2019 plans are being developed, but here is a tentative list:
LAP OF TAIWAN 2019 / 4 POINTS
Closely following the coast of Taiwan, starting from Taichung and proceeding counterclockwise, the ride will cover about 700 miles (1130km) with 35,000 ft (10,700m) of climbing. I will attempt to ride around Taiwan as fast as possible, averaging over 200 miles (320km) per day. Each of the 4 points (westernmost, southernmost, etc.) of the island will be reached along the way. Dates are tentative, but the ride should occur in late Summer or Fall 2019.
The planned route is at: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29137357.
24 Hours- with a twist:
A 24 hour ride is planned, in which I will complete as many miles as possible. That has been been accomplished many times by many people. This ride will have a challenging- and somewhat quirky- twist. Stay tuned for details!
Other 2019 rides
Other rides that aren’t specifically fundraisers for World Bicycle Relief:
- Rollfast 8×8 Challenge– “the hardest hill ride in Indiana”, each 11.7 mile lap in Brown County State Park has 900ft of elevation change
In 2020 and beyond, I plan to eventually visit every SRAM facility globally on a WBR fundraising endurance ride. That will include:
- Lap of Taiwan in 2019
- a “Tour de SRAM Europe”
- Chicago to Spearfish, SD (the home of Quarq): draft route on RidewithGPS
- A few others!
Please contact me if you’d like to join or have suggestions on other challenging endurance rides to support World Bicycle Relief.
