The Boom Cycle Story

Boom Cycle hit the London fitness scene in 2011 with its tagline of 'party on a bike’. Founders Robert and Hilary Dowland launched their first studio in a basement space in Shoreditch, East London, with a focus on fun, accessibility and empowerment.

Boom Cycle has three London locations in Hammersmith, Holborn and Monument and was acquired by United Fitness Brands in 2021.
