Jamie’s Cycling Journey

“I’m so happy to be here!” Jamie said as soon as two visitors sat down with her in the lobby of Full Psycle indoor cycling studio during a break from her training session. She was joined that day by four of her fellow Envision Unlimited program participants plus one staff member, as well as members of the community, and – last but not least – their class trainer and studio owner David, who is beloved by the cyclists.
