2013-ADA-Burnathon

 

 

Join us Saturday 1/19/13 for the second annual Burnathon which challenges participants to keep 34 spin bikes in constant motion for 6 hours. Anyone can spin for an hour shift for a $50 donation. The donation can either be donated solely by the participating individual or fundraised. The money will count toward the participant’s Twin Cities Tour de Cure fundraising minimum if they choose to ride in that event on Saturday June 1, 2013. If you have not already joined a fundraising team be sure to join Team CycleQuest to pool our donations together. Contact Jen Oss at joss@diabetes.org or 888-DIABETES x6783 to reserve a bike.

Team CycleQuest raised $7,935 in 2011 and $12,772 in 2012 for the American Diabetes Association by fundraising to ride in the annual Tour de Cure bike ride. The TdC this year will be on Saturday June 1st and has many ride routes up to a full 100 miles century. Even if you plan on fundraising with a different team come and participate in the Burnathon which is the perfect event to ride with your team members during these cold winter months. Ride for 1 hour, 2 hours or up to 6 hours which is the equivalent to riding a 100 miles century. There is no better indoor endurance event this winter to challenge yourself to test your fitness. Even if you are not looking to ride many hours on the bike you can come to the studio, donate towards this great cause and get in a fun calorie burning workout.

How do I register to participate in the Burnathon?

To register for the Burnathon on Saturday January 19th go to MindBody Online and click on the “Sign up for Cycle Classes” tab in the calendar schedule and go forward to the week of 1/19 and click the “Sign Up” button to register for the class(es) you want to take. Class registration is free but the donated $50/class will be collected at the front desk of the studio on your arrival.

Do I have to join a team to participate in the Tour de Cure ride?

No, you can do a regular individual registration and do the ride, but if you want to get connected with other riders and have your donations pooled together in a team effort then there are many Tour de Cure teams to choose from. If you are associated with CycleQuest Studio then join Team CycleQuest from your Tour page. We’d love to have you onboard and train with us in the studio on the road.

If I am planning on riding the Tour de Cure do I have to raise the donations now and take part in the Burnathon?

No, but why not take care of the fundraising early and take some free indoor cycling classes at CycleQuest Studio this Saturday!

Where can I get more information about the Tour de Cure bike ride?

The American Diabetes Association organizes the ride that starts Saturday morning June 1st at Minnehaha Falls and has many routes the goes west past Lake Minnetonka and east through downtown St. Paul. A $150 minimum fundraising fee is required to participate. 2013 Twin Cities Tour de Cure bike event click here.
