Jenny Lytle, Michelle Groene, and Susan Raftrey in front of chalk PowerRyde logo
Jenny Lytle, Michele Groene, and Susan Raftery This month we are spotlighting a Power Ryding trio of friends; Jenny, Michele and Susan. Michele was the first of the gang to come to Power Ryde, all the way back in 2013! Jenny and Susan started ryding with us in 2015, when we moved into our new space. Over the years these ladies have not only continued to come together, but they've brought numero...

Shannon Cameron This month we are spotlighting one of our Virtual Strength class participants! As many of you know, a lot of our business has moved to virtual since the shutdown in March. Right now, all of our strength classes have stayed virtual. We offer these classes 4x a week and record each one, so participants can do them whenever is convenient for them. We have participants all over the co...

Ed Horton I love doing these monthly Student Spotlights because I learn so much about all of our clients; new students and those who have been coming for years...and I mean YEARS! Ed started ryding with us four years ago in 2016 and I just learned so much about him from his answers below...and laughed more than once! To date, Ed has ridden in 398 classes. I know this, because he regularly text...
Ally Ortlepp giving thumbs up
Ally Ortlepp Ally started ryding with us in August of last year (2019). She came with long-time Power Ryder and friend, Sara (Wilson) Hundemer. She started with the Sunday Power Hour class (WOWZA) and then worked her way to coming twice a week; Sundays and Thursdays (well, before we had to close). Once our doors shut and we went virtual, Ally started joining us for EVERY OFF THE BIKE STRENGTH CL...
group of four people in race
Audrey and Bill Fitzgerald I can't believe it has been almost 4 years since Audrey and Bill started Power Ryding, but it has! Audrey was the first to come. She had just started running and was using Power Ryde to cross-train. If my memory is correct, she and Bill ran the Thanksgiving Day 10k that year (2016), Audrey beat Bill, and she said it was because she had been coming to Power Ryde. That De...
Steph Meinberg in front of PowerRyde chalk logo
Steph Meinberg My mom and I first met Steph in early 2019 when she came in to write a story for Loveland Lifestyle Magazine on Power Ryde and our fundraising efforts. We spent a lot of time talking about the studio and our awesome community and then we got her on a bike and convinced her to come give it a try. She told us she had been spinning before, but would definitely come take our bikes for ...
Stephanie and Michael Craig in front of chalk PowerRyde logo
Stephanie and Michael Craig Since our January Student of the Month will post in February, I wanted to spotlight a hard-working, Power Ryding couple! Steph and Mike instantly came to mind. These two come every Sunday morning and ryde together. Not only do they ryde for 45 minutes, but they always stay for the extra 15-minute POWER HOUR! Stephanie has ridden in my class numerous times and she's al...
Ellen Cilley and Bob Fasola in front of PowerRyde chalk logo
Ellen Cilley and Bob Fasola Did you partake in our Hustle through the Holidays Competition? If so, you definitely know Ellen and Bob! They both had their eyes on that third place spot and man did they ryde hard until the end. Ellen was more of a silent competitor; she would come to class, mark her sheet, and be gone. It wasn't until a week or so into the competition that others saw how many cla...
Carey Rivard in front of chalk PowerRyde logo
Carey Rivard Carey started ryding with us in the beginning of this year. Since then she has completed just under 100 classes; amazing! What I love most about Carey's Power Ryde story, as you will read below, is that she admittedly HATED her first ryde. This is not uncommon because our bikes are different; the side-to-side tilt and full-body workout is not easy at first. It can be hard and overwhe...
Melissa and Abbey Kappes in front of chalk PowerRyde logo
Melissa and Abbey Kappes If you didn't already know, now you do, we LOVE LOVE LOVE when mothers and daughters come ryde together! It is such a special bond and there is nothing better than sharing the experience of physical activity with your mom. ...But maybe I am biased because growing up I went to aerobics and kick-boxing classes with my mom, starting around the age of 10! I just loved the atm...
