Our friend Steve Stenzel (Steve in a Speedo)?! Gross) was one of the 1000 (no make that 1052) people who attended this crazy record breaking ride (no make that indoor spin class) and posted the video below to youtube.com

MINNEAPOLIS, Mar 07, 2010 -- Minneapolis' Target Center Arena was transformed into the world's largest cycling class today with the "Ride of a Lifetime." Hosted by Life Time Fitness , the event was officially certified as a new Guinness World Record(TM) by Guinness Official, Kimberly Partrick, who attended the event and made the live post-event proclamation.

The two-hour, high-energy Ride of a Lifetime was led by Life Time Fitness Chairman, President and CEO, Bahram Akradi, and top Life Time cycle instructors. Riders also were treated to music spun live by internationally renowned DJ, Roberto Costa. In total, 1,052 Life Time members and guests participated in the Ride and secured their place in history.

The event topped the previous record of 600 cyclists, which also was set by Life Time on January 9, 2010, in Houston, Texas. Prior to that, the record had been 450 cyclists, set on September 18, 2009, in Galway, Ireland.
