Hey Brookland and Eckington residents, as of next week, there will be a new indoor cycling option right in your 'hood. After teaching at Results gym, cycling instructor Leticia Long is opening her own studio on January 15. At the high-tech Wired Cycling, you'll be able to monitor RPM, heart rate, distance, speed, and watts on FreeMotion bikes. And as of January 20, real-time cycling data will be projected on two giant monitors situated on the walls of the studio. Hence, the "Wired" portion of the name. Classes are available for beginners through advanced riders, and there will be classes for senior citizens too.
Want to try it out? Your first class as a newbie is free, and then drop-in rates are $15 per class. There are also monthly, quarterly, and annual membership plans, with a monthly fee of $109, or a ten-class series for $124. For a special opening offer, Wired Cycling is offering a huge discount of 50% off for police and educators (K-12) who live in Ward 5E.
