Now I've Gone and Done It!

Oh, boy, I've gone and done it now.  I set a challenge for my indoor cycling
classes, and now I'm going to have to put or shut up.  I challenged my classes to fill 30 Spinner
® NXT bikes for 12 hours.

The plan is to fill those bikes for 12 hours with 30 students per hour.  The students will form teams and rent each bike for $200 for the 12 hours.  If they fill them for all 12 hours I promised I'd ride the whole 12 hours - solo. 

The goal is to support the Susan G Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Research with a minimum gift of $6000.00.  I think I can pedal for 12 hours for that gift.  I know that a lot of my online contacts live in the Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland (OK, Andrea Bedard, I'm looking for you) areas.  I'd love to have you come join me in this worthy cause. 

If you're in the Winchester, VA area the first weekend of November (11/5/11) you can become a part of a team and join me.  You can ride, you can donate, you can even pray, because I may need it.

I've been abusing these students for 3 year now.  It's their turn to get me back.  What was I thinking???  You can keep up with our progress on my Studio B Cycling Facebook page.  We'd love to see you November 5th!!

Mike, 

Sounds like an incredible challenge - but God Bless you, I am not in good enough shape to pull that off for 12 hours.  So, I will be praying for you:-)

All the best, Michelle

It should be a blast, Michelle.  Actually, most team members will only spend an hour on the bike.  So, they'll rotate every hour.  Kind of like a relay.  It should be a blast.

Oh, look at that: I have been called out! Ok! I am in - I'll ride on a team [it's been awhile since I instructed my classes but I'm sure I can still last an hour or two] provided my husband is not "playing in the sandbox" or going TAD at that time...

Sign me up!
