H Street NE had its very own Inauguration Day when the street’s only cycling studio opened its doors in January 2018. And if you haven’t checked it out already, it’s time you did. Say hello to Election Cycle, your new go-to sweat spot.
Election Cycle welcomes elephants in the room, donkeys on bikes, and porcupines to boot (yes, that’s a symbol of the Libertarian party). And DC’s fitness community is all over supporting this kind of party. Their beat-inspired classes combined with HIIT-style workouts will leave you as breathless as a 15-hour filibuster.
Class offerings vary from Super Tuesday (theme ride), Midterm (a midday, 45-minute blast), or the Political Party (like it’s 1776). If you need an extra pump, free weights are available and incorporated into many classes. Here’s to the right to bare arms.
Whole Foods, Cava, and now your very own cycle studio — H Street, it’s clear we could all learn something from your lobbying techniques. Speaking of techniques that produce results, Election Cycle caps their classes at 25 people — so you know you’ll receive some TLC from the instructor. You’ll get personal attention, you’ll get sweaty, and then you’ll swoon for the studio-provided eucalyptus towel at the end of your ride. Don’t worry — the towels and luxury amenities are not paid for by your tax dollars.
The H Street area and the DC fitness community is proud to have another locally-owned fitness studio in the city! Election Cycle, may your studio be full of all of the parties and may your jokes always be politically punny.
