Services to Colorado Springs Locals

During this emergency, we know that training is the furthest thing from many people’s mind. However, we welcome cyclists and triathletes to come to our facility at 600 South 21st Street (the Roundhouse building at the corner of Highway 24 and 21st Street) to ride or run indoors at no charge. We have more than 20 Computrainers and two treadmills. You are welcome to bring your own stationary trainer in case we run out of space on the Computrainers. You are welcome to use our shower facilities after your workout as well. The training facility will be open to athletes from 8:00AM-7PM Mon-Fri. Please plan for your workouts to be completed by 7PM. If you have questions, please call us at 719-635-0645.

  1. I am devastated by the fire and how it is affecting all of you. I feel some helpless here in Missouri do do anything. I have worke with Kirk for several years now and feel like a part of your family. I am sending a donation to careandshare. I pray the fire will be contained soon and that all the displaced people will be back to normal soon.
