Rock and Roll Trainer Night Rides on Wednesdays start Jan. 20;
Indoor bicycling event to benefit CVNPA and help beat cabin fever

Peninsula OH (January 18, 2010) – Century Cycles is teaming up with the Winking Lizard and Kinetic bicycle trainers to host Rock and Roll Trainer Night Rides, an opportunity for local bicyclists to challenge themselves on one of the hottest indoor bicycle trainers, have fun, and help a good cause.

Rock and Roll Trainer Night Rides will be at the Winking Lizard in Peninsula, Ohio, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. They begin Wednesday, January 20, and will continue the following three Wednesday nights - January 27, February 3 and February 10. The cost is $2 for a 2-minute ride, with all proceeds benefiting the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Association's "TRAILS FOREVER" Legacy Fund.

Participants will ride a Raleigh Special cruiser bike on a Kinetic Rock and Roll Bicycle Trainer for two minutes in two-person heats. Distance and wattage will be measured. All skill levels are welcome; the Specials were selected to level the playing field (nobody is allowed to bring their own bike). Sponsors are providing nightly prizes, plus every participant gets entered to win one of the two Raleigh Special bicycles - one men's, one women's - which will be awarded at the end of the four-week event.

Rock and Roll Trainer Night Rides are sponsored by Century Cycles, Raleigh Bicycles, Kinetic, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, and the Winking Lizard.

The Kinetic Rock and Roll bicycle trainer takes realism (and a workout) to a whole new level with the only trainer that delivers the side-to-side motion characteristic of outdoor riding and out-of-the-saddle hill climbs. To watch a video of the Kinetic Rock and Roll bicycle trainer ($559.99) in action, visit The Raleigh Special is a cruiser bicycle that is simplicity in motion - one gear, one coaster brake, and it comes in just one color.

This is the first indoor cycling event for Century Cycles.
