Years ago, i loved spinning; i took lots of classes. there was one teacher who took the time to make it about the moment. she covered the walls in black paper and put a candle on the floor. it was the only time i truly felt in the moment. those classes got me through some of the most difficult times of my life. when that teacher retired and my husband got into triathlon, so did i. i loved it too. so much we decided to open swim bike run of ky, the state’s only multisport training and retail center. we have grown over the past three years, but in spite of our success. i personally felt something was missing for me. i loved triathlons and the athletes i have met over the years at the center; from the people doing their first triathlon to the amazing ironman athletes. i used our indoor cycling computrainer where you use your own bike to ride courses from all over the world. it helped me become a better road cyclist. i used all the great gear we had, but i missed the focus and the zen feel from those spinning class from the past. i also realized that sbr of ky needed to help more people, and to reach out to people who didn’t ride a road bike. there had to be a starting point to inspire people to try multisport or just inspire them to move for their health.
