NZ's biggest indoor cycling effort for CanTeen

MEDIA RELEASE

15 July 2013

Calling all cycling enthusiasts - New Zealand’s biggest indoor cycling effort for CanTeen is about to get cranking

WHAT: The Crank – mass indoor RPM® cycling event and fundraiser for youth cancer charity, CanTeen.
WHERE: The Cloud, Auckland Waterfront
TIME: Friday 13 September, 6:00am to 6:00pm

Following last year’s inaugural event and back by popular demand, CanTeen is bringing its mass indoor cycling challenge, The Crank, to The Cloud in Auckland on Friday 13 September  With over 1,100 people taking part in 2012, CanTeen aims to get 1,500 cycling and fitness enthusiasts, corporates and sports teams involved in the challenge.

The Crank will see approximately 180 RPM® bikes, donated for the event by Les Mills, fill The Cloud on Queens Wharf.

A team of Les Mills’ superstar RPM instructors will lead riders through 12 hours of cycling.

CanTeen’s National Marketing Manager Kimberley Waters says The Crank 2012 was the first event of its kind in New Zealand and it’s a fun and challenging way to support young people living with cancer.

“We encourage anyone who’s up for a bit of hard work and sweat to get involved – it’s a fun and safe way to burn some calories, have a laugh, and enjoy some healthy competition with your work colleagues or mates,” says Ms Waters.

The event registration covers the cost to put on the event, so in order to raise money for CanTeen participants are encouraged to fundraise. The money raised will go towards educational, psychosocial and recreational activities aimed to support, develop and empower young people in New Zealand living with cancer.

CanTeen is the only New Zealand peer support organisation for young people aged 13 to 24 living with cancer as a patient, sibling or bereaved sibling.

Entries are now open to take part in the biggest indoor cycling event this country has ever seen. The Crank offers a 6-hour challenge, 12-hour challenge or you can take part as an individual.  Get your team of riders ready for some fat burning, adrenaline pumping, quad ripping RPM® cycling!
