Lurie Children’s Pedalpalooza is a virtual cycling experience that challenges participants to ride 100 miles in the month of June while fundraising for Lurie Children’s. Participants are encouraged to cycle indoors or safely on the road and can log 100 miles in one day, a weekend or over the course of the month. Pedalpalooza was designed for avid cyclists who want to challenge themselves as well as for families, indoor cyclists and new riders. We’ll provide the tools you need to fundraise, as well as support with planning your personal 100-mile experience. Throughout the month, there will be opportunities to experience special virtual events, participate in group Peloton rides, tackle smaller mileage challenges, earn exclusive incentive merch and celebrate your impact on the patients at Lurie Children’s.
Solo participants will individually track their miles with a goal of logging 100 miles in the month of July. Families can track miles together with a combined 100-mile goal. There will be virtual events, challenges and updates throughout the month so stay tuned for a more detailed schedule.
How do I track my miles?
You can track your mileage using the Lurie Children’s Pedalpalooza app.
This year, all of our riders will have access to a free mobile app to track your miles! This will include a leaderboard to show how you stack up against other riders and progress towards your 100 mile goal. Even though this wasn’t available until July 20, it will sync with your fitness activity and you can also manually enter rides you’ve already completed. Click below to download the app for your mobile device!
But the good news is, we have a great “Plan B”. If you're itching to track miles immediately and don't want to wait, please join our Strava Club by clicking the link HERE. Strava is a fitness tracking app that is free to use. You can use this app to track your miles in the meantime and see how you stack up against the rest of the event. It's also very easy to connect Strava to Peloton.
Here are the prizes from last year's event. Check back for further details!
