After more than a year of planning and preparations on the 19:6:19 the first Official Spinning® studio in Ubud, Bali opened its doors. With an incredible community growing and a home for like minded expat locals of the island, finally a space had been created to 'pedal, bend and lift' their way to a brighter, fitter and better self.
In what can only be described as a shocking and tragic discovery, after only 3 months of being opened PEDAL was no longer. On the 12th of October Tash (the owner) arrived to the Saturday 8am class with many of the regular riders to find their beautiful studio and 23 state of the art Spinner® Chrono™ bikes burnt to nothing more but a pile of ashes. The studio did not have insurance and the cause of the fire is unknown.
The shock and reaslistaion of what this means for PEDAL, its members, and all those who know Natashia, that without having insurance or anything in reserve to start over, the global community is coming together to do all they can to support a true rising from the ashes.
After what will be a a much needed period of healing, grieving and recovery the community behind Tash and her team are determined that PEDAL will be back but only with a universe of miracles and an army of warriors.
