While SoulCycle–gate (also known as the Tribeca studio's temporary closure for a three-week renovation that regulars are just not okay with) rages on, a glimmer of silver lining: A second studio on the Upper West Side is slated to open in early 2015. DNAinfo reports that the outpost will open at 2465 Broadway between West 91st and 92nd streets, not far from the existing studio on Amsterdam Avenue and 77th Street.
The 3,500-square foot space doesn't sound especially different from other SoulCycle locations, and will include one 63-bike studio as well as men's and women's locker rooms. Since it'll be right next to an Equinox gym, the West Nineties could become your mom's new favorite fitness destination.
But up first? The Financial District studio, which should open by the end of the year—that's what Tribeca rockstars really need right now.
