Interactive Fitness will also present awards on Wednesday, March 6th to the two winners of the first College Interactive Cycling Challenge, as well as the Top 5 All American Schools in each Division Throughout the month of February, Interactive Fitness sponsored the first-ever College Interactive Cycling Challenge. Competition was heated nationwide as riders across the country compete head-to-head and virtually with each other. The College Interactive Cycling Challenge began on February 1st, and continued through February 28th. Students, faculty, and staff from around the country represented their colleges, and conferences of all divisions and sizes. Thousands of riders from 71 colleges and universities rode on Expresso Bikes and competed in the College Interactive Cycling Challenge. They have ridden over 113,350 miles and burned more than 3,984,505 calories, and have shared over 2,236 rides through Facebook and Twitter.
The competition was divided into two divisions – Division I, which competed for the most “Total Miles” plus bonus points, and Division II, which competed for the most “Total Miles per Bike” plus bonus points. Each competing school earned one point for every mile ridden on their Expresso Bike, the world’s best and most motivating cardio experience, connected by the Internet for virtual competition anytime, anywhere. All teams competed in both divisions and riders earned bonus points by sharing their workouts through Facebook or Twitter. The winning schools from each division have been awarded a brand-new Expresso Bike – a $7,000 value.
Rapidly gaining fans at dozens of colleges across the nation, the Expresso Bike from Interactive Fitness is an exciting new way to engage students and members. Well beyond a stationary bike, the Expresso Bike from Interactive Fitness is the one product that does it all. It enables riders to experience full virtual reality, as they ride through over 40 different “worlds,” ranging from a one-mile speed course to a 20-mile mountain climb.
And it keeps the riders “social” -- every Expresso Bike is connected via the Internet, enabling riders to share their rides, and compete “virtually”
This is the bike that motivated a young woman at Colorado Mountain College to ask, “Why is this bike so much fun?” That testimonial was collected off the “Team Chat” page for the Expresso Bike on Facebook (also available on Twitter).
Every Expresso Bike features state-of-the-
