Alyssa is an indoor cycling enthusiast with a passion for an active and adventurous lifestyle. She started riding in 2012 while visiting friends and will forever attribute those 45 minutes as the most formative in her adult years. Indoor cycling introduced her to a life that she never knew she was capable of living. It gave her the courage and empowerment to live a fulfilling, healthy and happy life both on and off the bike. Alyssa is excited for the opportunity to bring that passion to the Ryde Community.
When not on the bike, she spends her days working as a consultant for government clients and enjoys spending time with family and friends at the beach.
Her personal mantra is, "Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who come alive." -Howard Thurman
Emilee knows first-hand how intimidating it can be to break into the fitness community. She styles her classes to be accepting and encouraging for all riders, whether it's your first class or your 1000th, they are exclusively inclusive. Positive intentions and exercise have the power to change your physical and mental health, and Emilee treats each ride like 'cycle-therapy', giving riders an opportunity to focus on themselves, feel the music and enjoy the Ryde.
Emilee moved to the DC area in 2013 for a career at a non-profit organization. Without much background in exercise classes, Emilee took her first indoor cycling class and it felt like coming home. She has been hooked ever since, and her enthusiasm is contagious.

After an early running "retirement" due to injury, Katie found indoor cycling can give you the same runner's high that she missed. She is a former jazz dancer, tennis player, swimmer and distance runner (she actually performed in the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1996 Olympics). Katie will push you beyond limits and excuses to reach your personal best, without you even realizing what you have done! She loves inspiring others and helping them achieve their goals personally and professionally. Be ready to escape and focus on YOU.
Tyler is a fitness enthusiast who has tried just about every workout class in D.C., but RYDE DC was the only studio that got a second date. Ever since stepping foot in RYDE, the energy and positivity from the community got Tyler hooked on the Rhythm-based class and led her to take the podium and help others drink that RYDE Kool-Aid. If you like to shake your booty to hip hop hits and epic throwbacks, then Tyler's class is for you.
Whenever she is not teaching, you can find Tyler strolling the streets of Clarendon with either a smoothie or an iced coffee in her hand.
