LADY GAGA is organising a charity cycle ride to raise awareness of body image issues.
The pop superstar launched her own charity, the Born This Way Foundation, earlier this year (12) to empower youngsters and stop bullying, and she recently won praise from campaigners for talking publicly about her own battles with eating disorders and self-esteem issues.
She is now stepping up her fight by teaming with Soul Cycle, a U.S. company which offers indoor cycle spinning classes, to put together a charity bike ride in aid of her foundation.
Lady Gaga has dubbed the event the Ride for Compassion and she is urging her fans to get in touch and share their ideas.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com, she writes, "I'm organising right now with Soul Cycle a Body Revolution cycling 'Ride For Compassion' with the BTW Foundation. Please send us your ideas... We want to know what is important to you in relation to body image and helping those w (with) disabilities. What do u (sic) want this ride to accomplish?"
