ALS Spin Mix


This week’s spin mix is titled “ALS Spin Mix” for the upcoming Spin-A-Thon  next Saturday March 4th to benefit David Leys who has been fighting ALS since 2012.  The Spin-a-thon will be hosted at the Newport Athletic Club on Saturday March 4, 2017 from 7:30am to 4:30pm.  I will be teaching the 9:00am-10:30am slot.  This is a great opportunity to get in a hardcore workout while also giving back to a great cause.  If you are unable to attend or   if spinning isn’t your thing, there will also be other ways to give such as a silent auction that will be held the same day at the NAC with a bunch of great items being raffled off including vacation and spa packages.

David Leys, a fellow triathlete similar to those of you who are reading this blog, started to notice that he wasn’t able to swim and run as fast and noticed a few other unusual things happening which led to the discovery that he had ALS.  His story is truly an inspiration and despite everything that David is going through, his spirits are high and he is appreciative of all of the family and friends that he has in his corner.  Watch this video to learn about David Leys life and journey (A true inspiration).

For this weeks ride what you can expect is 4 Mountainous Hills which reminds me of the Chamonix Mont Blanc Ride that I used to love back when I was living in Paris.
