Mission’s Cycling4Diversity is hosting a 24-hour spin-a-thon at The Fitness Lab.

The event begins at noon, Aug. 21, and finishes the following day. It will be led by founder Coun. Ken Herar and co-hosted by Mike Bismeyer, with guests joining in the virtual conversation throughout.

Cycling4Diversity celebrated its 10-year anniversary in May, by hosting Spinning4Diversity, a five-day virtual event.

“We have many different voices wishing to participate this time which were unable to do so in May. We’re opening up a full day for anyone who wishes to spin and share their positive message in 45 minute time slots,” Herar said.

“We welcome all levels of riders as the event is focused on the conversation not physical endurance. Anyone with mobility or participation challenges please message S4D and we will ensure your needs are accommodated.”

Pre registration is required to join in the free event as an individual, family, groups, co-workers or organizations. Contact for more details.

“Diversity discussion are not solely about racism or division. I see this as a community building exercise highlighting the many strengths, positive stories and people that make up our neighbourhoods and communities,” Herar said.

“If you have an inspiring story or suggestions on how to diversify our community, we encourage you to join us … When we’re privy to many different stories, we realize our commonality rather than our differences.”
