As if SoulCyle weren't enough of a cult already, the New York City cycling class has a handsome new poster child in actor Jake Gyllenhaal. His regular appearance has reportedly caused total gridlock at the Union Square studio's 10:30 a.m. classes, as well as the ones immediately before them. According to the Daily News, Gyllenhaal spins with his hair in a man bun, knows the songs, and is invited to take over the instructor's bike — the seal of SoulCycle indoctrination. He goes with his girlfriend, Sports Illustrated model Emily DiDonato, whom he reportedly met in a SoulCycle class. His followers declined to tell the Daily News their names for fear of retribution from cycling powers.
