Biking for charity

Riding a bike is good exercise—a 130-pound person can burn about 470 calories an hour biking at a moderate pace—and it can be a feel-good activity, too.

Many charities now use bike races to raise funds and awareness, while also helping riders with training. With so many events at all distances, skill levels, and locations, it should be easy to find the right ride for you, whether you want to fight hunger, raise money for a cure, honor a loved one, or just get in shape and make a difference.
