MEET THE RIDERS
FOR
AMERICA BY BICYCLE'S
FAST AMERICA RIDE '09

 

Eight brave cyclists have stepped up to the challenge of riding across the US in quick fashion.  They come from all walks of life and from a wide range of ages.  All have different reasons for tackling such a challenge, but they all have one thing in common...all will stretch their comfort zones and will set new standards for what they thought they could endure or could accomplish.  They are all committed to completion of the ride, but it's the journey they'll remember.  We are committed to the goal of getting them all to Massachusetts safely.
