Second annual Biker-Barre + Bubbly Fundraiser Oct. 16

ZenRide Spinning Studio and the Bar Method Fairfield will present the 2nd Annual “Biker-Barre + Bubbly” to help raise awareness for Hydrocephalus, an incurable brain condition on Sunday, Oct. 16, at Fairfield spinning studio, ZenRide, 869 Post Road, Fairfield. At 4 p.m. there will be a spinning +bar method combo class; at 5 Bubbly + Bites and silent auction.

All proceeds will go directly to the Pediatric Hydrocephalus Foundation, Inc to fund research projects to identify alternate treatments for this condition which is estimated to affect 1 in 500 births in the United States.

Last year’s inaugural Biker-Barre + Bubbly event raised more than $18,000.

Fairfield resident Cindy Shanley, an instructor at both Zen Ride Spinning Studio and at the Bar Method Fairfield, has a 4-year-old daughter, Reagan, who suffers from hydrocephalus. Cindy and her husband Tim, PHF Connecticut State Chapter Directors, have been working to raise awareness of the condition and to ultimately find a cure since Reagan’s diagnosis. Hydrocephalus causes an abnormal amount of cerebral spinal fluid to build, widening spaces in the brain. It can cause increased pressure inside the skull, and can lead to brain damage, or if untreated can be fatal.

Cost is $40 donation to reserve a bike. Additional donations greatly appreciated.
