Anyone who has ever exercised with a buddy knows that workout partners can motivate us to power through those last five minutes. We’re sure that’s what the dozens of attendees to Tuesday evening’s Supermodel Cycle event at NY spinning studio SoulCycle had in mind.
The mostly male crowd shelled out $1,000 to $2,500 to spin alongside Victoria’s Secret AngelsAlessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Erin Heatherton and Lindsay Ellingson. In an ingenious turn, organisers determined each attendee’s price based on proximity to the models, who wore cropped tees and leggings instead of their skimpier VS catwalk fare.
Aldridge, for one, was a little nervous before her first spinning experience. ‘I don’t do much cardio, mostly dancing at concerts,’ the supermodel/rock-star wife told WWD.
The event raised a total of $200,000 for Pelotonia, a cyclist-oriented cancer research charity.
