Anyone who’s ever attended a Spinning class knows what an intense workout it can be. But did you know that Spinning and cycling can be useful activities in the recovery and rehab process for wounded veterans? The Ride 2 Recovery initiative, a joint venture between the Fitness Challenge Foundation and the Military and VA Volunteer Service Office, aids in the healing process by raising money for Spinning Recovery Labs and other rehabilitative cycling programs at military and VA sites across the country.

Putting together a nationwide network of cycling labs is no easy feat, but on November 3, you can help our veterans while you get a killer workout. The fifth annual Spinning Nation charity ride will bring together cyclists across the country to support Ride 2 Recovery. Participating cycling studios will donate two one-hour classes each. (If you happen to be at the Yokota Air Base in Japan, stop by – they’re participating, too!) Once you register for a class online ($25 fee), get friends and family to sponsor your fitness fest. Studios who bring in at least $10,000 will have a donation of up to 20 bikes made in their name to a military base of their choice.

In the last two years, Spinning Nation has raised more than $250,000 for Ride 2 Recovery. So stop by Spinning Nation’s website and register today. You’ll be doing your body (and many others’) a whole lot of good.
