Cycle for Friendship Event at Legacy Place

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Hey, hey!

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to participate in Cycle for Friendship at Legacy Place to benefit Best Buddies Massachusetts. It was such a wonderful event and definitely one that I would attend again. It was well-organized, a lot of fun, and I got an awesome workout while benefiting a great cause at the same time!


Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

The event kicked off at 8:00 AM with the first of four 45-minute spinning classes led by Rev’d instructors. (Rev’d is a local spin studio with a location neighboring Legacy Place and at Patriot Place.) The instructors were really enthusiastic and knew exactly how to motivate the riders with lots of rockin’ music and encouragement.

The event was held outdoors in one of the roadways between shops at Legacy Place (how cool is that?!), which meant spin participants got their sweat on outside. It was a little gray yesterday, but I liked the sprinkle of rain while spinning!


Also at the event were a bunch of “yard” games.

As well as snacks from Whole Foods.

And water from Shake Shack. It was great to see so many businesses supporting the event.

Ready to ride! My sister and friend Marisa joined me for the class, which was much harder than I expected. The instructor, Joel, had us moving and grooving all over the bike– standing up, sitting down, doing crunches– and he put us through some serious hill work. My legs were burnnnning at times. Oooh, baby, it felt so good. It was definitely a great workout!


Once spinning ended, there was an optional yoga cool-down with Stil Studio, but we ended up skipping it since it started to rain harder. Next time for sure!

After the event, I had the pleasure of meeting Craig Welton, the State Director for Best Buddies, who also participated in the class. Sherri (on the right) works for Legacy Place and did an amazing job planning the event!

All in all, it was a wonderful event, and I’m so glad I was able to participate. A big THANK YOU to Legacy Place and Best Buddies for inviting me!!

Questions of the Day

How was your Sunday? What’d you do?

Do you like spinning? Do you enjoy moving and grooving all over the bike? 



  1. Just wanted to say two friends and I did this event because you posted about it, we did the same heat as you and realized afterwards we should have said hi & thanks for letting us know about it! So thanks, it was a really fun event, please keep posting about local stuff like this! 🙂

    1. I would have loved to meet you guys! So glad you enjoyed it!! I’ll definitely share future events on CNC. I believe there’s a similar event (maybe a bootcamp) happening at the Derby Street Shoppes in the fall. I’ll be sure to share details!

  2. I haven’t heard of an event like this but in any case, this is such a great idea! Its also great when a community will get behind non-profit organizations to support their mission. I have not tried spinning but I feel like it would actually be blast outside!

  3. Thank you for sharing this event. I was planning on attending but the weather didn’t look like it was going to cooperate. Coming from Providence, I would have liked to have spent the day.
    Please continue to post similar events. Much appreciated as I’m always looking for something out of the ordinary.
