentic days.
  • Pay attention to the "how to" directions given in the beginning of class. There will be a quiz.
  • There is a synergy that comes when the collective rides as one. If you're certain you're going to have your own ride your own way—and it happens; we truly understand— please do it towards the back of the room.
  • Please refrain from talking once class has begun, as it is a distraction to other riders.
  • No cell phone usage during class. Not for a text message. Not even for Shazam.
  • People who workout daily must have clean clothes daily. [Insert subtext here.]
  • Please refrain from wearing strong colognes or perfumes. Not everyone likes patchoulie.
  •  L2C is a judgement-free zone. 
  • Please work at your own pace. It’s not a competition. (In fact, we carry each other through the hard parts.)
  • Activities that are fun tend to be repeated, so let go of your goals and enjoy the process. Trust us on this one.


L2C reserves the right to cancel any class with low enrollment.
