The new CycleBar spin studio located on Magazine Street is not only a superb workout facility; it’s also a community-minded business that supports important causes. As part of a nationwide fundraising initiative, the indoor cycling franchise recently held an exclusive pop-up ride event — the Ride Your Heart Out fundraiser — at the New Orleans Jazz Market to promote heart health and raise money for the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

The spin studio brought 35 bicycles to the Jazz Market, and spin instructors (aptly referred to as CycleStars) held three separate classes for the event. Over 100 participants donated $25 each and showed up for the ride, and 100 percent of the proceeds were donated to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
