The Stationary Exercise Bikes Challenge

OK Ladies and Gents, get ready to mount your exercise bicycles.
This is the part of the proceedings when we put you through your paces ...

It's time to DE-JELLY those bellies.

It's time to take the THUNDER out of those thighs.

It's time for ...
The Great Electric Schwinn Exercise Bike Race.


What a ROARING response.

I am always BLOWN away by the popularity of this event.


Ah, yes sir ...
I can see this is what you've been waiting for.
You have that fanatic gleam in your eye that says ...
CYCLIST who loves a challenge!

Well folks, that's exactly what we have for you tonight.


A challenge.
(Brought to you by our fine sponsors - Schwinn Exercise Bikes

Now this is how it works ladies and gents.

Each and every exercise bike is hooked up to a speedometer.
The winning cyclist will be the person who covers the greatest distance in our SEVEN MINUTE sprint.

Sounds EASY, but believe me folks - it's not.

It is TOUGH going.
And the competition is FIERCE.

Our last winner was a speedy young lad called Lance Armstrong.
He set the record at 100mph.
I can see that boy will be going places one day.

PLUS ...

To make this CHALLENGE more exciting,
We have connected all the bicycles into the Electrical Mains Grid and we are gunning to win a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the greatest amount of electricity generated by human-powered vehicles in a seven-minute period.


You might be helping us make Bicycle History here tonight folks!

Won't that be something to tell the grandkids!

OK so now to ... the PRIZE.
Do you know about the prize?
That's why you are all here. It's certainly not to look at my ugly mug, is it? Ha! Ha!

Well just in case you weren't aware
This AMAZING prize includes ...
Not only a FANTASTIC luxury Schwinn exercise bike

TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS in cold hard cash.

OK so I know you are CHOMPING at the bit to get started ...
But FIRST, before we fire up, you must all choose your ride.

And you have CHOICES folks.

Wander around the Main Domain and find the best exercise bicycle for you.

You are going to give the rest of the audience a run for their money, on those HOT wheels.

OK friends.

Let The Great Electric Schwinn Exercise Bike Race BEGIN!!
(Phew ... that's quite a mouthful. Try saying THAT fast, five times!)

OK now.
Ready. Set. GO!!
And we are off and pedalling.


LOOK at that folks.
You are generating enough electricity here tonight to light up the entire city.

Um ... actually maybe we should slow down a little.
I'm nervous we might BLOW the entire grid.
Only kidding - keep going sir.

You people are SENSATIONAL.
This is our BEST exercise bicycle race EVER!!

Not only have we SMASHED the GUINNESS BOOK record and made Bicycle History here tonight, BUT ...
We also have a new exercise-bicycle sprint CHAMPION!

Here is your check sir.


Maybe we'll see you racing in the Tour De France at some stage in the future ...
Ha! Ha! Just joking you'd have to be MAD to go in that race.
Stick to the exercise bicycle racing, I say!

GOODNIGHT ladies and gentlemen,
And THANK YOU all for participating.

If it weren't for the fact that the TV set and the refrigerator are so far apart, some of us wouldn't get any exercise at all.
