SOUTH TAMPA — CycleBar, an indoor cycling studio, will celebrate a soft opening with free classes from Thursday through May 29.

"Anyone can come in for as many times as they want for free," said Jordin Cooper, director of marketing operations.

The studio, which offers five different types of classes, including a meditation ride, started in Boston about 10 years ago. Now, owners Peter Wolfe and Dr. William McComb are bringing the luxury, high-tech brand to Tampa.

During the class, music plays from their in-house CycleBeats library and videos light up on flat screen TVs.

After the class, amenities such as deodorant, hair ties and bobby pins are provided.

Plus, riders are sent an email with their class statistics and a link that allows them to listen to the playlist for free on Spotify.

"It's a franchise model so customers pay by class," Cooper said. "It's not as much of a commitment."

On May 30, the studio will be officially opened for paid rides.

"There's a 10-10-10 challenge for the grand opening. If they ride 10 times in 21 days, they get 10 rides for free," Cooper said.

Go for a test ride at 209 S Dale Mabry Highway and visit, for more information.

CycleBar studios are also in development for Brandon, Carrollwood, New Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater.
