Bike for Bookies with SoulCycle

Do you like books, biking, and giving back?? We are VERY excited to announce that our Bike for Bookies event with SoulCycle, the revolutionary indoor cycling gym, will take place on August 8th @ 2pm at the West Hollywood SoulCycle Studio!!


We are riding to help raise funds for our new Leaders + Readers Book Drive Program, getting kids in Title 1 schools in the LAUSD new and gently used children’s books that they desperately need. Since January we have already raised 55,800 books and worked with 30 LA area schools! Now, we need YOU to help us reach our goal of getting 100,000 books into LA area schools this fall!! How? By rallying your friends and family to support and sponsor you as a Bike for Bookies rider!! With Leaders + Readers, every $1 equals one book!!



If you are interested in being a rider at this event, please email events@milkandbookies.org for more information and details on how to sign up! Hurry!! Spaces are limited!!
