This Could Be The Most Love-ly “06880” Post Ever

Sure, it happened on Valentine’s Day. But love is eternal — and this story is too fantastic to pass up.

Last March, Adam Keller was hired by JoyRide Ridgefield. His trainer, Jared Marinelli, had only been there a year, but was already one of the indoor cycling studio’s most popular instructors.

There was an instant connection. A week later, they had their 1st date. Their relationship deepened as they kept working — and gaining fans and friends — at JoyRide’s 4 Connecticut studios.

JoyRide logoWhen Adam decided to propose, he knew he needed a JoyRide connection. He asked Rhodie Lorenz — JoyRide’s co-founder, co-owner and lead instructor — to help.

They organized a top-secret flash mob. For 3 weeks, some of the studio’s top instructors practiced spinning choreography in Westport — JoyRide’s home base.

On Valentine’s Day, Jared showed up in Westport to film what he thought was a promotional video.

But instead of him teaching a song from the instructor bike, the entire room started their own routine.

Soon, friends and family — including Jared’s parents and Adam’s mother — walked in, holding happy signs.

Finally, Adam got off his bike — front and center — and popped the question.

When Jared said “yes!” cannons sprayed confetti, and everyone cheered. (Okay, some cried too.)

The couple plan to be married next year — somewhere in Connecticut. May we respectfully suggest JoyRide Westport?

But wait! There’s more!

The entire event WAS filmed — by HooplaHa. The company produces ONLY feel-good videos.

This one certainly is. It was posted late this morning, on HooplaHa’s website. Within a few hours, it had been viewed over 350,000 times.
