How Did CycleBar Noho Score Overall?
The full client experience at CycleBar was great, achieving our Fit Guide 4-Star Award.
The class was also impressive and achieved our 4-Star Class Experience Award.
CycleBar NoHo is featured in our article The Best Cycling Studios And Experiences In New York.
The class experience was strong but it was the equipment and studio section that particularly stood out, with immaculately clean facilities and attractive studio design.

The Reception Service
During our anonymous evaluation, the reception staff that we spoke to over the phone were helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. In the branch, the team guided the client through the process, but could have made a little more effort to engage and connect with the client.
The Class Experience
CycleBar NoHo has received The Fit Guide 4-Star Award for its excellent class experience.
The coach arrived early and was available to help people get set up, before conducting an induction. During the main session, the coach was confident and knowledgeable about form and technique and offered positive energy, but they did allow the class to run over time.
The Equipment And Studio
The equipment was extremely clean and in great condition, with numerous branding touches around the studio. Lighting effects were controlled by the coach and added to the class experience.
The Facilities And Public Areas
The public areas had an interesting industrial style with lofty ceilings and metal accents. Extras such as towels and water were plentiful and complimentary. Whilst the facilities were overall clean and smart, a few cleanliness issues were noted by our evaluator.
Workout and shower towels were provided free of charge. Lockers were provided with number locks. Free water refill stations were available.
Digital And Technology
CycleBar uses a performance tracking system with power meters on the bike and stats displayed on the screen. Whilst this is fun and motivating, the instructor only periodically shows the stats briefly on the screen, to keep the focus off the performance.
We found the website functional and informative, but more details could have been provided during the booking process to help us prepare, such as class policies.
