It is and incredible feat to participate in the Race Across America. No matter what you do for the race it is a big commitment to either put on the race, crew for the riders or ride. Everyone deserves KUDOS. Today the elite men, women and some teams began their journey of three thousand miles to Annapolis. You will be able to follow them online. RAA teams will start Saturday at 2:00 pm. It should be a great day since the City has closed The Strand to cars for a bikes only day, its only fitting.
