It’s baaaaack. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s second annual Race to Anyplace indoor cycling spin-a-thon is happening on April 5th. Last year, LLS raised $42,000 for critical blood-cancer research from this event; this year, their goal is $60K.

Here’s how it works: Team members of 12 or more will each complete at least one 15-minute, all-out spinning heat during the six-hour day; individuals can also take part, completing up to two 15-minute segments. Teams will compete—for prizes, of course—to cover as much mileage as they can over the course of the event, while individuals will go head-to-head for best heat time. Winners will be announced after 3 p.m. when the race ends.


When you’re not riding, there will be music and food to keep you occupied, and you can always cheer on your fellow riders, of course. Individuals must raise at least $40 to participate; teams must raise $500. More info is here.

$40 for individuals, $500 for teams, April 5th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., One Logan Square, 130 North 18th Street, Philadelphia.
