What To Expect as a Participant

What To Expect as a Participant

Join an existing team, choose to ride extreme, or register for the virtual event.


In-Person Rides

Each bike registered to your team can accommodate four to eight people who will ride relay-style during your four-hour event. Events are broken up into one-hour blocks, and our Equinox cycling instructors and event emcees will announce when we’ve reached the halfway point and end of each block so you know when to switch riders. You and your teammates can decide how long each person will be on a bike. This will depend on the number of bikes you have registered and how many people join your team.

All 2024 in-person rides will take place indoors. If you are unable to join us in-person, the virtual event offers a way to get involved — no matter where you are.

Virtual Event

The virtual event will feature a four-hour live cycling experience led by SoulCycle instructors. The ride will air on Saturday, March 9, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET on Equinox+, the official on-demand fitness and lifestyle app from Equinox. If you cannot join live, your registration for the virtual event will include complimentary access to Equinox+ through April 15 so you can replay the ride on-demand. You’ll also be able to explore other great Equinox instructor-led Cycle for Survival classes on the app. You can participate in the virtual event as part of a team or as an individual.


Going Extreme

Way to go! As an Extreme participant, you’re making a powerful commitment. You’ll ride for all four hours of your event, and you must meet a minimum fundraising requirement of $4,000. Extreme riders are also recognized on event day for their dedication and generosity.

Fundraising pages will remain open through April 15, 2024, so you can even continue to push for donations after your ride.

Every dollar you raise funds rare cancer research at MSK. Each person on your team will have an individual fundraising page, and your team will have a team fundraising page that will show your team’s collective fundraising total.

You and your teammates can earn exclusive Cycle for Survival x Vuori gear through your fundraising efforts, plus other exciting benefits! You’ll also have access to matches and challenges throughout the Cycle for Survival season to help you reach — and exceed — your goals.
