Ride for Refugees

This class is taught by:

Mandy Hoar

How I got into indoor cycling: I first tried spinning in 1999 after an injury forced me to hang up my running shoes....I have never looked back! Spinning offers the fantastic cardio workout feeling, we used to all a "runner's high" by using great music to motivate us to work hard, have fun, and just go for it!

Music Mania: Although my true passion is new music with a great beat (from Flo rida and Mumford and Sons to Adele and Rihanna), I always try to mix in classics like Motown, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay and U2).  I am a big fan of mash-ups and a recent convert to country rock! I  love theme classes like the all video 25th anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and recently the dance-off concert video class featuring Tina Turner versus Beyonce.

What makes a great class: It is all about the music.  I hope when you leave the spin room you will have a song in your head, sweat on your back, and a big smile on your face!
Please join us for a fun afternoon at CycleBar in Wellesley to raise money for the International Rescue Committee through Needham Kids Helping Refugees!
The campaign, “Needham Kids Helping Refugees,” was conceived by four Needham moms wishing to help the children and families caught in the middle of the horrificwarfare in Syria. The campaign, benefiting the International Rescue Committee (IRC) has been embraced by many Needham schools, local businesses and community members, and includes the sale of handmade cards by K-8 students.

The fundraising event is not only a way to empower our children to make a difference, but also an opportunity to teach compassion, kindness and the importance of taking care of innocent families caught in the middle of Syria’s civil war which began five years ago.

The IRC was founded by Albert Einstein over 80 years ago. Today, the IRC responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future. Across Syria, the International Rescue Committee is the only international relief agency working on all fronts of the Syrian crisis, assisting those displaced inside Syria and those who have sought refuge in neighboring countries, Europe and the U.S. The IRC provides lifesaving support to over 1.3 million people—almost half of them children—who are struggling to survive a brutal war now in its seventh year.

This 45 minute high energy class provides awesome music and high def music videos. This class is designed for participants of all levels.
