Don’t have time to exercise?
The extremely busy Erin Duncan, who is opening Spin.ICT this fall, has raised five children on her own since her husband died 14 years ago. She now has two grandchildren as well.
For almost 31 years, she’s owned a cleaning service called Maid in Wichita and has had rental properties.
Never miss a local story.
Then almost a decade ago, she started taking cycling classes at the YMCA and eventually became a teacher.
Now, she’s giving up the cleaning to focus on opening her own spin studio this fall at Occidental Management’s Tyler Pointe development at the southeast corner of 13th and Tyler.
“I guess I have an entrepreneurial spirit,” Duncan says.
She also loves riding and teaching it.
“Anyone at any level can just get on a bike, especially an indoor bike, and just ride.”
Duncan says classes are enjoyable and not exercise drudgery.
“Everyone’s having fun together.”
Before they know it, students are gaining strength and confidence, she says.
“You just keep wanting to do more,” Duncan says. “It’s really kind of a gateway to doing other things.”
The cycle boutique, as she calls it, will be in 3,000 square feet. Occidental’s Michael Madden handled the deal.
Duncan says tracking cycling performance is fun, too.
“There’s so much technology out there.”
Duncan plans to open Spin.ICT in November and will announce an opening date closer to the time.
