Ridgefield residents Corey Londoner and Amy Pal will open a cycling studio, JoyRide Ridgefield, at 62 Danbury Road Saturday for a high-energy, calorie-torching, full-body workout.
To mark the opening, JoyRide is hosting a grand opening event starting at 7 a.m. Saturday with healthy snacks, chair massages and raffle prizes at the end of four classes during the morning. Prizes include free class packs, JoyRide clothes and merchandise plus a chance to be a DJ for a day in a future class.
"There's nothing quite like it in Ridgefield," said Corey Londoner. "Our aim is to breathe some excitement into the everyday workout."
The space is renovated to include 35 bicycles, a concert-quality sound system and a stadium-style platform. The space also includes WiFi and an inviting lounge. The cycling studio is taking advantage of its location next door to Parma deli.
The noon class, called Cycle Lunch, offers riders a choice of salad or wrap before class that will be waiting for them after class to help people short of time at lunch.
JoyRide also plans to work with another neighbor, Buddhi Mat Yoga to offer an indoor cycling-yoga 6-wee workshop to start in January.
"Our plan is to work together with other like-minded organizations," said Amy Pal.
