Frequently Asked Questions
I’m new to indoor cycling, can I keep up?
We LOVE our first-time riders! We think you’re pretty awesome for trying something new and will make sure you know the ins and the outs so you feel like a pro after your very first class. No need to worry about keeping up. You are in control of the intensity 100% of the time and we will never put you on the spot. We always ride in a room that is lit only by black and colored lights and to the soft glow of our Himalayan salt lamps. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your first class. We will give you a little tour of the studio and get you set up from the shoes to the bike fitting.
When should I arrive?
We operate on a “5 minute rule” meaning you need to be checked in for your ride at least 5 minutes prior to the scheduled class start time. If this is your first time here, please arrive 15 minutes prior to class. If you are not here 5 minutes prior to class start time we may give your seat away to a drop-in rider and you will forfeit your class. We do understand that life can be unpredictable and sometimes you will run a little late. If you are on your way please call the studio at 401-816-0404 and we would be more than happy to hold your seat. We cannot allow any rider arriving more than 5 minutes after class start time to ride. Late-cancels and no-shows will result in forfeiting your class via your MINDBODY account.
What should I wear?
Wear clothing that you are ready to sweat in! Tighter fitting work out clothes are usually best. Avoid loose fitting pants since its possible to get caught in the pedals.
Do I need cycling shoes?
Yes! Just like you wear your running shoes for running you wear your cycling shoes for cycling! Cycling shoes provide a more secure position on the pedals enabling you to work much more efficiently and produce more powerful pedal strokes. Bring your own cycling shoes (our pedals are SPD compatible) or rent in-studio for $3.
Please note, our pedals are also equipped with cages for sneakers. If you choose to ride in sneakers make sure they have stiffer sole for a more comfortable ride.
How do I sign up?
Start by making an account with our studio via MINDBODY. From your account you’ll easily be able to buy ride credits and book your classes. If you have any questions about making an account with MINDBODY email us at email@example.com if you need any help!
Sign ups for classes are available online via MINDBODY and our booking window is currently 14 days out. Always feel free to drop-in for a class, we would love to ride with you!
Do I need to make a reservation for class?
Since classes can fill up fast we do recommend that you always book online in advance to guarantee a bike. We do welcome drop-in riders, but keep in mind that classes may already be full. You can make a reservation online up to 14 days in advance. We do not accept unpaid reservations over the phone or in person. You must have a valid class or class package on your account in order to reserve a bike.
Can I cancel my reservation?
How does the waitlist work?
To cancel your reservation please do so via your MINDBODY account at least 5 hours prior to your scheduled class. If you cancel after the 5 hour window or “late cancel” you forfeit your ride. We do not offer refunds for missed classes. All “unlimited” class packages are subject to $5 late-cancel and $10 no-show fees per occurrence.
We cannot process reservation cancelations via our social media accounts or email.
Waitlisting is a great way to get into the class you register for and it's not uncommon to move through an entire waitlist so chances are always VERY high that you will get in. We will automatically add you to the roster up to 1 hour before class start time.
We will call you if a spot opens up <1 hour before class start time if you are still on the waitlist.
Two-way texting is an account option to manage your waitlisted reservations. Please keep in mind that our cancellation policy applies to waitlisted reservations. Replying "N" to your reservation in the 5-hour late cancel window performs a late cancel on your account. Replying "N" outside of the cancellation window performs an early cancel on your account.
Please remember that when you waitlist for a class you are signing up for the class in the event that a spot opens up. If at any point you decide you would no longer be able to attend, please remove your waitlisted reservation via your Mindbody account to avoid being added to the roster in the late cancel window.
If your waitlisted reservation drops in "unpaid" because you do not have enough class credits on file to hold the reservation you may be charged the single class price of $15.
Sign up for text message notifications by texting “START” to: 774-425-7597
What is your refund policy?
We have a no-refund policy.
Do you have changing rooms?
We don't have designated changing rooms but you are welcome to use our large bathroom to change in.
Do you have space to store my things during class?
Yes! We have cubbies in the lobby that you’ll be able to keep your things in. We do suggest that you don't bring any valuables with you to class.
We hold a strict no cell phone policy in-studio. We offer cell phone charging in the lobby so your phone can plug-in while you un-plug!
I would like to rent the studio for an event, who do I contact?
If you have an event where you would like to rent the studio for a class please email Kayla at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We would love to work with you for a charity, birthday parties, corporate events, bachelorette parties etc. We are super flexible, fun and offer lots of options when planning your special ride!
I'm interested in becoming part of the SALT Cycle team, who do I contact?
If you are interested in working at our front desk or becoming an instructor please email your resume to Kayla at email@example.com and tell us a little bit about what you would like to do and why you would like to work with us and we will get back to you!
