Register online for Cycle for Sight, an indoor team ride on stationary bikes. The event will raise funds to support research on the prevention, treatment and cure of blinding diseases, conducted by researchers affiliated with the McPherson Eye Research Institute.
Cycle for Sight will take place at the SERF (Southeast Recreational Facility) and Nat (Natatorium) on the UW-Madison campus and the Princeton Club on the west side of Madison. Cyclists team up with friends, family and coworkers, to ride with high-energy music, and with trained instructors leading the way. Anyone can participate, from beginners to advanced riders.
Team members cycle for 50 minutes each; teammates generally ride at the same time, unless otherwise requested. Workouts can be as challenging or as easy as the participants want.
