24 Indianapolis Event

Beginning at 7:00pm on June 29th, and continuing until 7:00pm June 30th, the 24 Foundation is hosting their annual 24-hour fundraising event to raise funds for the IU Health Simon Cancer Center and Franciscan Health Cancer Center Indianapolis. It will take place on Butler’s campus, and the 2.7-mile loop will run through Butler Tarkington Neighborhood.

Formerly known as 24 Hours of Booty, this foundation was formed with “a goal to change the conversation about cancer and inspire communities to make an immediate impact on the lives of people affected by cancer.” This event is non-competitive, safe, and open to all levels of cyclists.

Those who are interested are able to sign up as an individual or as a part of a team. The current team Cycling Club is associated with is “Brandon’s Melahomies.” If you are planning to be a part of a team, please make note that you are responsible for meeting the fundraising minimum in order to participate. As current registration stands, university riders have a registration fee of $35.00 and fundraising minimum to meet of $100.00.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at hhuelsma@butler.edu. I hope to see as many of you out there!

25k Team Relay @ The Loft

We’ve been fortunate enough to have Phoenix Fitness and Training in Broad Ripple supply Butler Cycling with amazing Computrainer lessons throughout the winter and early spring seasons. Now it’s time to put our training to the test with the On Tap Four Man or Woman TTT Challenge!

This event takes place on March 8th, 2018, starting at 5:15pm. The course will feature seven miles of flat terrain with 2.1 miles of climbing. No climbs will be longer than half a mile at a time. All of the riding will be done on Computrainers at Phoenix. Riders across all fitness levels are strongly encouraged to join!

A designated team captain is able to reserve one of the remaining slots for the event for themselves and three teammates via The Loft’s Mindbody scheduling site. Cost to enter is $50 per team (covered by Butler Cycling). If interested in signing up, please contact me at hhuelsma@butler.edu. Questions about the event itself may be directed to dejongj1@gmail.com or heather@pftindy.com.


Spring Training!

Hello all!
With the semester coming into full swing, is highly encouraged that everyone begins going to Phoenix indoor training classes, either individually or with the club. Signing up for classes is done through Phoenix’s MindBody accounts, which many of you signed up for late last semester. Everyone registered on the MindBody website should be receiving weekly emails from Phoenix with class descriptions and open spots. You are more than welcome to attend these classes on your own, or text the group about times you would prefer to go (Tuesday and Thursday evening classes would be great opportunities for you to come in. There are spaces during the double classes on Wednesday, but those classes tend to fill up more quickly).
If you should have any questions about this email, or Cycling Club in general, please email me directly at hhuelsma@butler.edu.
Happy Cycling!
