It turns out The Sports Bra Challenge is just one of many opportunities you’ll have to hop on a SoulCycle bike in a city park this spring.

On Thursday, April 11, the spin studio is delivering (i.e., carrying up the stairs) 100 of its signature yellow bikes to the High Line, where riders will get a dose of sweaty spirituality from Laurie Cole and Stacey Griffith. When the sun sets over the Hudson, the studio’s signature grapefruit-scented candles will keep cyclists illuminated. And after class, champagne and canapes will be waiting.

The event is a fundraiser for the Friends of the High Line, with proceeds supporting efforts to keep the park clean and green, and the free programs—like art exhibits and tours—offered throughout the year.

Of course, this ride is more like a gala on wheels (no gown needed), so your class pack or VIP membership won’t get you a bike. Tickets range from $500 to $5,000.
