How to Ruff Ride

Ruff Ride is the only event of its kind in the country, but your mission is simple. Your team signs up and is assigned to a BPM Fitness spin bike. You may register as many or as few team members as you’d like. Beginning at 11am on May 31, your team is responsible for keeping your assigned bike spinning for 24 consecutive hours.

Teams will be able to track, compare and compete against one another with our live score board on a 25 x 25 foot screen at Commerce Square. There will be music, food, drinks and competitions throughout the entire 24-hour event.

Each rider must register. Each team must raise at least $1,000.

All funds raised to go support Team Foster. Team Foster raises money to partner service dogs with tri-state area veterans suffering from combat-related disabilities including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). We ensure these dogs are obtained, cared for, and provided a special training team—all at no cost to our veterans.

Prizes will be awarded for top individual and team fundraisers as well as Ruff Ride MVP.
