About Compass Cycle Studio

What We Do

Compass Cycle is Rochester’s ONLY rhythm riding cycling studio.  We ride to the beat of the music as a pack, in a dark, candlelit room.  With the help of our motivating instructors and the volume turned up, we encourage riders to tune out the rest of their day for a full 45-minutes in order to really connect to the music and foster a mind + body connection.  Compass is a supportive community that embraces each rider’s personal fitness journey.  We work together to build each other up to find the best versions of ourselves both in and out of the saddle.  We are thrilled to share our journey with you and hope to see you on the bike!

Follow Compass Cycle

Compass Cycle commits to providing our guests a fitness experience like no other and the opportunity to become part of a community that is without boundaries and committed to possibility.

As a pack we will climb, sprint and jog towards each hill and curve along the road. The hard work we do in the studio will empower us to find direction, both on the bike and off – in our relationships, in our professions and in our lives.

You will experience a fun, high energy cycling class in a safe and clean environment with no distractions. The incorporation of hand weights will ensure you are getting a total body workout each and every class. Every time you step into the studio, YOU are choosing to take a step in the right direction.
