Breakaway Cycling Studio brings the nuance and challenge of road riding indoors with the RealRyder ABF8 spinning bike. Departing from typical spinning bikes, the RealRyder boasts an articulating frame that allows for side-to-side motion and requires the rider’s constant attention in order to balance the bike’s frame. Bikers steer, turn, and recorrect their body the same way they would on the road when encountering a wind shift, banking a turn, or leaning down to read a Dead End warning etched in sidewalk chalk. Passionate instructors lead indoor sessions, which are fueled by upbeat music, and a simple reservation system makes sure bikes are available when you need them.
