SoulCycle cofounder Julie Rice had a short ride at WeWork.
Rice created SoulCycle in the spirit of building a community of like-minded, fitness-conscious people, and was on board at WeWork to bring innovation, also in the spirit of community.
WeWork, now called The We Company, confirmed Thursday that Rice has departed the company. No explanation was provided. She was listed as a partner in the business and it’s not clear if she still has some interest in it.
Rice was involved in bringing new ideas to WeWork and ways to adapt the WeWork experience, including helping create the WeMrkt retail concept, which sells products by WeWork members and gives them exposure. Rice served as co-chief executive officer at SoulCycle from 2006 to 2015 before joining WeWork in November 2017.
