The newly-opened indoor cycling center off Clark Road, Off The Handle Cycling Studio, opened for business with more in mind than generic evening classes throughout the week. The fitness center offers interactive classes such as Sip and Spin on the weekends, followed by mimosas and a mixer to get to know fellow members. OTH also often collaborates with neighboring local businesses, with pop-up Spin and Flow classes, which include 30 minutes of spin followed by 30 minutes of yin yoga with HotYoga4UYou, as well as Hip Hop Happy Hour Rides, which include high-energy pedaling classes to classic hip hop tracks, followed by a free drink at the new Oak & Stone with the team.

OTH now invites the community to join in a philanthropic spin session for the company’s nonprofit partner, United Way Suncoast. The upcoming Charity Ride welcomes all fitness levels and riders for a 45-minute spin class, with all proceeds benefiting the nonprofit. Those in attendance will enjoy refreshments, giveaways and raffle prizes from various local businesses, including Crop Juice, Hey Honey Skin Care and many others. “The health of our community is central to our mission at OTH,” says Bianca Ventura, co-owner of Off the Handle. She then mentions OTH will be incorporating more benefit events like these as frequently as possible moving forward. 

"Giving back to the local community is something that's always been super important to both myself and [business partner] Aimee Howe,” shares Ventura. “Aimee regularly volunteers her time teaching yoga to inmates at the St. Pete jail and I always get friends together to volunteer, whether it's at an animal shelter or a local Ronald McDonald House. Partnering with United Way just seemed like the perfect thing to do, given their stellar reputation nationwide and knowing that the work they do changes lives.” Ventura and Howe hope partnering with United Way Suncoast will be a proactive and fun pathway to invest back into the well-being of Sarasotan families and an overall healthy community. 

The Charity Ride takes place at 11am on September 14, with the price of $25 admission per bike. The event is open to anyone interested in attending, with sign ups available via the website offthehandlesrq.com, or calling the studio at 941-923-5100 to reserve a spot. The studio can accommodate up to 25 people, and if interest exceeds capacity, an additional ride may be added.
