Why are we doing this?
1 - Raise awareness of mental health. We know all too well that depression and mental health can affect anyone with many feeling uncomfortable or refusing to discuss their own mental health. We want to raise awareness and help bring this topic to everday conversations and make people feel more comfortable communicating and discussing mental health in open forums.
2 - We want to help motivate people to achieve their goals and aspirations. We are not cyclists in any way, just two guys who want to have a go and fully believe that 'you don't have to be a pro to do something extraordinary'. Hopefully our achievement will inspire others to tackle their goals.
3 - As a world first this will also set a world record, something to be proud of and for others to strive to achieve.
About the Ride
Concept 2 are world renowned for creating indoor exercise facilities used for stationary world records such as rowing million metre records, but never has this feat been attempted on their bike.
Stipulations of the ride are that the flywheel of the bike cannot stop moving throughout the course of the ride and no others than myself and Jesse can use the machine.
Our estimates have us finishing the ride in 36-40 hours. We will be live streaming the entire process starting from 1am AEDT April 4.
