If you've ever wanted to surround yourself with supermodels while working out, you're in luck: The SoulCycle in Tribeca is partnering with Victoria's Secret and all of their ridiculously gorgeous models for a charity bike ride. On July 12th, you can feel a little bit bad about your body image next to Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, and others, as you bike for a good cause.
All of the proceeds from the event will go towards Pelotonia, an organization dedicated to eliminating cancer. Victoria's Secret will also be matching every dollar raised, and if you bike—and bid—really hard, you could win some prizes. The goodies include a photo-op with one of the models and a pair of angel wings. Because let's face it, you probably want those for one thing or another.
You can sign up for the event here, but keep in mind that attendance is costly. There's four levels of participation, each with its own price tag: Bronze is $1,000 (which is already sold out), silver is $1,500, gold is $2,000, and platinum is $2,500. If you can't imagine getting up on a bike next to someone whose body measurements are a little too mindblowing, you can always donate here.
