Four levels of tickets to cycle alongside a supermodel were available for purchase. Participants also had the opportunity to bid on exclusive items as they cycled, including a pair of Angel wings and photo ops with their favorite Victoria’s Secret Angel.

Limited Brands, parent company of Victoria’s Secret, is a lead sponsor of Pelotonia. Every dollar raised at Supermodel Cycle will be matched by the Limited Brands Foundation which will bring the total donation to more than $200,000.

One hundred percent of the money raised for Pelotonia goes to The James, which is one of the nation’s leading cancer research facilities.

The announcement was made Wednesday, July 13.
