In the heart of an electrifying spin studio, a special event unfolded that brought together not only spinning enthusiasts but also a powerful cause. Led by the dynamic Sarah Wersborg, founder of Project S, this remarkable spin session had energy, the beat, and the sweat—all combined to create an exhilarating hour that wasn't just about spinning, but about empowering those who can't. Plus, with Novy's Kitchen providing Indonesian small bites, the event was a feast for the senses. Here's a glimpse into the high-energy Ride for Freedom spin class, where pedal power met a meaningful mission.
The Powerhouse Instructors: Sarah Wersborg, renowned for her expertise in the spinning world, took the lead in this extraordinary session. With her at the helm, participants knew they were in for a ride like no other. Joining the group running legends Scottie Callaghan and Zein Williams, bringing their passion for movement to the spin studio, igniting a shared fire of determination and purpose in everyone.
"Amidst the beats and sweat, we found a rhythm that transcended the studio walls. It wasn't just about that 'last time,' it was about pushing boundaries together. As we spun for those who can't, we rode with purpose, uniting our efforts to empower. Let's not only spin, but also walk, hike, ride, and run for freedom – extending a hand to those whose journeys inspire us to move forward. Because when we move for them, we move towards their freedom" 🚴♀️🏃♂️🌟
The Energetic Atmosphere: As the music soared, so did the energy in the room. The pulse of the music resonated with each pedal stroke, creating an infectious rhythm that united the participants in their pursuit of something greater. Sarah turned up the volume and tempo, pushing everyone to their limits, out of the saddle, and into a realm of exhilarating intensity. With sweat glistening and hearts pounding, the room became a hub of positive energy, grit and determination.
Finding Strength Together: One of the defining moments of the session was the collective effort. Participants of varying fitness levels found common ground in the shared challenge. Pushing themselves to go harder, faster, and stronger, they embraced the power of unity as they rode for those who couldn't. The intensity was balanced with moments of recovery, reminding everyone that progress is achieved through exertion and restoration.
Indulging the Senses: Adding to the experience, Novy's Kitchen provided tantalizing Indonesian small bites, enriching the event with flavours that celebrated community and culture. As participants refuelled and mingled after the session, recounting their experience, laughing at the “just one more time” remarks from Sarah - when it wasn't really that last time, and bonding as a group - all there to help individuals who cant spin - spinning for those that can’t - let's Walk, Hike, Ride or Run for Freedom and help those that can’t
The Cause: Run for Freedom Movement: Beyond the spin bikes, beyond the sweat-soaked clothes, there was a deeper purpose that fueled every pedal. Jo Lodder, co-founder of Run for Freedom, took to the saddle as the guest rider, embodying the spirit of the movement.

Every revolution of the bike symbolized support for a cause that extends far beyond the spin studio.

The Ride for Freedom spin class wasn't just a physical endeavor; it was an embodiment of the belief that movement should be a right, not a privilege. As the class concluded, it was evident that the echoes of this session would continue to inspire and empower, reaching far beyond the walls of the studio.
