RIDE for HOPE is an epic indoor cycling event hosted by the Cancer Coalition of South Georgia. On Thursday, October 11, join international Spinning® Master Instructor Scott Schlesinger for “The Everest Ride,” a 2 hour adventure with breathtaking video and empowering music. Hailed by The New York Times as “the ultimate indoor cycling class of all time,” students will imagine pedaling up sheer vertical terrain through Camps 1-4, then celebrate as they place a stake at the summit of Mount Everest in honor of someone touched by cancer.
Hosted by Tony’s Gym in Albany, a Top 10 Spinning® Facility in the United States, the ride will help raise money for cancer education, research, and screening for people living in South Georgia. Fifty-five indoor cycling bikes will be available for sponsorship at three levels: $100, $500 and $1000.

According to local Spinning® instructor and event organizer Barbara Hoots, “All fitness levels are encouraged to participate in this ride of honor and courage. The darkened, non-competitive studio environment will allow riders to pedal at their own pace as we reach the summit together.”

All donations will directly benefit cancer patients in South Georgia. “As always, the Cancer Coalition is excited that we are able to tell everyone that one hundred percent of the proceeds donated to our organization to help provide cancer education, research, screening and outreach to people living right here,” said Diane Fletcher, Cancer Coalition CEO. “We are grateful to Regions Bank and Tony’s Gym for partnering with us to provide this healthy, motivational way to help raise money to further cancer control right here in our local communities.”
