GRIDIRON Cycling, founded by Amani Toomer, retired pro football player and Super Bowl winner with the NY Giants and DeRosa I Gavia Cycling launch their “Ride 1, Give 1” Program, encouraging young people to become leaders in their communities through active participation in the cycling lifestyle.

The Program is being offered together with The New York Foundling’s Mott Haven Leadership Program.

Beginning October 1, 2017 each cycling class purchased and attended at Gavia Cycling’s studio in Englewood Cliffs, NJ will create a FREE class for the Program, scheduled to begin February 1, 2018.    

Free classes will be attended by students from The Haven Academy, a NY Foundling Charter School located in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. 

Leadership lessons will be offered using real life experiences and cycling principles as metaphors for living a healthy lifestyle.
