We are excited to announce a new and partnership with the American Cancer Society Pedal to End Cancer. This year, for the first time ever, this event will be extended beyond the three hour spinning session by four clubs with connected Expresso bikes. Starting tomorrow, Friday, March 1 through Tuesday, March 5, these clubs will compete head to head live online to see who can ride the most to support cancer research. You can follow all the action here:
Since its inception in 2005, in New England, Pedal to End Cancer has raised more than $2.2 million, supporting the American Cancer Society in their unique mission to save lives and create more birthdays, by helping people stay well and get well, find cures, and fight back. For 2013, 90+ fitness gyms will host the event in early March and for the first time, four participating clubs with Expresso bikes will be able to track their mileage online. There is no fundraising minimum, but participants must register at pedaltoendcancer.org for $25 and select the club they will be riding at.
The rules are simple. Participants will sign in and ride the Expresso bike at their clubs from March 1st to 5th. All miles ridden on standard Expresso routes will contribute to their individual and team totals.
At the end of the challenge, the winning team and the top overall rider will be inducted into the Pedal to end Cancer Hall of Fame. Interactive Fitness will make also make a donation on behalf of their efforts.
Good luck to the riders and clubs and thanks to everyone for supporting such an important cause!
