In a disgusting display of overexertion, Mother Jones’ Ben Dreyfuss and Vox.com’s Alex Abad-Santos boast about their cycling. It doesn’t appear to matter who Bart is. The North Carolinian somehow injected himself into the conversation. He nonetheless poses an interesting question. 

DREYFUSS: I did two SoulCycles today. I’m basically a Spartan.

ABAD-SANTOS: Ben, did you know that they don’t let you do more than three in one day?

ABAD-SANTOS: I had signed up for three in one day, and one of the front desk employees was like — “That’s the limit, you know?”

DREYFUSS: Really?? I did two yesterday. They won’t let you do four in a day? I want to try it now.

BART: What if you did three at one location, and then went somewhere else to do additional sessions?

DREYFUSS: That wouldn’t work. it’s all booked through the central app.

ABAD-SANTOS: I don’t think 4 is legal. You might have to sign in under a different name.

ABAD-SANTOS: Ben, have you taken Charlee? I heard she is the best.

DREYFUSS: No, I haven’t! My favorite is Kelly. I’m going to look Charlee up.
