The indoor trainer marathon is turning out to be an annual event! Another winter is here, and Priority Health's cycling team and The Motion Initiative have teamed up again for this tradition on Saturday morning, Jan. 8.

During the event, youth and cycling team members ride trainers (equipment that turns bicycles into stationary bikes) in a loosely timed event to see who can ride the longest during a two-hour fixed period.

Many members of the Team Priority Health and Rapid Wheelmen participated last year, and it is an open event to anyone who wants to join in this year. It's a good chance to shed some holiday pounds and connect with youth who are interested in cycling. 

The marathon will take place on Saturday, Jan. 8 at The Motion Initiative's community center (1035 Godfrey SW). It will start with setup at 9 a.m., spin from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and be finished by noon.
