Cycle for a Cure!

Founded in 2007 by patient Jennifer Goodman Linn, Cycle for Survival is the indoor team cycling fundraiser that has raised more than $4.5 million in support of research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering.

Each year, thousands of cyclists team up with friends, family, and coworkers in the ride against cancer in New York City! We hope you’ll join us at a future event! You’ll have fun, you’ll be inspired, and above all, you’ll support vital research, bringing hope to people battling this deadly disease.

You can also support the cause with an online donation. We hope you can be part of this great day! For more information, visit http://www.cycleforsurvival.org.

Cycle for Survival is an indoor team relay ride. A team captain registers the team, recruits the team members, and then together they raise funds for lifesaving rare cancer research. Anyone can participate in Cycle for Survival! It doesn’t matter if you have never been on a bike or if you take weekly cycling classes. You can work out as hard (or as little) as you want! Remember, the bike is just the vehicle to achieve our end-goal – to provide hope through more and better treatment options for people with rare cancers.

All participants at Equinox events must be 18 years or older to participate. Equinox Events Teams: Each bike accommodates a team of from two to eight members, with most teams having four members. You can reserve up to six bikes at registration. Each bike must meet the minimum fundraising requirement for its location. It’s easy to reach the requirement if your team registers early and works together to raise funds. You’ll be surprised how quickly you meet – and surpass – your minimum fundraising requirement. Aim high! Relay Ride: Team captains are responsible for scheduling the rides on their team throughout the four-hour ride at the event. Please note that if you have more than four people on your team, riders will need to switch off mid-session. Equinox Fifth Avenue 521 Fifth Avenue (at 43rd Street) New York, New York 10175
