Harlem Cycle Expands with a New Studio on 125th Street That's Twice as Nice
The Harlem Cycle on 125th Street has 24 spinning bikes.

Harlem Cycle, which opened in 2016 as the neighborhood's first and only cycling studio, just debuted its second location—and it's twice the size of the original.


Located at 54-62 W 125th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues, the new spot accommodates up to 24 people per spin class.


In contrast, the studio on 138th Street, housed in a historic brownstone, has 12 spin bikes (but it also features strength classes).

Reached via an orange stairwell stenciled with words like "Dreams," "Hope" and "We Rise," the 125th Street space occupies the basement of a brand new mixed-use building on Harlem's main street.


A front check-in area, lined with Harlem Cycle merch and candles from the Harlem-inspired 125 Collection, leads to a large, open studio with two dozen spin bikes complete with RPM monitors that help you track your workout.

There are anywhere from two to four classes scheduled per day, mostly in the mornings and evenings. Some are themed, like Wayback Wednesday and Friday evening's Hip Hop class.


No matter the class type, all are welcome. As the motto on the wall of the new studio reads, "Every. Body. Belongs Here."
