GritCycle Celebrates Sixth Location and Gritty Up Fundraiser


GritCycle, Orange County’s most popular, community-based boutique indoor cycling centers, continues to expand with its sixth location opening in Ladera Ranch. Other GritCycle locations include Costa Mesa, Monarch Beach, Long Beach, Anaheim Hills, and Huntington Beach. In celebration, GritCycle plans to make its 6th Annual Gritty Up fundraiser for the John Wayne Cancer Foundation the biggest to date.

GritCycle’s Gritty Up fundraiser includes a party and auction and a three-hour indoor cycling ride to support the John Wayne Cancer Foundation in its mission to improve outcomes for cancer patients and save lives through cancer research, education, awareness, and support. This year’s event falls just after what would have been John Wayne’s 112th birthday (May 26) and just before the 40th anniversary of his passing (June 11).

On Friday, May 31, the 6th Annual Gritty Up Auction + Party at the Lido House Hotel in Newport Beach will unite all of the fundraising event’s participants, sponsors, volunteers, family and friends for an evening of cocktails, dancing and live and silent auctions.

There will also be a performance by a musical guest, Jerrod Niemann, to kick off the evening, followed by DJ Trust to close out the night.

Then, on Saturday, June 1, GRIT Cycle will host the Gritty Up Ride (also at the Lido House Hotel) where 100 teams of cyclists — who have been raising funds for more than one month prior to the Ride — will complete a three-hour indoor cycling class. After last year’s impressive $373,000 raised, the goal for 2019 is $400,000.

Tickets for the 2019 Gritty Up are on sale now. To purchase tickets and for more information on sponsoring, fundraising and the second day of the event (“The Ride” on Saturday, June 1),  visit

For those also participating in “The Ride” portion of Gritty Up, the Lido House Hotel is offering discounted room rates for Friday night which can be booked here.
