Local Gem: Ride
Ride is the North End's indoor cycling spot and one of our go-to's for getting our sweat on. As you know, we love workout classes and Ride is most definitely #JUGsApproved for getting fit.
Why We Love It
First, Ride is SUPER convenient for us and anyone else in the North End (it's located at the end of Hanover). We can't tell you how long we've been waiting for a spinning studio to come to this side of town!
Second, Ride's vibe is the perfect blend of modern and calm mixed with badass. The standard brick outside of the building does not do the indoor studio justice. Inside, the studio walls are lined with reclaimed wood, giving it a "spa look" when the lights are on...but when the lights go off, the black lights come on! There is just enough light to see your bike and the instructor, allowing yourself to mentally get in the game.
The music and instructors are top notch. Beats were bumping so loud I couldn't help but wonder if you could hear the class out on Hanover Street.
And, the most delicious perk of all, ETC. Juicery is located right in Ride and offers amazing fresh-pressed juices for you!

When to go:
Ride offers classes all day, but we went at 6:30 a.m. That gave us plenty of time to head back to our apartments and shower before work.
