Originally planned to be held on June 29, CanTeen have extended the timeline for the event in order to give more people and businesses time to join the cycling extravaganza, expected to be the biggest indoor event of its kind ever held in New Zealand.
The Crank will see up to 200 indoor bikes, donated for the event by Les Mills, fill The Cloud on Queens Wharf.
A team of Les Mills' superstar instructors will lead riders through 12 hours of cycling, finishing with a celebration inside the Cloud on Friday evening.
CanTeen chief executive David Pearce says CanTeen is delighted cyclists of Ethan and Sam's calibre are joining The Crank event.
"We are thrilled Ethan and Sam are helping out with this event, especially so soon after the intensity of the London Olympics and their ongoing training commitments," he says.
"Ethan finished a fantastic fifth in the Team Sprint event at London and Sam was a reserve for the team and both are among the country's top young cyclists."
David Pearce says The Crank will be a fun and challenging way to support young people living with cancer and reflects CanTeen's values of living life to the fullest.
"Whether you're a top sports person like Ethan and Sam, simply sports mad or maybe more used to sitting at your desk on a Friday, The Crank is a fun and safe way to exercise and maybe even get a little competitive with your teammates," he says.
CanTeen is the only New Zealand peer support organisation for young people aged 13 to 24 living with cancer as a patient, sibling or bereaved sibling.
Entries are now open for The Crank for corporate, social and school teams of between 6 - 12 riders to take part in the biggest indoor cycling meet the country has ever seen.
