The Annual Bridges for Music charity cycle event, which is a tradition for Bridges for Music, Beatport, and Pioneer DJ. Some of the world’s top DJs, music executives, promoters, and other industry figures will cycle on Tacx Neo Smart Trainers with the latest Garmin computers, Garmin Edge 1030 Plus. They will be installed in some of the world’s most iconic music venues around the world, including Watergate (Berlin), Ministry of Sound (London), the ADE Headquarters at the Felix Meritis (Amsterdam), the Bridges Academy in Langa (Cape Town) and Los Angeles to participate in an 8-hour virtual relay race.
Some of the international teams and riders already confirmed include Armada, Defected, Awakenings, Richie Hawtin, Pan-Pot, Gigee, Rebekah, Floyd Lavine, Juliet Fox, and Goldfish. With DJ guest sets from some of South Africa’s hottest names Themba and Lady Z as well as other international guests.
The venues and riders will be connected through the virtual cycling app Zwift to complete an 8-hour cycling relay via a unique stream that will be powered by Beatport. The event will also raise funds for the Bridges for the Music program to help provide quality education to youth in underserved communities in South Africa.
The fundraiser is sponsored by Pioneer DJ. Looking forward to the event, the brand’s General Manager in EMEA, Mark Grotefeld, said, “We are really honored to have been a founding sponsor of Bridges For Music, and we completely endorse their noble mission of uncovering, developing, and nurturing the latent and untapped talents of the underprivileged.”
Dance music fans who want to ride with their DJs from their own home can follow along via their Zwift account and a smart turbo trainer or via www.cycleformusic.com or through the Zwift App. Just choose the artist you want to ride with on the Zwift App and share the fundraising page link to help raise funds for South African students.
