How’s this for a challenging bike ride: 3000 miles, including 32 miles of ascents. And one more thing—it’s a non-stop race that has to be completed in nine days or less.
Why would anyone want to undertake such a daunting challenge? The answer is a little different for each of the Albers.
The map on the right shows the route the race will follow. The Albers will spend about $25,000 to take part in the race--most of it going to food for the support team and fuel for their vehicles. Their effort is also raising money for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
