“The thing about cyr wheelers is we’re used to training on our own, so we’re all yearning to spin, talk, and watch other people spin. I can’t tell you how people that, when I meet them, had never met another cyr wheeler before, and had never seen anyone else spin in front of them–crazy!. It is so important and special to see others work with the wheel in front of you.”
