So this isn’t a typical post for me, but its something awesome that a friend of mine is doing (in fact, as this post was published they departed Oceanside California). Race Across America is an annual race where the crazy people, whoops, I mean cyclists, either individually or in teams, try to be the fastest person to cross the United States. It starts in Oceanside, CA and ends in Annapolis, MD. These teams cross over 3000 miles, 12 states and over 170,000ft of climbing (which just makes me cringe…I hate anything that makes me climb hills!). What makes this even more awesome is that my friend, Pamela (yeah, girl, i’m calling you out), is one of 4 pilots on a team that features all blind stokers (the folks that are in the back of a tandem bike). The team, Sea to See (isn’t that a great play on words) is aiming to change the narrative about what visually impaired folks can do.
I’m going to be tracking them through live updates (available HERE)
