Cadence Cycling Studio to attempt Guiness World Record

Maddy Lloyd

Cadence Ferrymead Cycling Studio will attempt to break the 25-hour record for the longest static cycling class.

The studio is raising money for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter with its world record breaking attempt.

Te Rangimaria Ngarimu said the the idea came about to get the studio's name out there.

"We tried to get someone on board that we could fundraise with, so Westpac jumped on board and were really pleased with us doing the fundraising for them."

The class will start at 9am on April 29 and go until 10am the next day. One Instructor has to complete the whole 25 hours, and the studio has to have at least 10 people starting and finishing the class.

General Manager for the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust Rachael McNutt said the initiative was incredible.

"We are just absolutely stoked. It means a huge amount to us that people are willing to raise money."

Te Rangimaria said it would be both a mental and physical challenge for the riders.

"At this stage we don't have a fundraising goal, I think whatever we make we'll be happy with to give to the Westpac Rescue Helicopters."
