Calling All Spin Junkies: CHOP Is Hosting a Giant Spin-In

It’s essentially a giant Spin party. Bonus: It’s for a good cause.

Calling all Spin addicts: The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is hosting an event you will probably (definitely) want to get in on this March. It’s called the Philly Spin-In and it’s essentially a big Spin party. Bonus: The shindig benefits cardiac patients under treatment at CHOP.

Here’s the deal: On Sunday, March 5th, CHOP will be bringing a whopping 100 Spin bikes into their Colket Translational Research Building for the Philly Spin-In. The event consists of two sessions: the first, for the early birds among us, runs from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.; the second session runs from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. But don’t worry — you don’t have to tackle four full hours of cycling alone: The Philly Spin-In can be tackled relay-style as a team (a minimum of four riders or a max of eight) or, if you want to take it on solo, you can (more power to you). Teams who tackle the Spin-in together will be able to switch riders whenever they like, with four 45-minute rides — complete with bumpin’ tunes — led by different Spin instructors going down throughout the four-hour session. The idea is to raise money for little hearts treated at CHOP, so team members are required to raise a minimum of $250 each, while solo riders are required to raise a minimum of $2,000.

If you want in, register here by March 1st to reserve your (or your team’s) bike online. Or if you get super ambitious at the last minute, you’ll also be also register in-person on the day of the event, granted the 100 bikes aren’t already filled. Oh, and you can register as a virtual participant, if sweating out of sight of strangers more your thing. Happy spinning!
