This will be our 6 week cycling challenge for the Northeast YMCA. We will be virtually traveling through Tuscany. We will start in Pienza and ride to Florence. Our members will have weekly mileage goals and will receive a magnet at the end of the challenge. At the end of each week, members that achieve their weekly goal will be entered into a weekly drawing to receive Y swag.

Members can achieve their mileage in class, in the wellness center, outdoors, or at home.
