Newcastle in a Record Breaking Spin
What do you get when you cross spin bikes with crazy costumes and high energy music? Why, the 6th annual Variety Spin 4 Kids Newcastle of course! 22 teams joined in the fun at The Betting Rings at Newcastle Racecourse (the rain wasn’t stopping us) and 7 virtual teams kept the pedals spinning across Newcastle in our record breaking 2022 event.
During the day our teams cycled an astonishing 4556.5km to support kids in need. Check out the final kilometre tracker here.

The Newcastle Racecourse – for being our saviours as our outstanding wet weather venue.

Although we didn’t get the pleasure of spinning there this year we also thank The Station for being part of the Spin 4 Kids family.
Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group (NCIG) – as our Presenting Partners for the fifth year, we are in awe of your incredible support of Variety and your commitment to helping kids in need.
