Star Trac Bike Breaks Guinness World Record

(no)

Irvine, CA — Star Trac's Spinner NXT recently helped set a new Guinness World Record. The six-person New York Sports Club Cadence/Cycling team used the bikes as they established a new record for most miles traveled on a single stationary bike in 24 hours. The record was broken at the New York Sports Clubs Saints and Spinners event, a 24-hour Spin-a-thon at Grand Central Terminal in New York. The team cycled a total of 829.84 miles at an average pace of 34.58 miles per hour, breaking the previous record of 595.17 miles at 25 miles per hour, set in 2006.

Star Trac shipped 100 of its Spinner NXT bikes for the ride, which raised more than $250,000 for HealthCorps, a nonprofit organization founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz who appears as a health expert on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” The organization is devoted to fighting teen obesity.
