Yup, there was a spin class outside the New York Stock Exchange today

This morning, on Wall Street, alongside traders knotting their ties in line at Starbucks and brokers reading Bleacher Report on their BlackBerrys, Keoni Hudoba, the creative director of Cyc Fitness, led a pack of 25 riders outside the New York Stock Exchange.

With tourists and Wall Street workers gawking at the class, Hudoba still managed to make us feel like we were the only ones on the narrow street. “What are you riding for!?” Hudoba screamed. One rider answered “for health” and another shouted, “for wellness!” (the class was in celebration of a fellow wellness website, Everyday Health, going public).

After boxing to “Shots” by LMFAO (a great way to kickstart a Monday, by the way), Hudoba asked us to close our eyes as we sprinted. He paused the music at the same dramatic second he asked to stop our bikes—and for once, New York actually sounded spiritually quiet.

At the end of the outdoor ride, Hudoba asked us to look up. Above us was a very clear, very blue sky, surrounded by lower Manhattan buildings. “Sometimes you get so caught up in what you’re doing. But look at this, we’re in the middle of Wall Street!” Hudoba said, creating one of those New York City fitness moments where you feel one with the bustling, often maddening metropolis. —Molly Gallagher
