Come out and join us for our SEVENTH annual "Spin for LIVESTRONG" event in downtown Seattle. It's a hoot! It's a holler! It's full on heckling of passing pedestrians and drivers!
Be ready to make some noise! If you are a cyclist, bring your bike and your trainer and spin with us. If you aren't a cyclist, come down to cheer us on and heckle as well! Wear your LIVESTRONG jerseys, t-shirts, or something yellow to support us!
Here are the details of this year's LIVESTRONG Day event in Seattle - hope you can join us, bring a friend, and have some fun for an extended lunch hour frolic on ... "Bike to Work Day"!

Cycling. Spandex. Survivorship. Need we say more?
Cyclists and supporters will ‘spin’ on stationary trainers for two hours in support of cancer survivors, on the downtown streets of Seattle! We will ride in unison, raise awareness and fundraise, and heckle pedestrians as they pass by our line of cyclists. Grab a wristband! Cheer us on, or cheer with us! Every donation gets a round of applause.
What to Bring:
If Biking: bring your bike and stationary trainer (need one? Let me know and I may be able to scrounge one up!), and your cycling kit. Wear LIVESTRONG colors - yellow/black - but we may have a jersey to lend if you need it, too.
If you're not biking: come cheer us on, and wear yellow!
Some snacks provided. Be sure to bring full water bottles!
We're riding rain or shine! This year, we will have canopies overhead to keep us dry, just in case, compliments of our local Performance Bike store! (As well as some raffly giveaways, too ...!)
It would be great to see you - please show up (RSVP's encouraged to firstname.lastname@example.org) and support us!
