New athletic training center opens in Carytown

A new athletic training center has opened in Carytown. The Central Virginia Endurance Performance Training Center offers physical testing, equipment, and coaching for people training for triathlon, cycling, and running competitions.

The Carytown Bicycle Company has also moved next door.

Operators hope to tap into enthusiasm for the sports now that Richmond will host the 2015 World Cycling Championships.

Said CVE Performance Training Center owner Bob Flanigan, "A lot of people are being turned onto the sports of cycling, multisport, triathlon, etc.  Watching the change that's happening here in Richmond into a healthier lifestyle is really exciting."

The Performance Training Center and Carytown Bicycle Company are located at 3112 West Cary Street in Richmond.
