Coming June 2, 2019. Cycle 4,300 miles as fast as you can! The Trans Am Bike Race takes riders across the United States from Astoria, Oregon to Yorktown, Virginia. This is a self-supported, ultra-distance cycling race, which translates into no specific check points, no scheduled refueling stations, and no private lodging. Any services or support that a rider uses, such as food, repairs, accommodations, medical care, etc., must be from commercial sources along the route. The clock never stops, so riders decide how long to ride and rest, as they cross 10 states, with their positions being monitored using GPS satellite-based tracker devices on participants’ bikes that upload their positions to a website for racers and followers to view. The fastest time was in 2018, by Marcel Graber, with an amazing final time of 16 days, 6 hours, and 40 minutes. We’ll see who captures the title this year at the Trans Am Bike Race!
