I started this event last year. We had 40 spin bikes plus some spots for folks to bring in their road bikes. We sold bike time at $25 per hour. We were totally sold out for all four hours on all the bikes. Probably about a third of the people rode all four hours. The others all rode blocks of 1 or 2 or three hours. We also had a silent auction. We raised $10,000. Not bad for a first time event! It was a smashing success and everyone had an amazing time and raised money for a good cause. This year we are going be doubling up in size! It will be on Sunday March 3rd from 11am to 3pm. Again at the Midtown Athletic Club in Palatine. We will have 80 spinning bikes plus again we will have some spots for folks to bring in their road bikes with their trainers. We will also have the silent auction. And of course food to feed all the hungry riders just like last year. Members and non-members can all participate. Some come as individuals, others participate as teams. In total we expect to have between 150 and 200 participants. Please help me raise money for this good cause by making a donation in support of my leading this event. Thank you.
