    Ever wonder what the most grueling, endurance based sporting event on the planet is?  Most would say the Race Across Amercia, a 3,000 mile cycling event with no stages and no stops, just balls-to-the-wall racing from one end of the country to the other!  Oh, and you have just over a week to complete it! Champions of the race complete it in 8-9 days. Do the math...that's a lot of time in the saddle with very little time for rest or sleep.  Today, we'll be chatting with one of the founders of RAAM, and the first man to ever win the event, Lon Haldeman!  But don't worry, for those who aren't up for that kind of challenge, we'll be sharing some fun local rides that you can tackle!

    Many of us know what it's like to cycle a century tour or charity ride, and in most cases you end up sleeping on gym floors or outside in the rain under a tent.
