Need to burn off that overindulgent dinner from last night? Have no fear, CycleBar is here! Burn a ton of calories (while having a blast) at the Monterey Peninsula’s newest addition to the fitness scene.

Each 50 minute ride is packed with bumping beats, high tech monitors, super smooth stationary bikes and a high energy instructor there to encourage you along the way. Drop-in rates are $25. Reserve your bike here.


Take advantage of Chamisal’s premier health club and championship tennis courts on your next getaway.
