Beginning at 7pm registered riders (and teams of riders) will begin a 4 hour long pedal-a-thon on stationary bikes to raise money for the American Diabetes Association’s Quintiles North Carolina Tour de Cure!
Expect great food, fun, and entertainment (including live music from Raleigh’s own Winsor Oaks Band!) as we Crank for a Cause in Downtown Raleigh from 6pm to Midnight! We’ll have a prize raffle going throughout the night and fun competitions and games at the Velolympiad at 8pm.
The event will have competitive and recreational fundraising categories, with team participation encouraged. Bring your own trainer (or
rent borrow one of ours for $30 free!) Ride as an individual or as a team (up to 12 members) for as many miles or minutes as you can! Riders and volunteers will solicit sponsorship/donations throughout the event. Prizes will be awarded for most mileage, most money raised, most creative team outfits and much more! We’ll provide a bike computer to track our competitors.
We’ve received 10 new trainers from Cycle Ops and sponsorship from Beers and Gears which allows us to offer registration at the event! Show up ready to crank with your bike and registration fee at 5:45 and you’re in!
