Come show your support for kids and bikes with the sweat on your brow and the strength of your legs!
Cascade Bicycle Club and Allstar Fitness will host the second annual Major Taylor Project Spin-A-Thon on Thursday, Feb. 16. All proceeds will support our efforts to introduce the joy of cycling to underserved communities and empower the next generation of riders through the Major Taylor Project.
Our goal is to raise $15,000 in one evening, enabling us to expand the program to a sixth location, Highline High School in Burien, for the 2012-2013 school year. And we think we can do it. But we need your help.
How does it work? Well, you have several options:
- Just sign up to spin for one, two or three hours between 5 and 8 p.m., with a minimum donation of $25 per hour.
- Sponsor-a-Spinner: Collect pledges from friends and family — encourage them to give enough to keep you on the bike for all three hours!
- Sponsor-a-Student: Donate, then let one of our students ride so you don’t have to.
- Match-a-Spinner: If you work for an organization that will match tax-deductible gifts, you can double your support.
You can include an online donation with your RSVP, mail a check to Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation at 7400 Sand Point Way NE, Suite 101s, Seattle, WA 98115 (make sure it’s payable to Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation and include “MTP Spin-A-Thon” in the memo), or pay at the door with credit card, check or cash.
And even if you can’t be with us, you can support the cause by including a donation with your regrets.

Get ready for a fun, fast-paced, sweat-filled evening. We’ll see you there.
