Offering heat, electricity, showers and much-needed stress-relieving workouts, JoyRide Cycling Studio has resumed its full schedule of indoor cycling, circuit training, Pilates and Go Figure classes after several days without power resulting from Hurricane Sandy. Also, in an effort to support hurricane victims in need, JoyRide will donate proceeds from their popular 8:30 am indoor cycling classes on Saturday and Sunday to Save the Children's Hurricane Sandy relief funds.
Save the Children is providing basic necessities for young children, including baby blankets, clothing and hygiene supplies, as well as providing safe areas for children to play at shelters in New York and New Jersey. These child-friendly spaces are designed to help displaced children recover from disaster-induced stress and trauma.

Saturday’s relief ride will be led by Co-Owner and Lead Instructor Rhodie Lorenz, and Sunday’s class will be led by Mo Prester. Riders can reserve their bikes online, in advance, at joyridestudio.com under Reserve.
“Westport was hit hard by the storm, and many of our riders are still recovering from the damage,” said Lorenz (Westport, Conn.). “Not only do we want to offer them a respite, we want to help those still in need by donating financial support.”
About JoyRide Cycling Studio
JoyRide is Fairfield County’s only fitness boutique dedicated to indoor cycling, or Spinning®, offering high-energy classes in a modern, specially designed space. JoyRide's exclusive training method combines core elements of Pilates with indoor cycling to maximize cardiovascular benefits and burn calories and fat.
Known for its cult following and dramatic results, indoor cycling has revolutionized the exercise world with expertly choreographed, full-body workouts set to heart-pumping music playlists. While JoyRiders can go at their own pace, the group fitness environment makes the experience come alive. Enthusiastic riders and instructors infuse an indoor cycling class with high-voltage energy that takes the experience from “just exercise” to an endorphin-surged and challenging workout.
JoyRide is the brainchild of three Westport women -- Amy Hochhauser, Debbie Katz and Rhodie Lorenz. While they all had different professional backgrounds -- Hochhauser, an attorney, Katz, an advertising professional, and Lorenz, a popular indoor cycling and Pilates instructor -- they all shared a passionate idea to create a premier indoor cycling studio unlike anything else in Fairfield County. Since JoyRide opened in June, 2011, and it has become the go-to indoor cycling destination for riders of all ages and fitness levels.
JoyRide is located in the new fitness complex at 1200 Post Road East, behind Crate and Barrel, in Westport, Conn. For more information and reservations, please visit JoyRide’s web site at joyridestudio.com.
