Meet Our Instructors


Laurie Parkinson

Owner/Instructor

Founder Laurie Parkinson, an avid cyclist and triathlete, realized her dream and opened L Train Cycling Studio in December 2006. Her enthusiasm, athleticism, and passion for spinning shines through in all of her classes, which are high-energy, motivating and feature great playlists.
An accomplished athlete, Laurie has raced in 10 triathlons, and started Westchester Adventures, an outdoor cycling business, in 2001 to share her love of cycling and fitness with others. Since then she has become a leading certified spin instructor from both Schwinn and Madd Dog Athletics.
As a Larchmont resident, giving back to the community has always been important to Laurie. She and her team have created a loyal community of followers that goes beyond the studio. They have hosted and sponsored many fundraisers for local and national charities and organizations.
Parkinson received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theater from Ithaca College. When not on the bike, Laurie enjoys spending time with her family and friends and loves to watch her 4 sons play football.

Andrew Boreland

With over 20 years of experience in all aspects of fitness, Andrew’s appreciation and passion for spinning comes shining through in all of his classes. As a former competitive athlete in bike racing, duathlons and running, he naturally brings enthusiasm, great energy and motivating music to L Train. When not teaching on the bike, you can find Andrew cycling outside with his triathlete wife and twin 12 year old sons.

 

Kari Bilik

Kari started taking classes at L Train two summers ago and since she started, she hasn’t looked back. An avid spinner, she became a certified spin instructor through Madd Dog Athletics. She is excited to start her indoor cycling teaching career at L Train. When not spinning, Kari can be found running around Larchmont with her three kids and nephew or walking her German Shepherd.

Will Parkinson

Will, a football player and sports management major at SUNY Cortland, comes to L Train to share his passion for fitness with our family of riders.  Whether he is on the field or working out in the gym, he believes in hard work and getting results. Will’s classes focus on drills and routines that maximize the complete workout from strength building and speed work to going the distance. His smile and charm, along with his motivational workouts, brings out the best in every class.
