BIKE + BARRE FAQs

WHAT IS BIKE + BARRE?

A new spin on spinning, this 55-minute hybrid class is the best of both worlds! We’ll start with 25 minutes of high-energy, cardio-intense cycling on the RealRyder bike focused on moving to the rhythm of the music with functional choreography. We will finish the class with 25 minutes of FireBarre, where the emphasis will be on moving the body in multiple planes of motion, working the waist, sculpting the arms and stretching.

WHAT’S THE REAL RYDER?

Firebrand is the first and only studio in Oregon to use the revolutionary RealRyder, an “unstationary” stationary bike that tilts, turns and leans with the kind of fluid steering, leaning and balancing motion only previously possible on a road bike. Cycling on the RealRyder burns 20% more calories per hour compared to traditional stationary indoor cycling bikes because it involves the upper body and core.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING AND NOT BRING INTO CLASS?


  • Make sure to bring a towel – or more if you’re planning to shower. We sell small towels in our lobby.
  • Also be sure to bring water – lots of it. We sell bottled water at Firebrand. We also offer a purified water system for you to fill up your reusable bottle. For safety reasons, no glass bottles or jars please!
  • Sneakers or cycling shoes for the cycling portion of class (we rent cycling shoes for $2 a pair at the studio). Socks with grips or other studio shoes intended for indoor use only for FireBarre.
  • Leave your backpack, purse, duffel, coat, shopping bags, etc. outside in a locker. For safety reasons and out of respect for your neighbors in class, we do not permit anything other than you, your water bottle and a towel into the studio. We ask that you utilize the lockers.
  • Leave the strong perfumes and lotions for after class, as some students are allergic.
  • No cell phones, tablets or other PDAs in class. Leave them in a locker or if you are expecting an urgent call at the front desk, where we can get you in an emergency. Treat yourself to 50 minutes of peace!

WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR A BIKE+BARRE CLASS?

Arrive about 10-15 minutes before class, in order to stash your stuff in a locker, grab some water and set up your bike. This is especially true if you’re a beginner, need a little more time or have an injury. Class starts on time. Every time. Be considerate to your fellow students. Firebrand reserves the right to close classes after 10 minutes after scheduled start time. Plus we like it when you come early and we can say hello to you before class!
