Our Charity Spinathon is Back
We are excited to announce that our charity Spinathon is back! Taking place on the 20th November between 1pm and 6pm we are asking our members to join us on the bikes to raise money for our members’ chosen charities; The MS Therapy Centre and The Tibbs Dementia Foundation.
There will be five consecutive 45-minute spin classes, with fifteen-minute breaks in between, led by our fantastic instructors.
The programme is as follows:
|1 - 1.45pm
|Get on the Bike
Warm up with Natalie, low endurance, a micro set of the classes to come.
|2 - 2.45pm

|Get into the Hills
Flat road hill into hill climb with Emma
|5 - 5.45pm
|Get to the Bar Recovery ride with Hazel and Louise, this will be a fun energetic class, all to disco music!
Each class will be suitable for beginners right through to experienced cyclists with levels available for all. The programme is designed for those doing all 5 classes but is also great for anyone who wants to join us for 1or 2.
During the classes refreshments will be provided and we would also like to invite everyone who takes part to a celebratory buffet in the Club Lounge afterwards, at around 6pm.
How to Get Involved
For those looking for that ultimate Spinathon experience we have a limited number of bikes available for members to join us for all 5 classes! This is a great opportunity to challenge yourself, be taught by 5 highly experienced instructors with 5 different class types and raise lots of money for charity at the same time.
There are just 15 “Ultimate Spin” packages available at a cost of £100, with every penny going to the two charities. As well as experiencing the spin classes themselves, members who sign up for this package also receive:
- A Club Towers Spinathon event t-shirt (see more info below).
- Chance to select your bike number /position.
- Drinks & refreshments such as electrolytes throughout the Spinathon
- A drink in the Club Lounge afterwards
- Celebratory buffet in the Club Lounge afterwards
If you would like to join in but can’t commit to 5 hours, you can join us for 1, 2, or 3 classes at £15 per class. We would very much like to fill every bike so whatever time (and energy!!) you can spare is greatly appreciated.
To book, please email Jo on [email protected] with your name, and which of the above classes you would like to book. Jo or Lottie will then be in touch to take your payment and confirm your place. Places are booked on a first come, first served basis.
Why we are doing It?
We are hoping to raise as much money as we can for local charities: the MS Therapy Centre and the Tibbs Dementia Foundation. Here’s a short overview about the very worthwhile work they both do.
The MS Therapy Centre is a self-help organisation, run by people with MS for people with MS. Established in 1983, the centre provides the therapies, services and support needed to enable people living with Multiple Sclerosis to self-manage their condition. The centre currently supports over 1,000 people across Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.
The Tibbs Dementia Foundation’s mission is to support local people to live as well and fully as possible with dementia in their lives, by offering support, information and a wide range of activities and social opportunities. Their model focuses on what people can do, supporting them to find their voice through a range of activities.
For those riders taking part, we would also encourage you to ask friends and family to sponsor you and we can provide a sponsorship form for you should you wish. Further details will be shared when you book your bike.
Instructors are giving their time for free to help us raise as much as possible (a great BIG thank you to them!) and the Club is covering all other costs, so all money made will go directly to the charities.
A special Club Towers Charity Spinathon t-shirt is designed for the event, as a memento of the day and our collective achievement.
The t-shirt will be available to buy for £15 with all profits going to the charities. If you want to buy one, please email to [email protected] to place your order and provide your size.
Please note that for your t-shirt to be ready for the event, you will need to order and provide your size by latest 4th November. If you miss the order deadline, we will have some t-shirts available on the event date for you to choose from but can’t guarantee your preferred size will be available. Or we can order in for you with delivery after the event.
We can’t wait to see you all on the bikes and to raise lots of money for our charities!
