For the fourth year in a row, Cycle for Good will raise money to support Special Olympics and The J. On December 18, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., members and guests can rent a bike at The J for $25 per hour. This national event started in 2012 to celebrate the Chanukah season at Jewish Community Centers across North America with a bit of tzedakah. Participants are encouraged to either rent the bikes or find sponsors for their ride. The J will host two special versions of their normally scheduled cycle group fitness classes for the event.
Wellness and Membership Experience Director, Tara Stone will be back on the bike as well. Each year she rides for at least four hours, raising money in the front lobby of The J.
“I love doing it. I started spinning 15 years ago and am a certified spinning instructor,” said Stone. “The members get a kick out of seeing me and it raises a lot of money for a good cause.”
Other group fitness classes are getting in on the fun as well, and will be collecting donations throughout the day.
The community is invited to join the event; free guest passes for The J will be available all day as well. If you are interested in signing up to ride in one of the classes, call the Wellness Desk at 502-238-2727 to reserve your seat.
