Memorial Day weekend brought droves of Manhattanites out for their first taste of summer. The villages on the East End were thrumming with shoppers, bikers, skateboarders, and the beaches and bays saw kayakers and paddle boarders skimming across the water.
There was also a virtual buzz going on in East Hampton and Bridgehampton, where hundreds of dedicated acolytes showed up at SoulCycle, where the studio celebrated its re-opening in Bridgehampton and its debut in East Hampton Village at the former Spanierman Gallery space on Newtown Lane (in the parking lot behind Babette’s).
For those celebrations, the SoulCycle staff partnered with the Juicy Naam, Anke’s Fit Bakery, and East Hampton Gourmet to offer their clientele smoothies and healthy goodies. SoulCycle
Alec Baldwin took in two classes at the EH location and Kelly Ripa and Rosanna Scotto were at SoulCycle in Bridgehampton almost every day of the holiday weekend.
Scotto, along with Chef Marcus Samuelsson, will be hosting Dan’s Taste of Two Forks, a food and wine event, on Saturday, July 16, at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton. More information is available at danstasteoftwoforks.com.
SoulCycle combines a mental component of inspirational coaching, with great music and a FULL-BODY WORKOUT on the bike. Not only do Riders burn calories, get an intense 45-minute cardio workout, but using the SoulCycle Method, they simultaneously tone their upper bodies using hand weights and do core exercises. Cyclists ride in candlelight, with a life-size black and white mural of an open road behind them.
Reservations for classes can be made online at soul-cycle.com.
