Did you know that all our efforts from KINDred Cycle support and fund our sister organization & Non Profit KINDred Mothers?  

They are two separate organizations connected by a common mission.

Through community and camaraderie we believe we can mitigate the risks of social anxiety & isolation felt by many mothers.  

When studio classes aren't in session, you may find things like Coffee with an LDR, Mommy Meet-ups, Mommy Socialization hours, Childbirth Education Classes and open Q&A with local pediatricians, Physical Therapists, OBGYNs and more.

All in an effort to connect, empower & educate our local moms.  

​This is where our tag line 'RIDE KIND' at KINDred Cycle gets its roots, it's a reminder that we RIDE to fund KINDred Mothers.  To make our grassroots dream a reality.

Hi! I'm Karli, the owner of KINDred Cycle and founder of Kindred Mothers. I'm glad you're here.

 

I’m a mom of two amazing kids but the truth is motherhood didn’t come all that easy to me at first, and it still doesn’t.  When my son was born I found myself isolated from my old community of coworkers, friends and far from family.  

 

Quickly, I discovered a group of women who met weekly at the hospital with a lactation consultant and these moms became my lifeline.  I was lucky.  It wasn’t long after I saw how much I relied on these women I began to dream of this idea behind Kindred Mothers.

 

Studying Community Development in the Architecture and Urban Planning department at Virginia Tech, it wasn’t a far reach from my academic interests.  I knew it was possible and the more I researched the community around me of transplants, commuters, moms and military wives I realized it was desperately needed.  

 

I found spin and rhythmic fitness after my second child and it helped me in a new way, by connecting me with other women in my community but also healing me as an individual by pushing me to my extreme limit.  I saw what I was made of and knew immediately I wanted to be an instructor, to help other women see how strong they were.  That they could do so much more than they realized they were capable of. As women and as mothers.
