Hundreds of local causes and charities have used our studio to raise money over the past few years. In these "CycleGiving Rides" proceeds raised go directly to the charity. We love using our studio this way. We call it "CycleGiving"
Do you have a cause? It's simple
1) You invite riders to the studio, we require a minimum of 25 riders registered
2) You charge guests whatever you feel is right
3) We provide the facility and the instructor
4) CycleBar can provide space and table for you to set up refreshments after your ride.
5) There is a $50 administrative fee, all other money goes to the event charity.
It's a WIN-WIN. Here are a few of the groups that have used CycleBar in recent months:
