New Saline business to host fundraising 'Ryde-a-thon'

By Lisa Allmendinger

A new business in Saline called Ryde On Cycling Studio plans to hold a charity bike-a-thon to support programs for cyclists with disabilities.

The four-hour charity event is a first for the business at 450 East Michigan Ave. and takes place from 2-6 p.m. Feb. 11 inside the studio. It will benefit Programs to Educate All Cyclists, an Ypsilanti charity founded in 2004 by John Waterman. The program provides cycling classes to people with disabilities and those who wish to act as their trained cycling companions.

The indoor cycling fundraiser is open to community members, and riders commit to cycling for one 50-minute cycling session with a certified cycling instructor. Riders participate in teams of four.

The event is also sponsored by Performance Bike Shop, Bearclaw Coffee and Afternoon Delight.

RydeOn Cycling Studio opened in October 2011 and is co-owned by Saline-area residents Brigid Lossing and Christina Turner.

For more information or to register, go to the RydeOn website or call Lossing at 734-649-7558.
