LOCAL health club Anytime Fitness Solihull is encouraging the local community to pedal for pounds this weekend with a charity bike challenge in Mell Square for Acorns Children’s Hospice.
The new health club will have two of its cycle spin bikes outside Vita Café in Mell Square from 10.30am on Saturday morning and is setting the people of Solihull the challenge of cycling 204 miles during the day.
All money raised from their efforts will go directly to Acorns Children’s Hospice and support the great work it does in providing specialist palliative care for life limited and life threatened babies, children and young people.
Shaquille Pabani, owner of Anytime Fitness Solihull, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Acorns Children’s Hospice with our cycling challenge this coming weekend.
“As a locally owned club, we want to give back as much as we can to the local Solihull community wherever possible and we’re looking forward to seeing people cycling for an incredibly worthy cause this weekend.
“The support we’ve received since the start of June has been amazing and we’re hoping to do plenty more fun events for the local community in the future.”
The 204-mile distance was chosen as it reflects the round-trip distance from Anytime Fitness Solihull to all Anytime Fitness clubs in the West Midlands and back.
The charity cycling challenge will be run in collaboration with Tap & Tandoor Indian Bar and Grill, Vita Café and Greens Cocktail Lounge, whose staff will also be jumping on the bikes throughout the day to help pedal the way to the total.
