Spinning is a privilege, NOT a right

Anyone who reads my blog posts knows I can be a tiny bit fanatical about spinning.  I spin anywhere from 3-5 times per week and I do it for the health benefits, of course, but there is more.  I do it for the comradery.  I love to see my fellow riders at 5am and rehash the events in our lives, laugh about getting up at 3:30am to sign in and supporting each other when we don't feel like coming to…
