Winter Indoor Cycling Classes at HPC

For most of us, the winter temps here in the Washington metro area are just too cold for cycling. So let’s take it indoors with professionally coached and computerized indoor training classes at HPC!

What & Who?

Hefler Performance Coaching, well known for coaching expertise that has created success for endurance athletes of all ages and abilities, has agreed to conduct a special winter series of their very popular indoor cycling classes using the CompuTrainer MultiRider just for members of Bike Me DC!

The CompuTrainer MultiRider system provides structured and challenging workouts and is made even more fun by riding with a group of your friends while receiving valuable tips from the experienced HPC coaches!


Whether you are a competitive racer or a weekend warrior, HPC’s CompuTrainer classes will help you attain and surpass your fitness goals. The system gives you instantaneous updates on power output (watts), speed, gradient, distance, and other critical metrics that allow for scientific accuracy in making sure you get the best workout possible! Not only that, but the social atmosphere of the classes can make even the most trainer-weary riders look forward to indoor workouts.


All you have to do is sign up and bring your bike and cycling gear, water , and definitely a towel! Then, just plug your bike in and prepare for a great workout and learning experience as one of HPC’s experienced coaches guide you through the session.


Eight consecutive weekly sessions have been scheduled beginning Sunday, January 5, 2014 and ending Sunday, February 23, 2014. (HPC requires a minimum of 12 signups to conduct a session).  Each session will last approximately 2 hours and includes setup, workout, cool down and stretching.


Cost for each session is $26.00. This includes the $25.00 session fee plus a $1.00 online processing fee charged by PayPal. Payment must be made at the time you make your RSVP.

Cancelations & Refunds

Refunds are available if your RSVP is changed before noon on Friday of that week’s session or if a session is canceled because the minimum enrollment has not been met.

What to Bring?

- Your bike
- Cycling clothing & shoes
- Water bottle
- Towel

Note: Depending on your bike, a different skewer might be required for your rear wheel. Skewers are available at HPC at a cost of $15.00.


As always, feel free to contact me via MeetUp email should you questions. I also encourage you to check out HPC web site for more information about them and the CompuTrainer system.

      Glad you enjoyed the class. Green Lizard is a great bicycle shop, however, in the interest of attributing credit where it's rightfully due, HPC (Hefler Performance Coaching) are the ones actually providing the equipment and conducting the training sessions. They just happen to be in the same building as Green Lizard.

      Hats off to HPC as well! There are kinks to work out with such a large group of cycling enthusiasts! The aim of the training classes has such great potential! I much prefer this over any gym spinning class and this is coming from a previous cycling instructor. The owner Dave from Green Lizard has put together and made the connections to make this a great bike shop! My Ruby and I are happy with the $20 cleaning as well.

    The training session was great and very challenging. I also loved seeing familiar faces as well. My only complaint is that the setup took so long, this being the second class. Hopefully, we can get the setup down to 30 minutes or less in the coming classes.

      The fact that most of us were NOT on the same training station used last week, combined with a few "new" members, increased setup time significantly.

    Once the endorphins kick in and the nausea clears you'll get an incredible feeling of accomplishment. A job well done.

      I'm suspicious it went from 24 paid spots to 18 overnight because of the dues deadline expiration.

      Well, John, unless you tell me explicitly that my registration and payment has been rejected and I shouldn't attend then I plan to make the trek out to Herdon for the class. Thanks.

    John, I have a conflict that just developed, and I won't be able to attend. I'll need a refund on this one. Thx.
