What is Island RIDE?

Island RIDE is an indoor cycling experience like none other. We incorporate interval-training concepts with performance measurement to create a dynamic, efficient, effective and exciting cardio-focused workout in an electrifying night club atmosphere. Our exhilarating 45-minute RIDE takes your heart rate to significant highs and recuperative lows from start to finish.

At Island RIDE we utilize the power of Stages Flight (formerly VismoX), a web-based data analysis tool. Its functions include dynamic FTP testing, custom intensity rides, GPS rides, and competition modes. The system tracks your individual performance statistics during each ride. Once class is over your stats are emailed to you and tracked in your online account, providing data such as calories burned and energy generated, which allows for setting and achieving goals in future classes.

Knowing your power output, or how much work you are doing, is essential for understanding your fitness level and how you are progressing. Since heart rate can be widely affected by physiological influences, training using both power output (work done) and heart rate (response to work done) data will give you the most comprehensive feedback in order to fine-tune your training plan.

Is Island RIDE for beginners?

Island RIDE is for everyBODY! Whether you’re training or toning, our RIDE concept was created to ensure the ultimate indoor cycling experience for every level of fitness, including beginners!

Do I have to become a member of Island RIDE?

At Island RIDE you pay-per-class. We have several options available based on your specific needs. You can pay as you go with an individual RIDE, buy packages of 3, 5, 10 and 20 RIDEs or Monthly unlimited RIDEs are available.

How do I book a reservation?

Create your own personal account, continue on to the purchase page then select the package that works best for you. From there, click the RESERVE tab and choose your class.  Once you check in at the studio you reserve your favorite bike. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express or cash (no checks please). A picture ID will be required at your very first class.

Do I need to bring anything special for class?

3 Key Essentials: 1) yourself, 2) something to drink and 3) a positive attitude and desire to enjoy the RIDE!  We’ll handle the rest – sweat towels available upon request (although we encourage you to bring your own), complimentary post-class chilled eucalyptus-infused towels (our thanks to you!), a water bottle refill station and ear plugs are available if you are sensitive to loud music.

Do I need to wear cycle shoes?

We HIGHLY recommend wearing cycling shoes although they are not required to ride. Our bike pedals are able to fit SPD clips and can accommodate your regular athletic shoes. It is important to note that the effectiveness is much greater when wearing cycle shoes. There is a more balanced use of the leg muscles, providing stability to the knee and reducing foot movement, which decreases the possibility of injury. Foot tenderness is reduced because your cycling shoes are attached to the pedal (aka clipped in). This prevents the numbness that is caused by athletic shoes squeezed into the narrow toe cages. Lastly, cycling shoes have reinforced soles that can improve performance and reduce stress to the Achilles tendon and calf muscles.

Can I cancel my reserved class?

We understand that life happens and cancellations are necessary. But no worries, just stay in line with our cancellation policy and you won’t get charged.
Cancellations made at least 12 hours before your scheduled class will not be charged. Monthly unlimited members will be charged $10 for no shows or cancellations not made 12 hours prior to the reserved class.
To cancel your class, simply log into your account, click MY RESERVATIONS, then click “unreserve”. We apologize but we are unable to accept cancellations via the phone or via email.

Will I lose my bike if I’m late?

We will hold your bike for you if you are running late, but you have to let us know.  Just give us a call  at (808) 634-7800 so we can hold your spot.   NOTE, we will release your spot EXACTLY 2 minutes prior to the start of class if we aren’t given notice.

Does my package have an expiration date?

All purchased packages expire 6 months from the date of first use. Monthly unlimited ride packages are valid for 30 days from the date of first use.

Can I book  private RIDE?

For sure! We offer individual one-on-one classes or private group classes for teams, businesses, groups, clubs, etc upon request. Please email team@islandridekauai.com for more information about scheduling a private RIDE.

Is there an age requirement?

Our minimum age requirement is 16 years of age and minimum height requirement of 4’11” or taller due to proper bike fit for safety. Guests under 18 of age must have a parent/guardian complete a waiver before attending and must be accompanied in class at all times by an adult.

Is childcare available?

Our space is limited which does not allow us to provide childcare at this time. Please do not leave children under 16 unattended.
