Registration for the most unique fundraising event in Southern California is now open. Stationary cyclists can sign up to ride in the award-winning 6th Annual Tour de Pier fundraiser held on Sunday, May 20 at the Manhattan Beach Pier & Strand. Thousands are expected to hit the iconic beachside pier to pedal and raise money for three cancer charities: the Hirshberg Foundation of Pancreatic Cancer Research, the Cancer Support Community Redondo Beach and the Uncle Kory Foundation. In 2017, the Tour de Pier broke fundraising records for the 4th consecutive year by raising more than $1.2 million for cancer research and aims to set another record by raising $1.5 million this year. Since the event’s debut in 2013, the Tour de Pier has raised more than $4.2 million.
The Tour de Pier brings one of the hottest indoor fitness activities – stationary cycling – to the gorgeous outdoors. 1,700 cyclists will be riding on 350 stationary bikes while overlooking the breathtaking Pacific Ocean. The area’s best instructors and celebrity guests will spin riders through five 50-minute sessions with energizing music and loads of excitement. In addition to cycling, there will be a FREE Health & Fitness Expo, a Cardio Kids Fun Zone with games and activities as well as entertainment.
