If you’re getting bored of hearing about marathon season, you might be interested in this unique race for charity. On November 23rd, Balance Chestnut Hill and Indigo Schuy are hosting a team indoor-cycling race called Wheels for Meals. All of the proceeds from the event will benefit Meals on Wheels, a nonprofit which provides over one million meals to senior citizens across the country each day.

Here’s how the race works: Each team will consist of four to six members taking turns cycling on a stationary bike, pedaling as fast as they can for 10-minute intervals. The team will go for two hours, total. Talk about a workout, huh? The goal is to rack up as much mileage as possible; the three teams with the most mileage in the end will win some goodies!

So, you have the chance to burn some serious calories and complete your good deed of the week, all before noon on a Saturday. Sounds like a good plan to me.

Registration and payment will be handled at the event. If you’re interested, contact Balance Chestnut Hill or Indigo Schuy for more details.

$240 per team or $40 to join a team; Saturday November 23rd, registration begins at 9:15 a.m., Balance Chestnut Hill, 12 West Willow Grove Avenue, Philadelphia.
