The Race Across America is the world’s toughest endurance cycle race – 3000 miles without stopping, to be finished within 12 days. Carvalho Custom sponsors Shusannah Pillinger’s custom cycling clothing, and she has just set off in her attempt to be the first British woman to finish. Last year she made it most of the way, but then fell asleep on her bike and broke her collarbone – I suppose we can forgive her that after spending 9 days riding 300 miles a day on a couple of hours sleep a day….!
You can follow the race at http://ridefarther.com/ and via her facebook page. There is also a good BBC article about her attempt here.
Best of luck to Shu and please show her your support on social media!
