Let’s Explore! Checking out our new ‘hood
Hooray!!! Today is the day! If you haven’t noticed on social media, we’re pretty f**king excited. On this day, September 16th, 2019, we open our fifth location of Rocycle. Today, we throw open the doors at our brand spanking new studio.
Welcome to ROCYCLE OOST!
And we must admit, we absolutely adore our new neighbourhood. The energy is great, the people are great, the vibes are great. We are as happy as can be. One of the things we like best about expanding and growing is getting to know new areas of our cities, to build new, incredible communities.
Oost is no different. This vibrant, cool area is absolutely brimming with great healthy hotspots to visit, so we are going to introduce you to a few of our favourites. We can’t wait to see you in the neighbourhood and in the studio! Let’s get exploring.
The Cold Pressed Juicery
Alright, alright this one was way too easy. Just like in our very first location in Centrum, Oost is lucky enough to play host to our very own TCPJ. Refuel after a killer 45 minutes with one of their new protein-packed performance smoothies. You’ll feel ready for another ride in no time.
Vegan Junk Food Bar
Vegan junk food? We promise it’s not an oxymoron. This drool-worthy restaurant takes comfort food classics and transforms them into plant-based treats that still have some nutritional value. Sounds like a win-win to us!
Don’t get us wrong, we can never get enough of our party on a bike, but it’s good for the body to switch things up with a bit of cross training. When we’re not in the saddle, we like to get our frustration out with a few jabs and crosses at Underground. The vibe is great, and the workout is even better.
Speaking of cross training, it’s also important to stretch out those muscles you’re building with all those pyramids and tap-backs. To keep things flowing and limber, we highly recommend booking into a class at the gorgeous yoga studio, Delight.
De Glutenvrije Winkel
These days, so many of us have developed allergies and intolerances. Rather than feeling left out, why not join the fun (just make sure all the treats are gluten-free!)? That’s where De Glutenvrije Winkel comes in. This shop sells everything you could ever imagine in a gluten-free version.
Beter en Leuk
It can be tough to find healthy options on the go, but thank goodness Beter en Leuk is nearby. These guys have taken the guesswork out of healthy eating for us, as they have an incredible selection of healthy sweets, fresh soups and tasty salads.
Unlike many of the other glorious farmer’s markets in Amsterdam, the Dappermarkt is open almost every day of the week (except Sunday, of course). Pop by here after your next ride to stock up on fresh produce so you can cook a healthy, delicious meal at home.
