How do I book in?
To book, all you need to do is:
a) Create an account.
b) Click on 'buy' to purchase class credits and view our pricing options.
c) Click on 'book' or 'schedule' to select the studio, class, and time you want to attend.
d) Select your spot and book in. (Please note that our system automatically selects a bike for you, so make sure to unselect it and choose your preferred bike.)
You will receive an email with your purchase and booking confirmation.
What time should I arrive?
Newbies must arrive at least 15-20 minutes before the class for an induction. This ensures you have enough time to check in, become familiar with the studio and set up your bike / equipment to ensure a KILLER (and safe) class with us!
All other tribe members must be checked in AT LEAST 5 minutes before the class to be allowed in. We sometimes lock the door to the studio for the duration of the class, so arriving early is important.
It’s my first time. What do I do when I arrive?
When you arrive at the studio, head to our reception desk. Our friendly team will introduce themselves, check you in and show you around our facilities.
We will give you shoes (for RIDE) and a towel, inform you of your spot number and set you up.
At this stage, please inform us if you have any medical issues or injuries we should be aware of.
*There are 2 QR codes at reception
1) Government QR code for Covid tracking.
2) For buddies who have not yet created an account.
I’ve never been to Bodhi & Ride before. Do I need to book in?
Yes. A lot of our classes get booked up quickly, so we ask that you pre-book your RIDE or Bodhi Plus (strength) class online.
I've signed up, can I just show up?
You can. However, we can't guarantee a spot will be available once you arrive.
Are spots allocated in the class or can I choose my spot upon arrival?
The spot number you select when booking into a class is the spot you will be allocated upon arrival. (When we are at limited capacity due to Covid-19 government regulations, this may change.)
Can I change my spot selection/allocation?
The only way to change your spot is to cancel out of a class and rebook into the class and select your preferred spot. If there are free bikes or mats when you arrive, our FOH team can move you upon request.
Please keep in mind that our 12 hour cancellation policy still applies. So if you're wanting to change spots within that time frame, please contact us or wait until you arrive at the studio.
How does the waitlist work?
When you add yourself to a class waitlist, you'll receive an email confirming your spot on the waitlist.
If a spot becomes available, you'll receive an email and automatically be added into the class.*
*Exceptions: If a spot becomes available with less than 3 hours to go before class start time or between the hours of 10pm and 6am, we understand that you may no longer be able to make it due to short notice or being asleep. Therefore, you'll instead receive an email to let you know a spot is available and you'll have the choice to manually book yourself into the class.
What types of memberships do you offer?
We offer monthly memberships to our Tribe, which gives you 5, 8 or 30 credits to use each month (with the option to top up at a reduced rate if required). There is also a Student Membership option with 10 credits to use per month.
In addition, we offer a Bodhi at Home membership which gives access to our on demand content (with the option to hire a bike to use at home)
If you come to Bodhi frequently, a membership is always the most economical option to workout with us. A membership will further give you access to additional membership perks (such as booking your bike ahead of time).
The buy page on our website sets out the different membership options in more detail as well as the perks that come with each membership.
Do you offer Student Memberships?
Yes we do, we have a special membership just for students, which is available on our website and in studios.
In order for you to qualify for a student membership we would need to receive a copy of your student ID (via email at email@example.com).
The offer only applies to local school, college or under-graduate students based in Melbourne, Australia.
If you are a student the following terms of your membership are slightly different due to the affordable membership option on offer to you i.e.: your Minimum Commitment Term will be higher at 6 months.
What is the process for signing up to a membership?
Once you have read through the different membership options on our website and are ready to sign up as a member you can either do so in one of our studios or buy your membership online (via our buy page).
Please make sure to read through the T&Cs beforehand as you will be bound by the terms included therein from the moment of purchasing the membership.
We will send you a copy of the T&Cs on email as well so you can keep them on file.
When will my membership terminate?
Your Membership will continue for an indefinite time unless you cancel it, which is only possible after the minimum commitment period has ended.
Please see our cancellation and minimum term FAQs below for more information on our cancellation and minimum commitment period policy.
What is the minimum term for my membership?
- The minimum term for standard memberships is 3 months.
- The minimum term for student memberships is 6 months.
If you decide to change your membership at any point in time your minimum term will start again (please refer to the FAQ on change of memberships for further details).
How do I cancel my Membership?
Upon purchasing your membership you will be committed to a 3 months minimum term, unless purchasing a student membership which will be 6 months.
After your third membership payment (or sixth payment for a student membership), you can cancel your membership at any time by filling in the membership cancellation form. Notice period applies.
Click HERE for the membership cancellation form.
Please note that our customer service team will reply to you within 48 hours of the form being filled out. If all information has been correctly received the cancellation will take effect from the next billing date taking into account a 2 weeks notice period upon receipt of the membership cancellation form.
As a further clarification, we require 14 working days notice for a membership cancellation. If your next billing date falls within these 14 days, your membership will be renewed and canceled at the one following. The 2 week notice period is required for us to be able to finalise the administration that goes into canceling your membership.
How will I be charged for my membership?
Payment for your membership is taken monthly in advance by billing the credit card saved to your account. You will need to have a valid credit card on your account to enable payment to be taken. Please make sure your card details are up to date and you have sufficient funds on your account as you are charged a $10 administration fee per transaction in case the card payment fails.
Unfortunately we cannot accept bank direct debit or bank deposits for our memberships. Please be aware that once payment has been taken, we will be unable to issue refunds to you.
Can I start my membership at a date in the future?
Yes you can. You can select a start date of the membership in the future. Just be aware that you will only be able to book in classes from that date onwards and upon receipt of the membership payment.
When can I start using my membership credits?
This depends on whether you have selected to start your membership from the date you sign up or at a date in the future. The process is as follows: upon signing up for a membership with us, the first membership payment is taken from your credit card at the date you selected the membership to start.
When your payment has successfully been made, your allocated credits (depending on which membership you have selected) are automatically put into your account.
You will then be able to book your classes with us 2 weeks in advance (instead of the week advance bookings Class Packs get). This process repeats itself each month so your credits refill each month upon payment being processed.
What is a membership cycle and how are my credits accounted for on a monthly basis?
Membership credits from a current billing cycle cannot be used for a booking outside of the current cycle.
If you choose to book ahead into classes outside of your current billing cycle, the membership credits would be deducted from that future cycle. For example, if your current cycle runs from 1 November until 1 December and on the 18th of November you book into a class for December 5, a membership credit would be deducted from the billing cycle that runs between 1 December to 1 January.
What if I don't have enough credits for a month or my credits are running low?
If it turns out you don't have enough credits in a certain month, we offer you top up credits at a discounted rate as you are on a membership with us.
Can I take unused credits to the next month?
Membership credits can only be used for that specific billing cycle (please refer to the FAQ above regarding Membership cycles.
When do my membership credits expire?
Membership credits must be used for classes taking place within your current billing period/month and cannot be rolled over to future billing periods/months.
If you have purchased an exclusive discounted membership top-up credit, the expiry date will be 30 days from purchase of that top up credits.
Can I transfer credits to a friend who is also a member or to another account of mine?
Membership credits are personal to you and cannot be transferred between accounts or to anyone else.
What is your membership pausing policy?
We understand that you might want to pause your membership when you go on holiday, have a work trip or are working through an injury. We therefore allow you to pause your membership for one month at a time, in line with your billing period.
The following conditions apply to our pause policy: a) there is a limit of up to 4 pauses per rolling 12 month period, b) you will not be able to pause your membership for two consecutive months, c) when you pause your membership, you will not be billed for that month and will not have credits dropped into your account, d) you can still take classes by purchasing discounted top-up credits, e) pausing a membership during the Minimum Term (please refer to FAQ [X]) will result in extension of the Minimum Term by the period the membership has been paused, and f) you will not be able to cancel your membership once you have paused it.
In order to pause your membership, you will need to:
- submit the membership pause request form HERE.
- once submitted, we will respond to your pause request within 2 working days to ensure you know we have received it.
- we will then action your pause request within 2 working days upon the complete form being submitted and us confirming receipt of your pause request; and

