DRC Keiser machine

The Derby Recreation Commission voted to approve the purchase of 21 new Keiser M3i Indoor Cycles. 

The Derby Recreation Commission unanimously approved the addition of 21 new Keiser M3i Indoor Cycles at its June 11 board meeting.

Plans were presented due to staff recommendation of getting the bikes delivered and installed prior to annual maintenance and the August membership pricing changes.

“We feel with updates in technology and changes made over time, we researched what would be best out on the market,” DRC Director of Facilities Darcie Parkhurst said. “We’ve been anticipating this replacement for several years.”
