The race starts Saturday 2nd June at 6am Pacific Time (2pm UK time). Full tracking details are be available on the Trans Am website, along with the limited number of rules that frame the race.
Each racer is issued a GPS tracker and you can watch the race unfold live on the Trackleaders website. For this race I am rider #74. The race does not stop until we reach the finish in Yorktown so the story plays out 24/7. Be warned: it’s addictive.
The race is covered on all forms of social media and the Trans Am Bike Race Facebook group acts like the news hub. The racers, their partners and a huge community of ‘dot watchers’ make it a great place for following the race.
Lastly, but most importantly, I’m using the race as an opportunity to raise funds for Cancer Research. Their pioneering work benefits every single one of us around the world. Here is the Just Giving page. Sharing that and sending it through the roof would be the very best way to support me. I cannot tell you how much of a boost it is to hear the ‘kerching’ of another donation while I shiver my way up a mountain in a storm and nurse my broken body 7,000km to Yorktown.
Together we raised an impressive £11,500 during my previous race. This time we’re shooting for the moon!
