FIRST RIDE

We require SPD compatible cycling shoes for your ride.
Don’t have your own? You’re good!
Shoes are on us for your first ride. We can talk options later.

THE STUDIO
EAST: 1008 Russell Street, Nashville, TN 37206, between 10th and 11th. 
WEST: …stay tuned.

BEFORE
Hydrate - Drink lots of water before, during, and after your ride. DEFIANCE FUEL water is available for purchase at our front desk in addition to our bottle filler/water fountain.

Fuel - we don't recommend riding on an empty stomach. Try a meal a few hours before your ride, or a light snack up to 30 minutes prior to class time.

Gear - we suggest wearing fitted workout pants or shorts and a lightweight, breathable top. Towels will be provided for all your sweat & shower needs.

ARRIVE EARLY
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early. We want to take care of you and make friends!
First-time riders (regardless of experience) must check in at least 5 minutes prior to class to insure your safety.

THE RIDE
Our Pack Leaders will help you set up your bike and answer any questions. Your instructor will provide a thorough explanation of how we ride: with hand and bike positions & basic choreography.

AFTER
We’re so excited to welcome you into our pack. In fact, we have a few first-time rider membership options that you’ll want to take advantage of. Be sure to chat with your instructor or Pack Leaders at the front desk to set up your next ride!

Oh, and drink water. That’s important.

Pack Leaders & Instructors are here to help you, always.
Feel free to ask questions, request help, or a make friends! It is our motto, after all. #RIDEBIKESMAKEFRIENDS
