We take five minutes to get to know the founder of Studio XXVI, Charlie Bird, a little better!
Describe your business in a nutshell
Studio XXVI is Bath’s Own Boutique Indoor Cycling Studio.
Why do you do what you do?
In a previous life, working in an office for 12-14 hours a day, fitness was my only way to unwind… so I wanted to bring that same experience to Bathonians
After work you can find me…
On Spotify, searching for some good music ahead of the next class!
If I had an extra hour in the day I would…
Probably jump on my fixie and ride along one of the canal or railway paths around Bath (weather permitting!!)
Your go-to dinner destination in Bath…
Love the Rustico Italiano between the Circus and the Royal Crescent.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Hmmm, how about superhuman speed? Ideally, that makes me faster on the bike too!!
You’ve got 24 hours to spend in Bath, what’s on your hit list?
Definitely a walk along the Skyline if the weather’s nice… If it’s raining, then I’d book into a spin class (obviously!!)
Your go-to song…
That’s impossible!! But at the moment, either AC/DC – Shoot to Thrill or Ariana Grande – Bad Idea
Insider tip for visiting Bath?
Other than Studio XXVI? I’d say head to Colonna & Small’s for some incredible coffee.
