With summer fast approaching, it might be wise to take your cycling indoors.
Cue the grand opening of CycleBar Premium Indoor Cycling, “a new luxury boutique fitness franchise offering a high-energy workout in a lively, concert-like atmosphere," according to a news release. The workout venue is set to open on May 5 at 7001 North Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale’s McCormick Ranch.
They are not exaggerating about the luxury part. “We take care of all the amenities,” says managing partner Jon Krumdieck. “All you got to do is come in and put your bum on a bike.” Those amenities at the 3,154-square-foot Cyclebar in McCormick Ranch include towels, showers room, lockers, shoes, and of course the top-of-the-line CycleTheatre.
The CycleTheatre features 50 bikes ready for 50-minute, intense AF rides. These high-energy rides are led by certified CycleStar instructors and accompanied by wide-screen graphics, timely LED lighting, and an in-room DJ. You can even peep your performance data thanks to CycleStats. Post-ride amenities include fresh fruit, infused water, and aromatherapy for the so inclined.

“It’s an escape away from the typical gym,” says Krumdieck, “[Participants] know who’s in the class, they can get comfortable with the instructors.”
So keep that address from earlier handy, as CycleBar’s Arizona opening will kick off with a 10-day CycleBlast celebration on May 5 – meaning people can show up and try 50 CycleBar workouts on the free. Participants must first register at the McCormick Ranch CycleBar website, while groups and community organizations can pregame with Cyclebar before the grand opening on April 25.
If that’s not enough, CycleBar is the type of high-end fitness franchise that gives back. Cyclebar has created CycleGiving, which works to assist in raising proceeds for companies, organizations, and families by hosting indoor rides.
The introductory offer come opening day is a three for $39 pack, or $13 a ride, so future Cyclbaristas can come get a feeling for the place. For more details, visit the McCormick Ranch CycleBar website.
