Why BYKlyn? BYKlyn sets itself apart from other cycling studios with their emphasis on balancing community and individual growth with challenging and diverse "real ride" classes.

What’s your class really like: I am a passionate rhythm rider who strives to channel that empowering connection between mind, body, music, and bike. My rides are dramatic and challenging, yet accessible and fun. I've always been a bit of a sucker for controlled and weighted speed drills - Ready, set, GO!

What’s your music vibe: My ride experience is 100% dependent on finding the most inspiring, fun and diverse music for every challenge. Maybe Missy Elliot/Rihanna for a fast flat drill and Tiesto/Armin van Buuren with those beat drops/climaxes for hills and sprints. The majority of my playlists are comprised of remixes from every genre. However, I tend to find the most inspiration from trap, hip hop, trance, and deep house(beat driven).

Life beyond the BYKbox: When I'm not lifting or cycling, you'll find me using a brush to push oil paints around on a canvas. I'm a full-time representational fine artist working out of my apartment in Park Slope, BK. I'm fortunate enough to be able to spend every day of my week doing two of the things I love most - besides eating and ogling other people’s dogs.

Anything else you want us to know:
I am a perfectionist by nature. Hence, I have perfected the art of eating ice cream by the pint. Also, I am captivated by world history, especially ancient history.
