Best indoor cycling gyms in the Bay Area

I have a crazy sensitive downstairs neighbor and I can't use a trainer inside. The winter season is here and I was wondering if there is any good indoor cycling gym in the bay area. I tried to search for it, but couldn't find anything. I was hoping that there must be gyms where you can take your bike, put it on a trainer and do your thing - but I found nothing.

Yeah. I don't have an answer for you, so I will also resort to saying 'Outside'. Bay area winters aren't bad at all. Warm/dry cycling clothing can make rides very comfortable and fun and can cost you much less than what a gym would cost you... And it's so much easier to get an effective workout outdoors...

I know of a couple places:
One is CRUfit in Oakland. I've been there and it's quite new and very nice. You can pay by the session.
The other is in the Mission and might be more convenient for you. It's called the 17th Street Athletic Club (17thstreetathleticclub.com). It's new and the grand opening is 11/5, 4-7pm.

I know that I'm very lucky with the weather. Although I have motivational problems if I'm doing intervals 3 times a week in addition to my commute in the rain. Who wants to get out 3 times a week at 6am in the pouring rain in the dark? It's nice to have options.

Thanks! I will definitely check out the later one!

Just to answer partly my question I found M2 Revolution Cycling with CycleOps and Shift-SF with trainers.

Heheh I know, sorry. I was mostly talking for myself. I have tried gyms so many times. I just can't stay in there more than 30 minutes

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Five Rings Cycling Center / Dmitry Badeka in San Mateo. Been going there for years.

What is he or she sensitive about? Is it vibration, noise, they have sixth sense you are on a trainer?
