You've heard of the Relay for Life or Race for the Cure, but what about Ryde for the Cure?
Top Dog Fitness will be hosting its first ever, Ryde for the Cure on Oct. 27, featuring spin bikes called Real Ryders that lean, lift and tilt - just like a real bicycle.
The event will be held from 12-4 p.m. and will feature 10 teams of four persons each on each of the 10 Real Ryder bikes. Each rider will ride for 50 minutes with a ten minute break in between. Cost is $100 a team or $25 per rider. There will be a donation box available during the event as well for those who wish to give to the cause.
Tonya Amine, owner of Top Dog Fitness with her husband Sam, said its important for people to know that Top Dog gives back to the community and that she and her husband "bleed orange."
"Cancer - everybody's been touched by that one way or another, Amine said. "I have personally, with a dear friend of mine who passed away from breast cancer and Tracie (Real Ryder instructor) has a friend who is battling breast cancer, so we thought, well what can we do. The bikes are a great way to do it, you can exercise, you're having fun and giving back. It's the best of both worlds."
Amine said each rider can also dedicate their ride to someone, if they wish.
There will be music, water and healthy snacks for teams as well as giveaways such as gift certificates and products from local downtown Brighton businesses.
All proceeds will go to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
