This Saturday, April 26, Spinning (the trademarked brand of indoor cycling) will join forces with the American Heart Association with rides at more than 40 participating spin studios and fitness centers across the country.
It’s part of the company’s annual Spinning Nation event. And since its inception in 2008, indoor cycling fans have helped raise more than $150,000 for various charities. This year’s funds and education efforts will serve Go Red for Women, a cause which helps fight heart disease in women.
Spinners can register for one-hour sessions, starting at $25, on the Spinning Nation website—in cities ranging from San Francisco to New Orleans and Memphis to Miami. (Los Angeles riders, you can also pick a themed ride—’80s, rock & roll, or R&B—totally your call if you pedal harder to Hall and Oates’ “Maneater” or Mariah Carey “Fantasy.”)
With events like Spinning Nation, as well as Cycle for Survival and the Sports Bra Challenge to support the SEAK Foundation, indoor cycling has become a popular way to get people pumped to raise money for great causes—in addition to the benefit of a rocking cardio workout. —Molly Gallagher
