Debut: Spin Streaming Studio

August 5, 2020

Stay Safe | Keep Training | Our Digital Spin Studio is Online!

Spin’s #1 rule of the pandemic is “Stay Safe, Be Courteous”. 

Spin’s #2 rule is “Pivot. Pedal. Pedal.”

In our mounting experience, both are a lot easier when we work with our community. 

So, in an epic effort to keep connected with all of you — our cherished Spinners — we’ve built a film studio.

The Spin For Life Streaming Studio has been borne out of the generosity of a number of our partners and sponsors. They’ve provided everything from camera and computer equipment to lights and audio gear, even the bike we’ll be leading our training sessions from. This effort has taken a village!

Spin's Streaming Studio is generously furnished by these partners

What to Expect...

Leading up to the Spin 2020 event we’ll be bringing you training and cancer information sessions. Everything will be free to access. It’ll be live on Facebook and Vimeo and then on-demand to access any episode at any time.

The training sessions will be led by a wide range of spin and cycling instructors representing some of Canada’s top indoor cycling studios. 

Episodes will feature music from different community artists and focus on Canadian Cancer Society programs supported by your efforts through Spin For Life. Each episode will be brought to you by one of our amazing sponsors.

If you have a bike at home, this is a great way to train.

If you simply tune in to connect with Spin's cancer community, great!

Inclusive

Spin For Life values inclusion and removing barriers to entry for participation; any skill level, beginner to pro, is encouraged to join. There’s no need for any special equipment or gear – alongside 180 spin bikes, Spin For Life is equipped with low-impact floor and arm pedal machines. Spinners are in a controlled indoor environment where the risk is low, medical support is always close-at-hand, and the weather won’t affect the experience. Our participants’ physical and fundraising commitments are also designed to be manageable challenges: one hour of sweat with a minimum $1,000 raised for charity.

Impactful

Thanks to our growing list of like-minded sponsors and patrons, 100% of donations stay with the Canadian Cancer Society. With each event, Spin For Life aims to raise a minimum of $1.44 million with new host cities being added every year for a ten year goal of $180 million. Tax receiptable donations can be allocated to any of three categories: Clinical Trials, Wheels of Hope, or the Alberta Cancer Research Fund (which was specially created to be funded by Spin For Life). Even in our first year, we are aiming to break the World Record for most money raised with a static cycling event.

Immersive

Over the course of eight hours, our Spinners will collectively ride the circumference of the world: 40,075 km. Each hour is themed around distinct global landscapes with LED screens, theatre lighting, and mapped projections transporting participants through a beautiful, challenging, and cathartic experience. Emcees and Instructors will lead the music-filled Spin Hours, introducing stories of cancer heroes, researchers, clinicians, and remembrances of those we have lost. All culminating in a world record ceremony and on-site after party when we finish spinning around the globe!
