A few weeks ago, I noted the Guinness World Record attempt by George Hood in spin cycling, in support of the Gunnar Hotchkin Memorial Fund.

In the spirit of follow-up–and George Hood is nothing if not the consummate example of persistent follow-up, here’s a news release that Inside Edge PR produced in the aftermath of Hood’s successful ride: “Two Much: George Hood Wraps Up Spin Cycling Marathon at 222 Hours, 22 Minutes, 22 Seconds.

Along with other volunteers’ efforts, Inside Edge PR helped secure coverage for George’s feat on WGN Radio (host Greg Jarrett), WBBM Radio (Mike Krauser), NBC 5, and a variety of local newspaper outlets.

Congratulations to George, whose record-setting rides (as well as a few that fell short) I’ve publicized for nearly four years. And kudos to the volunteer crew that played an integral role in his extraordinary effort.

Below is a video clip, shot by Devyn Bokos of Urban Tri Gear in Burr Ridge, that shows George cruising past the prior record of 200 hours:
