We had the BEST time at our annual Under the Stars charity ride this past weekend! Along with two of our franchise studios, who held their events earlier this month, we all threw the ultimate party-on-a-bike to support local programs in Lake Oswego (Oregon), Happy Valley (Oregon) and Centennial (Colorado). Our amazing instructors rocked the podium for 45-energizing minutes, and led riders on the outdoor ride of the year. The sold-out events exceeded our expectations and raised thousands of dollars! All funds raised will go towards the Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation Scholarship Fund, No Kid Hungry and Highlands Ranch Parks and Recreation Foundation, respectively.

Creating a supportive community lies at the heart of our StarFam, which is why StarCycle has placed a large emphasis on hosting charity rides throughout the year. Reaching beyond the studio walls, our annual Under the Stars ride allows us to bring the community together and ride for a cause. Thank you to our clients who made it such an amazing event!

Also thanks to our vendors: La Cadeau Winery, Canteen Juice 365, Luluemon, Kyra’s Bakery, and Nola Donuts.

Here’s what some of our riders had to say about our Under the Stars event and StarCycle:

“That was so fun! The music kept me going and just when I thought “Oh my god, I can’t stay on this bike another minute”, the energy of the instructor and community got me through. I can’t wait to come back for more.” – Kait Hurley, kaithurley.com

“Honestly, with StarCycle, you’ve got to bring your game. If you haven’t burned at least 600 calories, you’re doing something wrong! One reason I’m here today is that I had an amazing workout (with my first class). It’s so cool to see what Dionne and Erin have created.” – Brian McFayden, KGW-TV

“It doesn’t matter how in shape or out of shape I am, it is always challenging.” – Matt Feenstra

“I just love it. Riding at StarCycle is my time to do something for myself.” – Michelle Janke

“The music and energy draws me.” – Kristie Medak

“I just love StarCycle. I think it’s a fun workout because of the music and the rhythm. It feels like 15 minutes have gone by, not 45.” – Liz Weldon

We can’t wait to do this again- hope to see you at our next Under the Stars, or in the studio. Either way, let’s ride!
