Take a spin around High Ridge Road in Turn of River and you’ll notice the new fitness studio CycleBar ( It is owned and operated by Brett and Whitney Ehrlich—and it took them nearly three years to make this dream come true. The classes are designed to mix fun with inspiration to keep you peddling in their low-impact/high-intensity cycling classes. What’s the magic formula? Instructors at the front of class guide you through the sessions and improve your form. Plus, CycleBeats, which is the studio’s proprietary playlist, was created to get your heart pumping as you pedal to the beat. And, finally, metrics—the CycleStats give you insights into your performance, so you can keep riding to your goal.

Brett Ehrlich worked as an executive in the sports industry for more than twenty years prior to focusing on this new venture. “We are delighted to bring CycleBar to the area as the community has demonstrated a need for a dedicated indoor cycling studio,” he says. “We enjoy combining the sense of community with the CycleBar experience.”
