How many riders does it take to set a new indoor bike record?
Posted Feb 23 2009 9:33pm
412 cyclists---that' s the new world record for the largest amount of people to ride an indoor cycling bike.
Employees at a British gym chain (
Esporta Health Clubs) broke the World record at their annual conference in Gloucestershire.
Esporta’s CEO, Glenn Timms, said: “Indoor cycling is one of the most
popular of the 3,500 classes that are organised each week at Esporta’s
55 clubs across the UK and is something that we consider ourselves
specialists in. It’s high-tempo, high-energy and instructor-led, which
creates an incredibly motivating environment that helps people get the
most out of their workout. We are delighted to have reclaimed our
Guinness World Record."
"This is the
second time the health and fitness chain has broken the record
in less than a year. The first attempt, which took place on 28 February 2008, involved
323 staff and lasted five
months before being broken in July by a gym in Valencia, Spain, and then
again at a trade exhibition in Toronto, Canada."
