MIDTOWN, SOHO—Your average fancy fitness class will cost you about $30, but tomorrow, Bloomingdale's wants to give someone $1,000 just for pedaling on a bike for a few minutes. At both the 59th Street and Soho locations, hop on a stationery bike and pedal for one to three minutes, and you'll score a $10 bMoney card, as well as the chance to win a $1,000 gift card and two tickets to the amfAR Inspiration Gala. It's all in support of the Foundation for AIDS Research, to which the department store is donating $75,000.
NEW YORK CITY—And in more bike-related news: If you place an order on Outdoor Voices between 10am tomorrow and 12pm Friday—perhaps their new collab with Man Repeller?—an OV team member will personally bike your order over to you for same-day or next-day delivery, totally free. Still prefer to shop in person? Make an appointment to visit the Soho showroom.
