But the winter weather can be a deterrent for many when it comes to hopping
I love getting emails like this… Hi John~ How have you been? It’s probably been close to 2 or more years since I’ve touched base with you. I promised I’d let you know how my Total Rider In Motion Cycling Studio is doing as the years went by. Here’s my update: After two years of just getting by we, like many people, say “you learn from what doesn’t work”. We
I love discovering smart, talented people who are passionate about Indoor Cycling and Lena Hershey is someone I feel you should get to know. Lena is a brand new (she started in May) Spinning® Instructor at the Carlisle Family YMCA in Carlisle, PA.

If so I’d like to talk to you and (if it makes sense) interview you for the Podcast… After sorting through over 300 responses (thanks to you all!) I followed
“YOU TAUGHT ME TO USE SPOTIFY!” “I think she’s talking to you John” was the response from Mad Dogg’s Tony Berlant, as we both watched a very excite women running toward us. Tony and I were enjoying an adult beverage during the reception at last fall’s MindBodyFitPro convention in LA when the women confirmed who exactly she was addressing: YOU (she’s now pointing at me) John Macgowan… YOU TAUGHT ME TO USE
ICI/PRO member John Appleby purchased a new VeloVie Vitesse 400 through our PRO/Purchase program. John emailed me today… John: Here is the photo of the bike. I like it more every day.

For the fame and fortune, of course!! That’s actually not a joke. I never dreamed anything would happen beyond maybe getting a free year of access to ICI/PRO, which is honestly the only reason I was even tempted to enter.
