Imagine a whole bunch of exercise bikes lined up inside a health club studio. Riders are on each one, hitting the hills, powering up the sprints and chasing the competition. The lights are turned down, pumped up music fills the air and an instructor sits atop a lead bike, calling out commands. That is what you will experience here at the J in our dedicated cycling (Lawrence B. Wernick) Studio. Come take the ride of your life!
