Flywheel Sports is shifting gears uptown. Next week, the popular cycling studio will open a brand-new, freestanding studio on the Upper West Side. This means it’ll be vacating its spot in the JCC (76th and Amsterdam), where it had been holding spin classes.
“After almost 3 years I’m sad to say goodbye to our great friends at the JCC on November 11th,” wrote Flywheel founder Ruth Zuckerman in an email this weekend. But it’s probably time.
The new studio at 466 Columbus Avenue (between 82nd and 83rd) is more in line with Flywheel’s current status as a high-end, rapidly expanding brand—it now has studios in ten states (plus Dubai).
It closely resembles its Flatiron and Upper East Side locations in design. There are two bathrooms, three showers, and three changing rooms, and windows that face Columbus. And the Upper West Side studio will be Flywheel’s second largest one in the city at about 3,500 square feet—that’s 1,000 more than Upper East Side location, says Flywheel VP and spokesperson Alana Radmin.
The new studio opens Wednesday, November 14, as does Flywheel’s first location in Connecticut. —Melisse Gelula
