Spin on a bus, outside, or at a brewery.

Boston is a notoriously awesome city for fitness junkies, especially in the summertime. When the weather gets warm, there are fun events—Outdoor bootcamp! Rooftop yoga! Free fitness series! Island workout festivals!—practically everywhere you look.

Heavy equipment, however, means cycling often gets left out of the event scene. (They are called stationary bikes, after all). If cycling is your workout of choice, you’ve typically got two options: Hop on a bike and go for a ride, or get your butt in the saddle at your usual gym or studio.

This month, though, you’ve got options. We found three cycling events that’ll break up your workout routine:

Sip and Spin at Short Path Distillery: 

Move over, brewery yoga. Tempo Cycling, which is known for its pop-up cycling classes, is bringing the bikes to Everett’s Short Path Distillery. A $35 ticket gets you a 45-minute cycling class, a tour of the facility, a tasting, and one specialty cocktail. The event will take place June 5.

$35, 12 p.m., 6/5. 71 Kelvin St. Unit 2, Everett,

Spin and Shop:

Bike Bus—the infamous cycling studio on wheels—is teaming up with Whole Foods to make your grocery shopping a lot more fun. On June 11 in Newtonville and June 18 in Newton, you can join the company for a mobile Spin class, followed by shopping at Whole Foods. Rumor has it there will even be a “blender bike” on hand for making post-class smoothies.

$20, 8:45 a.m. and 9:45 a.m., 6/11 and 6/18. 647 Washington St., Newtonville (6/11) and 916 Walnut St., Newton (6/18),

Outdoor Ride in Dewey Square: 

The Handlebar is celebrating the solstice on June 20 with a free, hour-long outdoor cycling class in Dewey Square. The class will be led by two instructors and accompanied by live DJs. Registration opens soon.

Free, 6 p.m., 6/20. Dewey Square, Boston,
