Marc’s 24 Hours of Indoor Training

Join us at Freewheel Cycle as we host a true madman, Marc Sinclair of 9point8, as he goes for a 24 hour indoor trainer ride to collect donations of non-perishable food items for Hamilton Food Share. But he needs YOUR HELP!

Saturday February 9th 12:00PM – Sunday February 10th 12:00PM
@ Freewheel Cycle

Marc will ride 10 minutes for every non-perishable food item donated. His goal is to collect 144 items. That’s right. By our math, that means he’ll ride around the clock. Marc will have his bike set up in store and begin riding on Saturday at noon. His epic efforts will continue, with the help of your donations, until noon on Sunday.

Marc is putting his efforts to good use by setting up a non-perishable food drive for Hamilton Food Share. A collection bin will be at the shop this week so bring some food items, and cheer Marc on as he embarks on this 24 hour journey!

And no, Marc doesn’t get to eat your donated food during his ride. 😉

How you can get involved:

  • Bring your food donations to the shop this week so Marc can see what he’s in for
  • Jump on your smart trainer and join him online in Zwift (rider: “Dundas Freewheel Cycle”)
  • Come by the shop on Saturday with high-fives, food donations and good vibes for Marc

Please note that regular business hours still apply at Freewheel during Marc’s ride. We will be open on Saturday from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday 12pm to 5pm.
