What you need:

  • Shoes - bring your own SPD clip-in shoes, rent them at the studio for $2, or wear sneakers and use the cages on the underside of the pedal.
  • Water bottle - you're going to need to hydrate during the class!
  • Wear lightweight clothing you can sweat in.
  • The studio provides towels but feel free to bring your own. You're gonna sweat!

No experience is needed! Go at your own pace and remember why you are there...to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis.

Why am I asking you to join me on this ride?
I have a goal to raise a total of $4,000 for the CF Foundation's Arizona Xtreme Hike at the Grand Canyon. I'll be hiking from the South Rim to the North Rim on May 16th. I want to help find a cure for the disease that impacts my friends and children of my friends.

Don't know about CF? Here are the basics:

Cystic fibrosis is a rare, life-shortening, genetic disease found in about 30,000 people in the U.S. A genetic mutation causes a thick and sticky mucus in various organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps germs leading to infections, inflammation, respiratory failure, and other complications. In the pancreas, the buildup of mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that help the body absorb food and key nutrients, resulting in malnutrition and poor growth. In the liver, the thick mucus can block the bile duct, causing liver disease. In men, CF can affect their ability to have children.


While there has been significant progress in treating this disease, there is still no cure and too many lives are cut far too short.

Will you be part of the cure by riding with me on January 18? I'm grateful for your support. Reserve your bike!
