When visitors open the door to Live Love Flow + Flow Cycle Seattle, they're greeted by the sounds of whirring wheels and pumping pedals that wouldn't be out of place on the French countryside's winding road courses. The exercisers here run through the same muscle-defining, heart-pumping motions that power the most famous European races from the comfort of their indoor cycling studio at the heart of the U District. There, Flow Cycle classes burn calories and stabilize keen and hip joints, helping cyclists stay as flexible as Gumby after his nightly bubble bath. Each session is led by one of the studio's stable of instructors, which includes current and former road racers in its ranks.

Founder Heather Scearce started practicing Pilates in 1997 after she suffered a severe back injury in a car accident.

The classes are small and promise more elbow room for friends, families and sock-puppet troupes to workout in tandem.

In 1992, restaurant owner Carlos Kainz and chef Julie Guerrero first joined forces to open a tiny West Seattle bakery and café, a spot that quickly gained traction and outgrow its modest trappings. The duo packed up the winning operation and moved on to a larger space and a larger vision, renaming their venture Dulces Bistro & Wine and crafting an ambitious menu focusing entirely on Latin-fusion cuisine for dinner. Although Guerrero traces her family heritage back to Mexico, many of her dishes, including paella valenciana and boeuf bourguignon, show strong European influences. Unadulterated Latin staples pepper the menu, such as the green chicken enchiladas that serve as a staple in Mexico City and at Sam I Am’s Cinco de Mayo parties.

Occasional climbers can buy a day pass for use of the entire sprawling facility, while avid climbers have a choice of membership levels.
