AN UNFORGETTABLE JOURNEY
Riding Across America raising money for the Bahati Foundation, Jesse Reese Foundation and Augies Quest
by: Rahsaan Bahati
October 2017 I was asked to join a four-person team to compete in this year’s Race Across America. RAAM is considered by many to be the toughest bike race in the world.
For 36 years, RAAM has been challenging ultracyclists from around the world to push their
physical and mental limits to the farthest reaches. Starting in Oceanside, California, under one of the longest piers in the state, RAAM spans 3000 miles, climbs 175,000 feet, crosses 12 states and finishes at City Dock in Annapolis, Maryland, an East Coast sailing mecca.
