Flywheel’s website says:

“This is the workout for you.

Whoever you are.

The workout that offers a chance to achieve something more.

The step up onto a custom engineered bike.

And ride as hard as you dare.

The Flywheel indoor cycling ride includes climbs and descents, while working arms with weighted bars. It’s an amazing escape that challenges your body and relaxes your mind.

Our music playlists are choreographed to each class and make the time fly.

Our instructors lead the way, suggesting target resistance levels and RPM’s to strive for. But YOU decide exactly what’s right for you by controlling the technology on your bike. And your performance stats are made available in your private account on our website.

You’ll ride just once before you understand completely, “Why Flywheel?”

Could be the biggest thing after the proposed 11th Street Bridge elevated park.

From a press release:

The nonprofit Arts Coalition for the Dupont Underground (ACDU) announced today that it has signed a 66-month lease with the District of Columbia’s Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) for an abandoned 75,000-s.f. former trolley station below the streets of Dupont Circle, in the District’s Northwest quadrant.

The ACDU also announced today the launch of a crowdfunding campaign for the project on the Fundable platform: fundable.com/dupont-underground.

Founded by architect Julian Hunt, co-principal of Hunt Laudi Studio, a D.C.-based architecture and urban design firm, the ACDU has been negotiating with DMPED for the lease since the group won a 2010 RFP from the city to redevelop the space. Hunt, who moved to the District in the mid-1990s and has been working to reopen the platforms and tunnels for more than a decade, was inspired by the years he spent living and working in Barcelona, where architects and artists have played a crucial role in shaping that city’s physical and cultural growth.

“I didn’t find the same kind of energy and conversation going on here,” said Hunt. “My first effort was to launch a critical journal, but when I discovered the old trolley station, I realized that I had stumbled onto a compelling, vital place to make something happen right below one of the District’s iconic public spaces.” (more…)

Thanks to a reader for sending:

“Looks like Black and Orange is officially no more. I’ll definitely miss this place.

On the plus side, the new Surfside around the corner is opening in January. On Saturday I talked to the owner who was checking out the building. He said that all of the fixtures are done and they’ll be opening “soon in the new year.”
