Racing Across America on Two Wheels

May 28, 2014

Debbie and Bill Albers, in training.

  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.
