That new SoulCycle location that you've been waiting for in the Castro is slated to open in time for Pride. A rep for the indoor cycling company tells Racked that the 50-bike studio will be ready for business at 400 Castro Street on June 25th, and will celebrate with its first float in the San Francisco Pride parade.
This will be the brand's third SF studio and the fifth in the Bay Area. While there will be fewer bikes than the Union Street and SoMa outposts, Castro will boast full men's and women's locker rooms with two and three showers respectively. Located directly above the Muni station at Harvey Milk Plaza, this will also be the most transit-accessible studio in the city.
We can't promise that a SoulCycle session will burn off all the calories you consume across the street at Hot Cookie, but it will be a strong first step toward getting your beach body back.
