Hatch Detroit is pleased to announce the 2015 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest winner, Live Cycle Delight, will open its new cycle studio this fall located at 8019 Agnes St. in Detroit’s West Village. Live Cycle Delight will be the fourth contest alumni to locate in the West Village area and the first contemporary indoor cycling studio in Detroit.
“Live Cycle Delight will be the contest’s 15th business to establish a brick and mortar location in metro Detroit,” said Vittoria Katanski, executive director, Hatch Detroit. “From bakers to brewers to a kayak rental company, and now the first cycling studio in Detroit, this contest brings together a unique group of business entrepreneurs who will continue to make Detroit’s independent retail standout.”
Live Cycle Delight will offer three types of indoor cycling classes ranging from 30- to 90-minute sessions with varying intensity levels. TRX conditioning classes will be scheduled daily between cycling classes to complement the cardio-intensive cycling. These conditioning classes target the body’s core strength and flexibility to improve balance and reduce injury risk during bike rides. Additionally, the company encourages outdoor bike rides by offering meet-up rides as an introduction to outdoor cycling safety, promoting cycling hubs throughout Detroit and continuing to expose Detroit as a bike friendly community.
Live Cycle Delight will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and plans to offer monthly memberships as well as student and corporate packages. For those thinking about testing the pedals, single spin classes and TRX Drop-in Delight classes will be offered as well.
The company will also feature a state-of-the-art Bike Lounge encouraging outdoor riders to make Live Cycle Delight a start, stop or in-between ride destination. The Bike Lounge will have a tire pump station, lockers, Wi-Fi and water provided free for all members and class participants. Part of Live Cycle Delight’s Bike Lounge, will be a hydrate station filled with cold-pressed juices and healthy snacks available for purchase.
Visionary entrepreneurs looking to follow the tracks of Live Cycle Delight have until July 15 to submit applications for the2016 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest, presented by Opportunity Detroit, for a chance to win $50,000 from Comerica Bank, and more than $200,000 in pro bono services including a $25,000 branding and design package from GTB (formally Team Detroit), a 30-second social media advertisement from MCCI, legal services from Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn and a package of accounting, IT, public relations support, and counsel from Hatch Detroit and its partners.
