On MacArthur, we set up into a rotating paceline and maintain what Gonzalo refers to as a “spirited” pace (20 MPH average, up to 30 MPH on MacArthur). We regroup at the top of Old Anglers (after going down into the park) and Brickyard, as well as at the bottom of Persimmon Tree. Depending on the group that shows up, we may break into A and B rides. The B ride excludes the climb up Brickyard and maintains a slightly slower pace (15-17 MPH)."

[solidcore] first class [free] at Adams Morgan and Cathedral Commons studios!
Saturday, April 29, 2017 - 2:15pm

[solidcore] is unlike any workout you’ve ever done before. It’s a high-intensity, low-impact 50-minute session that is done as slow as possible to lengthen and tone your body. Don’t let the slow fool you… it’s hard. You can expect a full–body session using controlled movements on a resistance-based machine to work your slow and fast-twitch muscles to the point of failure. The body can then work to repair the ripped muscles, which is when they become leaner, longer and stronger – creating noticeable tone and definition in the body.
