On June 9th 2018 Cyclewise Whinlatter is 10 years old!! Yes we know, proof that time flies when your having fun and talking of fun….....................
To celebrate and commemorate our decade at England’s finest trail centre and with the help of the Forestry Commission and British Cycling, we will be attempting a Guinness World Record for the “Most riders attempting a track stand at the same time”. The current world record is 250 but with your help we want to smash that number and are aiming for over 300 plus.
To beat the record all riders have to be able to trackstand at the same time for 10 seconds with both feet on the pedals….with no dabs. Simple!!
Here is our Nick showing you just how easy it is.
To help beat this record, Cyclewise coaches will be offering free track standing coaching sessions so that you can turn up on the day knowing that you have this most important biking technique in the skills bag.
Entry for this World Record attempt is FREE, however, we would like to request a £5 donation towards the Keswick and Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Teams with every donation receiving entry to win a signed Rachel Atherton Team Trek jersey or a Danny Hart signed Mondraker t-shirt.
So if you would like to help us celebrate our 10th Anniversary and fancy breaking a world record in 2018, are free at 10am on the 9th June 2018 and would like WIN a signed shirt from DH World Champions Danny Hart or Rachel Atherton complete our registration form by clicking the link below. Your £5 donation will be collected on the day where you will receive your official record number, which will also be your entry for the prize draw.
We are really keen to help you, help us make this happen, so we are providing FREE coaching to learn how easy it actually is to "Trackstand". Each session lasts for one hour and will be delivered from our Whinlatter shop. You just need a bike and a helmet.
