The wheels are turning in celebs' bid to support Hurricane Sandy victims.

Kelly Ripa, Alec Baldwin and Brooke Shields helped raise $100,000 for relief efforts as part of a cycle-for-a-cause benefit, per Us Weekly.

The event, called SoulCycle's Soul Relief Rides and held this past weekend in New York City, brings much-needed aid to storm victims, and its celeb participants couldn't have been happier to sweat it out for charity.

"The Sandy relief fundraiser was important to me because two weeks later there are people in Staten Island, Far Rockaway and Long Beach, N.Y., who still do not have power, water and basic essentials," Ripa said in a statement.

The event also provided a big plus for the charming TV host: "I love to exercise, therefore if my workout benefits the Mayor's Fund, it's a win-win!"

A win-win, indeed.

Here's what else went down:

Ridin' on His Hog: Justin Bieber was spotted riding a snazzy Ducati motorcycle and hanging out with Ashley Olsen

Just Kidding: It looks like teen bride Courtney Stodden won't be showing off her skills at The Abbey after all. 

No Babies Here: Country crooners Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert took to Twitter to slam pregnancy rumors.

Um, Who Is This? Lindsay Lohan was a guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and looked, er, interesting.
