Victoria's Secret models cycle for cancer research

by /

Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes and Lily Aldridge led a team of Victoria's Secret angels in a supermodel fundraiser cycle on Wednesday.

"Here we come #SoulCycle!!! Riding for #Pelotonia! #JamesHospital! @VictoriasSecret @elsahosk," Lily tweeted.

The spinning event, held in New York, coincided with the annual ride in Columbus, Ohio and invited the public to cycle alongside the gorgeous angels.



Amongst the top model team stood Elsa Hosk, Gracie Carvalho, Lindsay Ellingson and Magdalena Frackowiak.

Kitted out in lycra leggings and their fundraiser tops, the girls were also joined by their instructor, Melanie Griffith, who coincidentally shares name with Antonio Bandera's actress wife.

"Just finished @victoriassecret #supermodelcycle with the AMAZING instructor @iamnowmellyG! @soulcycle..." model Lindsay wrote on Twitter.


The event on Wednesday was the third one-of-a-kind fundraiser the angels have organised in recent years with many of the girls participating in all three.

"I'm from Holland, so I'm used to always being on a bike—it comes very naturally to me. " Doutzen revealed.

Between New York and Ohio, participants range from cancer survivors, experienced cyclists, and those riding in memory of loved ones.


Tickets to the event range from $1500 to $2500 (£990 to £1650), with added exclusive VS goodies open to riders' bids at auction.

Last year the event raised over $200,000 (£132,000) with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Pelotonia.

Every year Pelotonia raises millions of dollars for cancer research. The charity is based at The Ohio State University and supports the Comprehensive Cancer Center – one of the world’s newest and most innovative cancer hospitals.

Earlier this year the Victoria's Secret angels got an insider's view of the complex which further motivated the team to cycle and raise money for the worthy cause.
