Pedal for Prevention


Pedal for Prevention, created by Expresso Fitness and the American Diabetes Association, is the first-ever virtual ride-a-thon, taking place in conjunction with National Diabetes Awareness Month. To participate visit www.expresso.net. There you can create your own personal pledge page, find participating gyms and then raise money by logging miles on Web-enabled Expresso Bikes at the gym of your convenience between November 2 and November 16.

Expresso will track riders' mileage and the total funds raised by each rider. 100% of the proceeds from Pedal for Prevention will go to the American Diabetes Association. The goal of Pedal for Prevention is to educate Americans on the importance of exercise in managing and preventing type 2 diabetes, especially the 23.6 million Americans living with diabetes and 57 million with pre-diabetes.

Take care,
Lynn Smythe AKA the Bike Diva
