More than 100 people gathered at the Wilder Center in St. Paul for a day of biking, teamwork, and friendly competition.

For the second year, Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare and United Cerebral Palsy of Minnesota hosted “Pedal In Place,” a stationary bike race.

Unlike traditional bike races, the participants didn’t cross a finish line; instead they "Pedaled In Place."

The participants pedaled in place for 20 minutes each, took a 10-minute break to rest and log miles for the team before the next rider began. A total of eight teams took part.

Minimum pledges for a team to race was $1,000. All proceeds will benefit Minnesotans who have cerebral palsy and other disabilities.
