This year, you can be participate in the LA Marathon without running a mile, let alone 26.2 miles! The Tour De Pier Pop-Up Presented by CycleBar Santa Monica– a new one-of-a-kind outdoor stationary cycling event – gives your front row access to all the action of the LA Marathon course while fundraising for cancer.
On Sunday, March 8, 2020, CycleBar Santa Monica and the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, an official charity of the LA Marathon, will host a fundraising event sure to energize and inspire runners and riders alike. CycleBar Santa Monica will bring their heart-pumping excitement with three 60-minute outdoor classes at 9:00am, 10:15am and 11:30am taught by the studio’s most popular teachers. Participants may ride one or more of the sessions.
Participants will get a taste of Tour De Pier, the award-winning outdoor stationary cycling cancer fundraiser that raised more than $1.5 million for cancer organizations last year. This unique opportunity to work up a sweat outside of the spin studio also affords a great view of the over 25,000 marathoners who pass by mile 21. For $95 per session, you reserve your spot on a bike, get a sweet participant swag bag, and be able to high-five runners as they pass!
The Tour De Pier Pop-Up Presented by CycleBar Santa Monica will take place at the Hirshberg Foundation’s official cheer station, the Purple People Party located on the median strip on San Vicente Blvd along mile 21 of the Los Angeles Marathon. Aptly named for the color of pancreatic cancer awareness, the cheer station is one of the most popular and energetic spots on the course. Volunteers, families, cancer survivors and spectators come to the Purple People Party to celebrate marathon day, enjoy music, hand out healthy treats, and cheer and energize runners on their way to the finish line.
Only 26 bikes will be available for each session and this is one ride you don’t want to miss.
