5th Annual Super Spin Saturday Set for Jan. 24

As 2008 winds down, it's time to begin promoting the first events of 2009. The first big event on our calendar is the fifth annual Super Spin Saturday: Ride for Rosita, Jan. 24 at Theisen Middle School in Fond du Lac, Wis.

The event is a fund, friend and awareness builder for United Hearts for Health, a group of medical missionaries from Fond du Lac who have been working to improve medical services in Rosita, Nicaragua.

Participants ride their bikes on a stationary trainer or rollers. Spin bikes and Kinetic trainers are also available. Registration begins at 8 a.m. Riding starts at 9 a.m. with a warm-up hour led by Oliver Clements, a doctor from Fond du Lac. Riding continues to 2 p.m. with a new leader each hour, including six-time Ironman finisher Heather Haviland, Denny Yunk of Milwaukee's CZ Velo team and Dave Hornung of Team Fond du Lac/Oshkosh Cyclery.

I will lead the noon-1 p.m. hour.

This is a really fun event ... more fun than you should have riding a stationary bike.

There will be Compu-Trainer racing for adults and kids with a $250 savings bond up for grabs for the winning youth. Lots of other swag is distributed throughout the day. Each participant will be entered in a free drawing to win their choice of a road bike or a Gary Fisher 29er mountain bike. For more information, check out the registration form.
