the trans continental race 2013

This is a pure old fashioned adventure race. It’s exciting and it’s tough. A race where men will become heroes. All you need to do is ride from London to Istanbul in the quickest time taking the quickest route. No support, no dedicated assistance just self reliance and whatever you can carry on your bike. You’ll cover a minimum of 2000 miles and there’s a mountain checkpoint in the Alps so there’s going to be some climbing to do. Ride alone, ride fast, go without sleep, struggle on and on until you get there. You’ve got about 15 days until the party starts with or without you. Sound like fun? Thought so. Sign up here.
