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.
