Fuel Cycling started with a vision to help

That’s exactly how Fuel Cycling was born.
Each of our instructors brings their unique approach to cycling into every class, leading to rides you can’t get anywhere

We are better together.

helping, and motivating you through your rides to make sure you have the best experience.
REMIX QUEEN! I love a good beat drop and finding new remixes for old favorites. I grew up singing along to 2000s jams, and love throwing them into my rides.
Pre Ride, I load up on at least 20oz of water, post ride I love a big smoothie!
Playlisting is another full time job. Every song in my ride is hand-picked and placed in my ride for a reason. I want my playlists to take riders on a journey, so listening to music and spending time crafting just the right vibe is important.
My bike is my instrument and I am grateful I get to play it.
A mix – I love dance, hip-hop (especially 90s), rap, EDM, reggaeton. I like to keep my riders on their toes. There’s not one type of music you’ll always hear in my classes. I build each ride depending on my mood and what I want riders to get out of the beat, lyrics, or mood of the song.
A little red lipstick and eyeliner turns on my spicy personality. I feel empowered and ready to teach my rides. I like to get to the studio early, so I have time to get in the right mindset for class.
Clipping in allows me to eat like I’m 28 years old and maintain the fitness of someone much younger than most women my age. It also gives me a much healthier brain with at least an ounce more patience than I would have without the exercise.
Most of my music is SFW but there’s no denying talents like Eminem and sometimes I’m just in the mood. Solid beats are important, and I look for a variety of music that can create a feeling.
Dinner at home and enjoying being with my husband and dogs in our very comfortable living room. Get off my lawn.
– Coffee at captain stoker in Monterey
– Poke and Korean food from Marina
– Boozy Milkshakes from Sur in Carmel
– GIANT Cake from Rosine’s in Downtown Monterey
I like to lift heavy stuff
I like to mix it up with new and classic music -think Red Hot Chili Peppers, Billie Eilish, and Jay Z tied with a remix bow.
All the beautiful places to hike! There is so much variety where we live here – a hike for everyone, at every level, and in all types of scenery.
I love Hip-Hop both new and old. I like to play music that makes you smile and dance. I love a good, strong beat that every rider can find.
Fridays are for ALL THE CARBS! You can find me at home making pizza or pasta (or ordering from my local favorites) for my mountain biking husband. We enjoy a night in, a big meal, and a glass of wine…or two!
Favorite Post or Pre Ride Snack:
Pre-Ride Snack – Banana, Lame but true or a GoMacro bar (Almond Butter Chocolate chip is my #1 flavor)
Post Ride – I love a bowl of sorts! Poke, Southwest bowl, I like a combo of flavors!
What’s your favorite Friday night routine?
Depending on how Monday-Thursday go, my Friday will go one of two ways!
1. Date night with the fam! We love food and trying new restaurants and will most likely end the night with ice cream!
2. Movie night, relaxation station and hibernation.
Skyler is a native to California— she grew up in Sonoma County, got her BA in Political Science down at UC Santa Barbara, and then relocated to Monterey to pursue her MA degree in Nonproliferation and Terrorism studies, which she completed last year. Sky loves all forms of sport and exercise— she grew up playing competitive basketball and has a black belt in Taekwondo, Sky loves to read, watch movies, play with her doggo Chili, and adventure with her partner and friends.
What is your reason for clipping in?
THOSE ENDORPHINS!! Nothing feels better than detaching for those 45 minutes to focus on vibing with the music and sweating it out! The community and friends make it even better 🙂
I love Soul and R&B, so you’ll almost always find those kinds of songs in the mix. I’m all about music that makes you feel good and want to dance!
Most definitely will find me on the sofa watching a movie with my doggo, boyfriend, and a massive plate of warm Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies in front of me. Definitely a homebody and love my nights in!