Unfortunately we are not able to pause at Home Memberships because of system limitations.
Please note that once a membership is paused, we are unable to make any changes to its pause length or unpause it.
I'm on a Membership and have fallen pregnant or injured myself and cannot attend classes for an extended period of time.
Upon receiving a doctors certificate, we may, at our discretion, process a longer pause for your membership once the minimum commitment period has ended.
How many spaces can I book per class using my membership?

Early Access Booking only applies to Membership purchased after November 10, 2023.
Will I get free towels with my membership?
We are trying to reduce our carbon footprint and washing towels uses a lot of energy and fresh water.
We have therefore decided we will no longer include complimentary sweat towels in our new memberships and encourage you to bring your own. Sweat towels will continue to be available for hire at the studio at a small cost of $1, and shower towels are $2 each for hire.
New Memberships refer to Memberships purchased after 10 November 2023.

Your membership allows you to book into classes across all concepts and all studios.

However if you would like to change this membership to a current membership which suits you more this is possible.

I see that some classes have different names/themes, what is this about?
We like to keep things interesting, and theme RIDES are just one of the many ways to keep our RIDERS challenged and always excited to clip in. Each month, we add a special theme to a selection of our RIDES across our three studios. It could be anything from a Beyonce-themed RIDE, Queens of pop, RnB vibes, Old School Rock, EDM rides or Rap vs Reggaeton or a Justin Bieber RIDE. Got a brilliant idea for a theme RIDE? Reach out to us on Instagram (our DMs are ALWAYS open) or email email@example.com
Is there someone to look after my dog while I work out?
We absolutely love it when our tribe bring in a furry friend! We are happy to take care of your dog while you're at the studio but please make sure to let us know in advance so we can ensure there is a team member available to do so.
