The handle bar south boston Studio

South Boston

141 Dorchester Ave
Boston, MA 02127
(617) 451-1270


The studio is located in the Macallen Building in South Boston, directly across the street from the Broadway stop on the MBTA Red Line. We're the corner unit, at the intersection of Dorchester Avenue and West 4th St. Broadway Station is also a stop for the 9, 11, and 47 bus routes. Parking is limited but there are a few 2 hour spots in front of the studio. If you don't mind a short walk, there is ample parking further down Dorchester Avenue.


The space consists of a large studio housing 35 bikes, a reception area for check-in, and 2 restrooms. We have a cubby for every rider, but do not have lockers. There will always be a Handle Bar employee at the front desk during class, so the bags will not be left unattended. We have limited storage space at the studio so we ask that you pack lightly!

Job experience: I’ve worked a number of jobs all over the map - one where I managed the schedules of some of Boston’s top hairstylists, and another where I was surrounded by the city’s best donuts. The former taught me to manage every professional interaction and situation with poise, and the latter taught me that positivity rules above all else.

Why I ride: I ride because it’s one guaranteed part of my day that is meant for me and only me. No distractions, no wandering thoughts. Just hard earned sweat and determination.

History with HB: I’ve worked with The HB since the winter of 2014, when I first started training to be an instructor. I taught my first class in Fenway in April 2014, and the rest is history. :)

Areas of interest: I love all things visual: graphic design, photography, video. I love their power to tell a story and create a feeling. I’ve found myself falling into this marketing and storytelling space in all of my past job experiences.

Stop by and meet the rest of the team!
