FAQ’s

 

 

What is BYKlyn? 

BYKlyn is Brooklyn’s OWN indoor cycling studio, located at 258 Flatbush Avenue, between Prospect Place and St. Marks Avenue.  We offer group indoor cycling classes for all levels from the newbie to the triathlete.

 

 

Do I need cycling shoes?

We do recommend our riders use cycling shoes - it just makes for a better ride! (see "Why Clip-In" below) We rent shoes for a $2 fee. Not down with that? We have cages that attach to our pedals and you are able to slide in with your regular athletic shoes. Are you a Monthly BYK Pass holder?  Good news! Shoes are included. Have your own shoes? No problem. Our bikes are both LOOK/Delta & SPD compatible.  

 

 

Why clip-in?

With clips, your foot is kept straight—no flexing— and more of your leg power is applied directly to the pedals instead of being absorbed in the flexing of your feet.   The result is that you will be able to apply power to the pedals throughout the entire pedal stroke instead of just mashing down on them.  This gives you a more intense work out and better results.  

 

Do you supply water? 

 At BYKlyn, we do what we can to cut down on plastic waste…so we don’t sell water in disposable plastic water bottles like most gyms.  Instead, we sell very handsome, BPA-free, reusable water bottles that are great for biking and just having around.   Oh, and we give you all the bottled water you want dispensed through large reusable containers located in the BYKbox.  Drink up—hydration is critical for cyclists!

 

Do you have lockers?

We don't have lockers at BYKlyn, but we have big shelves and hooks in the BYKbox—the room that houses our bikes--so no worries, your stuff is with you and safe.

 

Do you have showers? 

Alas, no showers, but we have 2 bathrooms/changing rooms. But, for those who need it, we sell something called the Shower Pill which is a disposable oversized hand-towel that does the trick for that shower on the go.

 

Do your classes include an arm work out? 

Yes!  One of our signature classes is BYKBody that includes 5 minutes of arm sizzle and chisel.  At BYKlyn we dismount and do all arm workouts next to the bike.  This ensures that the rider can stabilize the lower body, better engage the core and achieve proper form.  The result—better and safer arm work outs for all.   

 

 

Do you offer anything other than cycling workouts? 

BYKlyn is about cycling.   But we offer a variety of classes that combine cycling and other workouts.   We offer BYK&Boot that combines cycling with boot camp, BYK Yoga that combines cycling with yoga and BYK-lates that combines cycling and a mat-based Pilates core work out. 

 

What happens if I'm put on the waitlist? 

You're waitlisted... it's ok! If another rider cancels before class, you will automatically be added to the roster and will receive an email and text telling you the good news. If that does not happen, you may also pop in to the studio right before class and we'll see what we can do to get you on the BYK! Unclaimed BYKs are opened to waitlisters three minutes before class start time.

 

 

What is your cancellation policy? 

Cancellation Policy: To receive a full credit for a cancellation of a ride reservation, you must cancel your ride reservation at least 2 hours prior to the start of the scheduled class. Classes not cancelled within 2 hours will be charged to your series. You can cancel the reservation online by logging into your profile or call us: 347-987-4771. For non-package holders the cancellation policy is 12 hours.

 

 

What are the expiration dates on class packages? 

The 5 class pack expires in 3 months and the 10 class pack expires within 6 months.

 

 

Wanna have a party in the BYK Box? 

In case you didn't notice, we like a good party! And we do it all... birthdays, bridal party BYK & Boot, charity rides & fundraisers, corporate events...you name it. Email us for more details at info@byklyn.com.
