Bike commuters and weekend warrior triathletes alike should consider using charity bike rides as the perfect setting to push themselves and the pedal. Think about it: These events are fully supported, which mean staff is on hand to keep you fueled, change flats, help with other mechanical issues, even give you a lift. And because these rides are more like tours than like races, you can really sit back and enjoy them. To find upcoming local charity rides for causes like MS and diabetes, check out mapmyride.com/mycyclingevent, which is a tool created by Raleigh Bicycles to connect cause-cyclists with rides near them. One of our personal favorites is the Dempsey Challenge, a cycle charity event designed to raise money for the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing at Central Maine Medical Center. Sign up for the 50-miler and you'll get to ride alongside McDreamy himself!

Looking for a harder ride? Apply for an Epic Endurance Bucket List adventure, like the Tour de California or Leadville 100, through Carmichael Training Systems. Lance Armstrong's former coach, Chris Carmichael, and his talented staff of coaches will prep you for the experience of a lifetime.
