Created in 1982, the Race Across America (RAAM) is now the longest running ultra-distance bicycle endurance competition in the world. This is not a stage race like the Tour de France, where each day a set distance is covered. In RAAM the gun fires somewhere on the West Coast (Oceanside, CA in 2006) and the finishing line is over 3000 miles away, on the other side of the continent.

They are starting at the Oceanside Pier on Sunday the 11th at 8am. They are finishing in New Jersey this year.

Should be a good photo op with all the colorful jerseys and pretty bikes!

    This looks pretty cool. I’d never heard of this race before.
