LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

CycleBar is hosting their first CycleGiving ride with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Red Cross North Texas Chapter, responsible for accommodating more than 4,000 evacuees from the recent Louisiana floods.

The Red Cross is launching a massive response to the floods in Louisiana, with the costs currently estimated to be above $10 million. 

When asked about the fund-raising ride, owner Michelle Elder said, "We have been so humbled by the record-setting successful opening of the new studio. We simply couldn't wait to start giving back! When we witnessed the heartache of thousands of flood victims, we were inspired to offer our community a true win/win opportunity to get in shape while doing the right thing for our displaced neighbors."

The 50-minute dynamic class will cost $25 per person and will take place in the CycleTheatre located at 7604 Milwaukee Ave on Friday, August 26th at noon.

The CycleTheatre features tiers for 47 bikes with LED lighting, wide-screen graphics and state-of-the-art audio from the DJ booth. Riders can track their performance data via CycleStats and can download music used in the fund-raising ride. After class, riders will be treated to fresh fruit and enhanced water.  

Space is limited. To help raise funds for flood victims, riders are encouraged to reserve their bike today at http://lubbock.cyclebar.com/.
