Minnesota is about to get its first permanent location for the indoor fitness phenomenon SoulCycle.
Rumors of the New York-based indoor cycling craze opening a Minnesota spot are well established, and MSP Magazine in January confirmed that the company is indeed planning on making its Twin Cities debut this year.
The location SoulCycle's first Minnesota venue can now be confirmed, with signs popping up on the windows of a new unit on Market Street at 50th and France in Edina this week.
It is planning to open by this fall, just in time for what we presume is the peak time for indoor exercise in Minnesota.
SoulCycle has grown into a national brand since launching in 2006, offering instructor-led, high energy 45-minute exercise bike workouts.
It has a presence in 23 U.S. cities, with Edina set to become the 24th.
It's not cheap though, with a single class typically running you $30-35 depending on which city you're in, though the price reduces slightly the more classes you buy.
It's one of the first companies to move into the new commercial units created by the redevelopment of Market Street.
The project, which started in January 2018, is now coming to an end, bringing with it the expansion of the parking ramp on the north side of Market Street, with SoulCycle moving in at the ground level.
On the south side, the Nolan Mains building comprises 100 new apartments and street-level retail, set around new public walkways and plazas that connect Market Street to 50th Street.
