When Soulcycle's temporary closure in Tribeca came earlier this month, we figured that most regulars there would deal with it in stride. But the cycling studio's renovation is really taking a toll on its "rock stars": "I'm like, 'don't talk to me about Tribeca, I can't deal,'" said one regular. And hopping on a bike at another studio isn't as easy as it sounds, guys. Getting to the West Village studio "will take six or seven minutes in an Uber, if I get on Google traffic and tell him which way to go," another detailed. Let's just hope the construction crew is ahead of schedule. [NYT]
