2020: “Everesting Indy”
Lap of Taiwan / 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 2019 or early 2020.

2020 and beyond-
I plan to eventually visit every SRAM facility globally on a WBR fundraising endurance ride. That will include:
- Lap of Taiwan
- a “Tour de SRAM Europe”
- Chicago to Spearfish, SD (the home of Quarq): draft route on RidewithGPS
- A few others!
