Go for a Round with the Victoria's Secret Angels

What's the secret to keeping a Victoria's Secret body? If you ask Candice Swanepoel (left), her answer just might include spinning. Along with fellow Victoria's Secret angels Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Erin Heatherton and Lindsay Ellingson, Swanepoel will be taking part in a special "Supermodel Cycle" tonight at SoulCycle's spinning studio in TriBeCa. The one-time event is a benefit for Pelotonia, a charity devoted to ending cancer. Sadly,seats don't come cheap (prices range from $1,000 to $2,500), but then again, how often do you get to ride with angels?  


A Good Turn, Turn, Turn

Chelsea Clinton and her father, Bill, will be at SoulCycle in Bridgehampton this weekend for a high-adrenaline benefit for the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. The spinning studio, which opened in the Hamptons this summer, is already a huge hit among fitness-crazed celebs, and made such a big splash in Bridgehampton that it's often difficult to secure a bike on weeekends. That will not be a problem tomorrow--providing you've ponied up anywhere from $500 to $5,000 for a one-hour ride benefitting the charity founded by Presidents #40 and #41.

If those two former commanders in chief can get it together for a cause, you can certainly get it together to spin for an hour. This is no time for resistance. Do it!

Spinout at Grand Central

Thousands of cyclists hopped on bikes in Vanderbilt Hall this evening to take part in a twenty-four hour spinning marathon that raised money to support HeathCorps, an organization mounting an awareness campaign about childhood obesity. Every hour from 7 a.m. this morning through 7 a.m. tomorrow morning, New Yorkers signed up to sweat in Vanderbilt Hall, surround by baffled commuters. A batch of local celebrities took part as well, including Rapper Grandmaster Melle Mel; former Bachelor Jesse Palmer; Good Day New York’s Anne Craig; The Early Show’s Dave Price; Miss USA Rachel Smith; Chef Rocco DiSpirito; Schools Chancellor Joel Klein; Miss Teen USA Hilary Cruz; The Naked Cowboy; The Biggest Loser’s Bill Germanakos (Season Four victor); and The Apprentice’s Kwame Jackson.
