Last Wednesday in Brentwood, we grabbed our Tiger Beat magazines and practiced our high pitch screams because Michael Vara led the pack for a ONE DIRECTION RIDE. The Soul Blog has received multiple requests for the playlist, so whether this Brit boy band is your guiltiest pleasure or you're a One Direction fanatic, take a listen and imagine rocking that bike!
Last Tuesday in Union Square, the Parker Party got festive. If you're looking for a holiday playlist that will pump you up, look no further. Warning: this is not your grandma's holiday playlist.
Turn it on. Turn it up. Rock it out.
Last Thursday in Roslyn, we celebrated one of our favorite triple threats as Julie D. led the pack for a J. LO RIDE! We were booty-shaking, fist-pumping and head-banging to all our favorite hits by Jenny from the Block. Check out the pics from the ride and listen to the playlist on Spotify!
Last Friday and Saturday nights, SoulCycle held its most ambitous rides ever. Theater and fitness merged for two very special PERFORMANCE RIDES of MOULIN ROUGE! Master Instructor JANET FITZGERALD was the ring leader, hosting a 60-minute live enactment of the show complete with opera singers, dancers, and musical talent (performed by our own amazing Soul instructors and staff)! More than just a workout, these performances were celebrations of community, music, theater, and life.
This past Saturday, Soul Scarsdale perfected their fist pump and waved their lighters in the air as GABRIELLE WISE continued her theme ride series with an ALL LIVE RIDE! Riding to live concert tracks spanning every musical genre and decade, we sweat it out as we sang along. And with prizes for riders who wear their favorite concert tee, it was a ride to remember!
Earlier this summer, ROARKE WALKER led the pack for an inspirational ride benefitting THE LOLLIPOP THEATER NETWORK, a nonprofit that helps bring the magic of movies to children confined in hospitals.

Last night we put aside the Rock vs. Rap rivalry and opted for something more harmonious: ROCK/RAP COLLABORATIONS! With LORI ABELES leading the helm, we were head-banging, fist-pumping and booty-shaking to tunes with rock AND rhythm. No matter where your allegiances lie, this ride had something for everyone. Check out pics, playlist and music videos below!
On Cinco De Mayo, JULIE DERMER rocked a Billy Joel Theme Ride in East Hampton! With margaritas flowin, Billy Joel playin' and the sun shining, it was clear that Soul Summer had begun! Check out Julie D's playlist and listen to it on Spotify!

Last Wednesday, MARVIN rocked it out late night in Union Square! Our Night Riders arrived at 9:30PM and followed up class with some low-cal cocktails.

On Tuesday night, SUE MOLNAR (and PARKER RADCLIFFE pictured on the bike), led an amazing GLEE! Theme Ride. Rocking out to our favorite hits from the Glee Cast, there was singing, sweating and SOUL.

Last night in Scarsdale STRING and TAYE rocked the Dale with their OLD SKOOL hip-hop ride. With old favorites like "Bust A Move" and "Wild Thing," it's no wonder they brought the house down. Check out pictures from last night's ride and the playlist below!
Yesterday afternoon, LOUISE GASSMAN taught a much-anticipated Broadway Musical Ride! We perfected our breath control by belting out classic show tunes and gave our regards to Broadway by riding strong! Check out the pictures and playlist below and a special shout-out to Bob, who spent his 70th birthday riding with us! Don't worry Broadway fans, there will be an encore!
Last Thursday night JULIE DERMER led a VIP NIGHTCLUB RIDE in Scarsdale! With a red carpet, a bouncer stamping hands and all the hottest remixes, it was just like being in one of NYC's hottest clubs! Throw in a killer workout and the fact that we were home by 9:30PM? Now that's what we call a great night out. Check out pics from the ride and the dance-tastic playlist below!
Last Saturday night, DANNY KOPEL and LAUREN BRUKER teamed up for a legendary ride in Union Square, sweatin it out to the music of ROBYN!

Check out the playlist, pictures from the ride, and video of LB and Danny rocking the strobe light. Wanna see their incredible choreographed dance moves? You'll have to sign up for the sequel.
