BurnCycle, a local cycling studio, is recognizing National Bullying Prevention month by offering free classes to teens and raising awareness of bullying.
This is the third year of BurnCycle Against Bullying, a campaign in conjunction with National Bullying Prevention month in October.
“Given what’s happening in the world currently and with kids back in school, it’s an important message to spread,” the studio tells My Ballard. “BurnCycle Against Bullying was created in recognition of the fact that everyone, between both their members and their team, has a bullying story.”
Part of the campaign includes a pledge in which the studio will ask riders to be upstanders, not bystanders. And, as a new component this year, they’re offering teens ages 14-18 free classes all month long. The studio says that, “empowering teens to move with their community will help them feel empowered and will show them the positive impact of a space where everyone belongs.”
BurnCycle is located at 2420 NW Market St.
