A great chance to try indoor rowing for FREE!

Take a quick break from your holiday shopping and join us for this event at the Pittsford Indoor Rowing Center, at 2800 Clover Street, Pittsford, NY 14534 (map link).

We need to warn you that rowing, whether indorrs or outdoors, is very addicting!

Learning to row is sort of like the childhood game of "Simon says"... but for adults. You'll get an oar in the water and learn proper rowing machine technique from Ethan Curren, who is our Director of Rowing as well as being a member of the US national team training staff.
