If you’ve never tried Hydrorider in-water cycling bikes at the Sports Core Pool, October is the perfect time to drop in or sign up for a new class.
The bikes are user-friendly and suitable for all skill levels. In general, water exercise allows participants to train at a higher intensity rate and recover at a faster rate due to the cooling effect of the water.
Drop-in spaces are currently available in a class meeting Mondays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. through Oct. 16. Participants are asked to show up 10 minutes prior to the start of class to set up a bike. Class time is 30 minutes in the water.
The price per class is $8 for Ocean Pines swim members, $10 for Ocean Pines residents and $12 for non-residents.
Spaces are also available in two new class sessions set to begin on Oct. 28. The classes will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays at 8 a.m. or 10 a.m. and will continue through Dec. 11. Classes will not be held on Nov. 25 or Nov. 27 due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
The price for either 12-class session is $85 for Ocean Pines swim members, $90 for Ocean Pines residents and $95 for non-residents. Drop ins will be available as space allows.
Water shoes must be worn for classes using the water bikes and may be purchased at the Sports Core Pool.
