In just two years, Lamorna Brown Swigart has gone from someone who admittedly was not fit or athletically inclined, to riding her ElliptiGO bike more than 1100 miles from Oregon to Mexico. As she ticks off longer and bigger athletic challenges, she also raises funds for charities in her quest to "GO for Good."
Tim Woodier, from Abergavenny, Wales (UK), rode a borrowed ElliptiGO elliptical bicycle throughout an 87-day, 6800-mile odyssey that took him through Canada and 23 states in the eastern half of the United States. Throughout his self-supported trip, he relied on the community of ElliptiGO owners for lodging, food and entertaining diversions from the road.
For many people, riding a bicycle 1300 miles (2100km) would be a very good year. Stuart Blofeld rode that distance in just over seven days to complete the first-ever Wild Atlantic Way Audax (WAWA), a timed event that runs the length of the longest coastal road in the world, skirting the entire western coast of Ireland.
Physical Therapist Anna Thatcher completed the 129-mile Death Ride, which features more than 15,000 feet of climbing. This marked the seventh year in a row that an ElliptiGO rider has finished all five passes of the grueling ride.
Several intrepid ElliptiGOers have tested their personal fitness and mental fortitude with epic rides in 2016. The goals for these rides are varied: from a youthful college celebration to a milestone birthday, from book-writing expedition to world records. But they all had one thing in common: showing what’s possible – if only to themselves.
Six ElliptiGO cyclists participated in the California Coast Classic, riding 525 miles over eight days while raising more than $22,100 to fight arthritis, a disease that affects one in every five adults and 300,000 children. For each of the riders, the cause was personally meaningful.
Six ElliptiGO bike riders became the first athletes to complete the 1230-kilometer (764-mile) Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneur (“P-B-P”) cycling event on elliptical bikes, according to ElliptiGO Inc.
Today announced that Dan Waggoner of Fremont, Ohio set a new elliptical cycling record by riding 234.94 miles in 24 hours during the Flatlanders Bicycle Tour on August 19, 2012.
71-year-old former Marine Rick Hermelin made history this week as the first person to run coast-to-coast on an ElliptiGO elliptical bicycle. The intrepid septuagenarian made the epic 3,000-mile trek to raise funds for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund.
