The Invitation That Changed One Rider's Life
ew York City rider CRYSTAL 'VIOLET' MARRERO hesitantly agreed to join her friends at a SoulCycle class last fall. Within months, she counted her 100th ride and found a family.
One invite turned my whole life around.
Two years prior, I had lost my uncle to the big C. He took such good care of himself, was a black belt, and the father of seven boys — he was a superhero! To have someone I admired so much slip away from me in nine months was devastating. It was the hardest time I had to go through and my whole world felt like it was crashing down.
