Trenton Wright, coordinator of Institutional Advancement at Middlesex Community College, attempted to set a new world record for “Farthest Distance on a Static Cycle” on Friday, December 5. He managed to cycle 235.5 miles in six hours. No record existed previously for six hours on a stationary bike.
Through this world record attempt, Wright raised almost $2,000 for the Middlesex Community College Foundation, which benefits students and programs at the College.
Wright is submitting his world record attempt to the Guinness World Records and results will take approximately 12 weeks for approval.
