Cycling For Good Burns Calories and Supports 4 Area Nonprofits
Pineapple Yoga + Cycle Studio, in collaboration with The Overton, an open-air restaurant located in the Rosemary district, is excited to announce its first collaboration to help raise awareness and funds for four local nonprofits in Sarasota.
Claudia Baeza, Owner of Pineapple Yoga + Cycling Studio and Christian Hershman, Owner of The Overton, have wanted to collaborate for some time. Both Claudia and Christian believe in giving back to the community. Their first event is an outdoor Cycling/Yoga fundraiser which will take full advantage of Overton’s oversized outdoor patio. Four rides are scheduled on the 28th of November with 14 seats available on each ride.
“My goal is to get outside and do good for the community that we love. Collaboration has always been my priority at the studio and working with Christian is an honor for me. Cycling is an activity that everyone can do and it is intended to bring everyone together in a safe outdoor environment in a socially distanced and responsible way.” – Claudia Baeza, Owner, Pineapple Yoga + Cycling Studio.

The Overton in the Rosemary District and Pineapple Yoga + Cycling Studio join forces for good on November 28th starting at 1 pm. Join Pineapple Yoga Studio’s Spinning instructors at the Overton open courtyard to raise funds for some of your favorite nonprofits in town.
Each instructor will lead a 50-minute OUTDOOR class (30 mins of spin and 20 mins of yoga stretch) to help raise funds for an SRQ nonprofit. There are 14 bikes available for each ride. Each rider/supporter is asked to sponsor a seat at a minimum of $100. Our hope is to raise a minimum of $1,400 for each nonprofit. You can cycle on your own or you can team up and rally!
In addition, The Overton will donate a percentage from the day’s food and beverage sales, so please support them on Saturday November 28th.
100% of proceeds will go to each charitable organization to support its important mission and work.
