THE STORY:

What is Cycle for Heroes?

Cycle for Heroes is a 3-hour rock’n’roll inspired outdoor stationary cycling event where you will fundraise, cheer, sweat, and show support for our veterans and their families.  Your Cycle for Heroes experience starts today when you register. You will be given a link to your own Cycle for Heroes webpage that you can customize, send to friends, post on social media, and use to spread the word. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters (click here to read about these amazing companies), all donations made will go directly to The Heroes Project, a foundation that makes the impossible a reality by empowering injured war veterans through physical and emotional training, allowing them to explore the farthest reaches of themselves and the world they live in.  These expeditions challenge the severely wounded to redefine their personal limits post injury.  The Heroes Project inspires our injured military veterans to find purpose, both physically and mentally, and ignites others to do the same. Visit www.theheroesproject.org for more information on the foundation, its focus, and other giving opportunities.

 

What will the event look like?
You will join other Cycle for Heroes participants, military vets, and the best indoor cycling instructors in the world for an unforgettable 3 hour rock & roll stationary ride.  We choose 9/09 (New York) and 9/16 (LA) so that we can honor and respect those who were lost tragically in New York on 9/11/2001.  Check-in for registered participants will begin at 5:00pm, and the event will start promptly at 6:30pm. Water, snacks, and loads of inspiration will be provided. All participants will need to bring tennis shoes (not all bikes will be fitted with bike clips, so please come prepared), comfortable clothes to sweat in, and their most patriotic and fun self. 

 

Prepare to be INSPIRED!
We will flood you with video footage of our courageous injured veteran family, drown you in rock & roll music, and inspire you to sweat through the event with wounded and active duty vets and our Fire Departments cycling amongst you.  We know that you will leave stronger, happier, motivated, and fulfilled……and our injured veterans will leave the same because of your support. 

 

Bike reservations and donations:
There is no fee to register - you can do that right now with just some personal information.

  • You can register as an individual rider (all 3 hours with YOU on that bike and a committed minimum fundraising goal of $500)
  • You can start a team (up to 4 people riding 1 bike – the team captain deciding who rides when).   Remember that a $500 minimum gets you into the event, but the more you fundraise, the better your seat!  
  • If you are dedicated to the challenge – there are roped off VIP bikes with premier seating, chances to rub elbows with celebrities, bigger & better goody bags, and a dedicated (and shorter!) beverage line….PERKS!  These bikes require a minimum of $2000 per bike and they go FAST!
