Though placing a playing card in the spoke of a bike may create a pleasing sound, it usually results in disqualification from the poker portion of the Tour de France. Play it safe in the great indoors with today's Groupon: for $15, you get three walk-in Ryde classes at Real Ryder Revolution (a $48 value).
Classes run seven days a week. Check out the schedule here.
Perched at the stern of a fleet of 30 RealRyder bikes, which simulate the challenge of cycling in the great outdoors, Real Ryder Revolution's motivational instructors lead students through pulse-spiking workouts, earning a feature on My Fox Detroit. Unlike traditional stationary bikes, R3's indoor bikes lean into turns like their outdoor counterparts, granting abdominal muscles an unexpected challenge. Motivational music spurs students toward their fitness goals like moths to a sweater-scented flame during the 45- to 60-minute classes. The stay-put cycling stokes cardio furnaces, burning calories while improving balance. Students should bring a towel and water bottle, purchase them at the studio, or sneak them out of a terrycloth and beverage factory in the dead of night.
Real Ryder Revolution
Real Ryder Revolution pedals circles around monotonous workout routines and spin programs with a fleet of 30 RealRyder bicycles stationed at each of its studios. The RealRyder design allows exercise bikes to tilt and bank laterally, adding another dimension to stationary-cycle workouts and engaging the entire physique. Pulsating music energizes visitors as they power through 45- to 60-minute Rydes at their own pace, following instructors’ cues that challenge legs, cores, and comprehension of Simon Says rules. Real Ryder Revolution’s staff emphasizes that anyone can attend the cycling sessions and adjust the intensity of their rides based on their own fitness level. Depending on the location, Real Ryder Revolution also offers group fitness classes on TRX suspension training, boot-camp drills, and boxing techniques.
