Up!Cycle is Sydney's raddest rhythm riding studio

It's not about us

Up!Cycle is about your fitness, your fun, your self-love, your vibe, your experience and about staying rad!
Riders are transformed into a powerful and unique musical world and communal experience. It's one that will see them sweat, dance and completely lose themselves in the music in unison with the room.

Be Rad

Push the pedals (figuratively and literally).

Step outside your comfort zone and into our rad studio where you’ll be transported elsewhere. Jump on a bike and get your heart racing at paces that Usain Bolt doesn’t know.

Strength starts in your mind, we’ll help you spin your way there.

Have Fun

You’re only one good spin class away from a good mood.

Unleash your multitasking ability – which you didn’t know you had – and dance on your bike!

Ride to the beat and have fun doing it.

At Up!Cycle it’s all good, baby baby.

Love your health

Or make like Bieber and Love Yourself.

Harness the benefits of a cycling workout while having fun. Aerobic activity is great for the heart and lungs. Breathe deeper and feel good doing it. Cycling will challenge your body and have you feeling great – inside and out.

Fluro tights optional.

Instructors

Shantelle
What do you feel a rhythm riding class should be?
A class should let you let go of everything and escape to a place where you are free.

Hidden talents
Remembering everyones names

What or who made you want to be an instructor?
A personal time in my life when I felt like the only thing that I could do to escape my struggles was spin and wanted to always give that back to people and let them feel like no matter what they are going through they are never alone and teaching helped me to be able to spread that love

If you could have any super-power what would it be? What would your hero name be?
Make everyone smile
Superhero name: DJ Shoni

What are you unnecessarily passionate about?
Caps, I have one from everywhere I have travelled

Favourite dance move of all time

One thing that you wish would come back in fashion
Tear - away pants…..oh wait they are back - woohoo

What do you feel a rhythm riding class should be?
A space where you can come in and unleash what every negativity you’ve been holding on to. You should always leave a class feeling better than when you came in.

Hidden talents
Folding old plastic bags into neat little pockets.

What or who made you want to be an instructor?
In early 2017 I ruptured my ACL during a boxing fight. During recovery, I really struggled with how frustrated I felt with my body. I was so fortunate an instructor friend of mine, introduced me to rhythm cycling which gave me a physical (and emotional!) outlet. It really taught me how to love my body and trust myself again.

How would you like your UpCycle class to be described?
Bad-ass

Why is your UpCycle class different?
Martial arts is what originally drew me to the fitness world, and I like to think that shows in the way I ride. I’m also a musician, so my attention to good beats and driving music really helps riders push past their limits!

If you could have any super-power what would it be? What would your hero name be?
La Frescura (The Freshness): To turn any average meal into something delicious!

What are you unnecessarily passionate about?
Veganism and your MBTI (look it up and tell me what you are...).

Favourite dance move of all time
Skanking, The Windmill, Picking Up Change and other punk/hardcore moves.

One thing that you wish would come back in fashion
Plastic chocker necklaces.

What do you feel a rhythm riding class should be? 
For me it isn’t about looking good on the outside, it’s about feeling good on the inside. No matter what’s going on in your life or what noise is in your head, jump on the bike and we can clear it all together – call me the Spin Doctor!

Hidden talents
Well apart from being able to belly dance, it is probably time management. I know it sounds lame, but studying law full time, working a full time job and working as a fitness instructor has made me the QUEEN of organisation!

What or who made you want to be an instructor?
One of my best mates asked me to join them at a cycle class (the first time I had ever stepped foot in a gym) and I loved it so much I started going every day. Eventually I moved from the back of the class to the front until the manager asked if I wanted to start teaching - the rest is history!
If you could have any super-power what would it be?
What would your hero name be?

If I had a super power it would have to be the ability to cast love potions on anyone FOR anyone (clearly I'm a Libra... and single!) – so obviously my name would be Cutie Cupid.

What are you unnecessarily passionate about?
Country music! It has such raw and honest emotions and I can always find a country song to match my emotions on any given day. Country theme rides are on their way.

Favourite dance move of all time
I can floss all day, every day.

One thing that you wish would come back in fashion
Bring back the 90s – I am talking ¾ length boardies, tank tops and puka shell necklaces.

Frenchie
What do you feel a rhythm riding class should be?
It should be intense; and full of dance moves!

My class will be described like:
A crazy ride through the South of France!!!! 🤪

My difference?
My energy and 🔥

Hidden talents
SINGERRRR or not! Incredible dancer on the bike 💃🏻

What or who made you want to be an instructor?
I discovered rhythm riding trough a studio in France, I tried, I loved it, I became an instructor and now I love my job!!! Can’t stop. It’s addictive!

If you could have any super-power what would it be? What would your hero name be?
Super power? Teleportation. Lara Croft for sure!

What are you unnecessarily passionate about?
I'm passionate about cooking, pole dance & crossfit, gymnastistics, working out, my job (for real LOL)

Favourite dance move of all time
Booty Bounce 🍑

One thing that you wish would come back in fashion
Mmhhh no idea, I'm in FASHION all the time 😎😂  

Frequently Asked Questions

With Up!Cycle you pay-per-ride. That means no contracts or lock-in  memberships. You only pay for the rides you intend to use.

We provide towels and have water in the studio. Just bring yourself (and your friends) and be ready to have some fun.

Wear anything that is comfortable for a bike. It’s hot in there though, so training singlets and shorts are best. You will also need to wear your socks and a smile.

Up!Cycle is a full body workout -on a bike!

Our classes combine fast and fun moves, heavy isolation for strength, and weighted upper body training.

Our focus is on finding the right music to make you forget its a workout.

Anyone can ride with us. It’s your ride and you are in control of the resistance on the bike. Some moves may seem tricky at the start, but you can always sit back and turn your legs over, enjoy the rad music. The moves will come in time.

We recommend you wear cleated shoes as they allow you to pull up on the backstroke as well as pushing down. Giving you a better leg workout.

No cleated shoes? No problems! We provide these. Just ask the front desk, or book online when you buy your tickets to ride.

Generally you can expect to burn from 450-700 calories in a 45-minute workout.

Anyone can ride, but if you are pregnant, we recommend you speak to your doctor before riding.

Our Rockstar instructors want you to be comfortable, safe and have fun in the studio. If you want one-on-one instruction, they would be happy to help.

We also offer personal training sessions on the bikes outside of scheduled class times. You can book these at the Reception.

We know things happen. That’s why we allow you to cancel your booking without losing your ride 4 hrs+ prior to the scheduled class start time. You can ‘unreserve’ online and use your credit any time to book into another class.
If you need to cancel less than 4 hrs prior to class we ask that you still ‘late cancel’ online so that your friends on the waitlist, who really wanted to ride, can enjoy a class.
