January is a distant memory, and summer feels impossibly far away.
There’s snow on the ground, after all. Maybe you’ve lost all motivation to exercise. If so, perhaps fashion and charity will inspire you to get off the couch and over to Wellesley’s B/SPOKE at 50 Central St.
The indoor cycling studio hosts a R/DE (ride, get it?) for Impact class and fashion show on Wednesday, March 21. Proceeds from the $28 indoor cycling event go toward Dress for Success, which provides professional attire to women in need. After the ride, mingle at a fashion show spotlighting the new spring line from Peach activewear while sipping cocktails.
Plus, guests get 10 percent off Peach’s apparel — flattering leather-style leggings (appropriate for workout or brunch), printed bras and matching capris, tunics, joggers, and more.
Can’t drag yourself out on a weekday evening? Stop by the B/SPOKE studio through March 22 to visit Peach’s pop-up retail shop.
The ride starts at 6:30 p.m., and the fashion show begins at 7 p.m.
