Pedal to End Cancer

Date: March 2, 2014
Location: B&S Fitness, Salem MA
Fundraising: $100 per hour / 3 hour event  for the American Cancer Society
Website: Pedal to End Cancer
Ride Category: Charity

The first charity ride for 2014 is actually an indoor ride, giving no excuses for those fair-weather riders who won't hit the roads until May. (That's you, my dear irrepressible Cyclopaths.) On March 2nd, athletic clubs around New England, including B&S Fitness in Salem, will host the Pedal to End Cancer -- a three hour indoor cycling event to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Originally titled Spin for Hope, the fundraiser has raised more than $2.5 million dollars since it's first event in 2005. Riders register for 1-3 hours, individually or as a team, pledging to raise at least $100 for every hour they ride.


It could be fun to get a few Cyclopaths on board for this event as a team... if anyone is interested, email Tam at tamcronin@gmail.com.

Hi Gang! I had a hard time deciding on whether to ride the PMC this year or a few of the smaller charity rides. I've decided to do the latter, and will volunteer for the PMC this year and return to ride in 2015 when Chip can ride. (He misses the age cutoff by 2 weeks this year.)

I'm planning to ride four or five small rides, starting with this indoor ride for the American Cancer Society. I won't do any fundraising but will donate the money that would have gone towards PMC registration to this. :) If anyone is interested in joining me, let me know!

Hope to see you all soon!
