We are on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Huron-Wendat.
Pedal Works Café & Studios is a new and innovative space to the neighbourhood focused on bringing community together. Situated perfectly between the west end and downtown Kingston, Pedal Works Café & Studios offers a unique and special opportunity for people to connect and discover something new.
Come take a beautiful Recovery Energy Zone Spinning® class or one of our restorative or gentle yoga classes. Scheduling hard interval or strength classes are important for overload, & adaptations but scheduling in a recovery class is just as important for results.
Our goal is to provide a safer and more welcoming space that is focused on supporting overall well-being.
In addition to the offerings of the café and studios, we offer space to showcase local artists and sell their beautiful and unique work! We also have a special art corner if you want to come paint, colour in our adult colouring books or add to a progressive canvas.
Need rental space for adult birthday parties, wedding receptions, meetings, workshops or classes? We offer great rates and give members 15% off when they reserve 2 hours or more.

I started cycling when I was 17 and bought my first road bike with money I won for winning an essay contest held by Harvard University. The money was supposed to be used for tuition, but I felt I needed the bike more. In 1997 I heard about the Spinning® Program and I decided to get certified and join the now 230,000 certified Spinning® instructors in the world. I was already a group fitness instructor and personal trainer, so I thought Spinning® would be a great way to introduce cycling to my students/clients.
My dreams of being a Master Instructor (MI) began in 2006 when I made it to my first international Spinning® Conference. I was so inspired and motivated at the conference, that I set a goal to become a Spinning® Master Instructor. After numerous courses & certifications, years of experience and a competitive selection process I became a MI in 2011 and was chosen to join an elite group of 140 Master Instructors in the world.
In my decades of leading Spinning® classes I discovered that being on the bike is more than how many calories you burn, or how many watts you generate. The class is about a feeling, a connection, an ability to tap into energy and shift thought. It is seeing a student have this same ah-ha moment that drives my love of teaching and it inspired the goal of opening Pedal Works Café & Studios. I want everyone to experience what the original Spinning® Program is and gain a deeper understanding of cycling and the power that lies within. That long flat road, complimented by beautiful music and good coaching... there's nothing like it!
