A Spanish charitable organisation named Fundación Sanitas ended its seventh annual inclusive sports week by smashing the record for the Largest static cycling lesson in Madrid, Spain.
The foundation organised this attempt as part of its ongoing campaign to promote all-encompassing sport for people with and without disabilities.

An incredible 1,208 participants, many of whom had disabilities, cycled into the record books by taking part in the 30 minutes class, outdoors on Plaza Colón.
The lesson was led by a number of Spanish sporting professionals including former road bicycle racer Pedro Delgado, medal-winning Paralympic swimmer Teresa Perales, Paralympic powerlifter Loida Zabala, cyclist Juanjo Mendez and taekwondo practitioner Eva Calvo.
The static cycling class took place under the watchful gaze of official Guinness World Records adjudicator Anna Orford, who was thrilled to present Fundación Sanitas with a certificate confirming their success.
The previous record for the largest static cycling lesson was 1,093 people and was achieved by Bodytech at an event organised by Evenpro Entretenimiento in Bogotá, Colombia back in 2012.
