Happy New Year!

As you get back into the studio, after a great holiday season, you’ll notice Jen has gotten bigger and edging closer to her due date – January 24th! We decided to have some fun with that due date!

Amy B (who teaches Sat and Sun) created an super cute Guess the Date Calendar and we decided to make it a 50/50 draw! $5 per guess – date & time when Jen is going pop! The BEST guess wins 50% of the money and the rest will be donated to Sick Kids!

Take a guess the next time you’re in, or you might miss out!

On Sunday Nov 30th we’re finishing off our MOVEMBER CHALLENGE, with an amazing 3 HOUR Ride for Martin! Who is Martin you ask?

Well, Martin is a good friend of CYKL and also Kara’s husband (our fabulous instructor here). Martin was unfortunately diagnosed with brain cancer this year, and as a studio we want to help Martin and Kara!!! All proceeds of our 3 HOUR Ride on November 30th 12-3pm will go to Martin to help with his treatment and recovery. If you feel like you’d like to donate more than $30, please let us know and we’ll make sure you can!

Here’s more information about Martin and Kara!  Read the rest of this entry »

3 HOUR Ride for Martin

Back on Sept 19th, CYKL had an extra-sassy Body Break themed charity ride to support Jordan and his upcoming bike ride across Western Canada in support of Movember.

He’s looking to raise $100,000 for Movember – the moustache tooting Men’s Cancer charity, and he’s riding from Vancouver to Toronto with 2 other friends to reach his goal and spread awareness!

CYKL thought this was pretty awesome!!!! Cycling for a great cause is right up our ally! So, as Jordan embarks on his cycling adventure for the next month or so, CYKL will continue to support him by selling his Mo Ride Canada t-shirts for $25 (all proceeds go to Movember) in the studio. Pick one up today!

We’ll also be posting some of his highlights from his Mo Ride Canada Blog here too.

Go Jordan! GO Mo’ !

Mo’ Ride Across Canada

Author: admin | Filed under: Uncategorized

We looooooove seeing pictures of our brand new CYKL kits (jersey, shorts, even socks) being used in full force by our riders and instructors! Check out what our community has been up to these days!

Last weekend was the Ride to Conquer Cancer! Kim, John, Jess and loads of other CYKL riders took the challenge to raise $2500 (each) and ride from Toronto to Niagara Falls. It’s always such an epic event with over 5000 riders hitting the roads for such a great cause! It raised a record 19.1 million. Keep your eyes peeled for a 2014 Ride to Conquer Cancer CYKL Team.

Krista set her sights high with a 60 mile or 100km mountain bike race in Ohio called the Kenda Mohican 100 this year! After training all winter in the studio, and hitting the Epic 8 Hour early in the spring, she went down to Ohio feeling strong. Unfortunately the torrential rains made the track thick with mud, forcing her to walk many sections of the race. In end she finished 50/60 miles, bloody, muddy, beaten, and smiling! You’re a superstar!

The Ride for Heart! One of our favourite rides to do! Unfortunately the CYKL boss lady (Kim) and skipper (Jen), we’re not there due to wet weather and the fact that Jen can’t read a calendar. BUT there were all kinds of CYKL riders and instructors rocking the DVP and raising money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation on June 2nd! Way to go Steve, Ashleigh, Jess, Vince, Charlyn, Val and others!!!


The CYKL team!
