Super South Racer Girls, The 42 Ride

This a Slide Show of The Southern Route's Nine Female Riders.

NY to LA in 58 days. Fran rode every mile, everyday, 4200 miles.

It looks like it was a supported ride from a liquor company or importer. How did you get involved? Did you apply?

It all started here on BF May 14, 2009

42Ride: A huge bike ride across the country. And people get paid to do it?!

42 riders needed to ride from NY to LA in 58 days
$3000 pay plus per diem and full support.
250 riders applied.

The 42 Ride Ends in LA

Yes. She got it on E-bay. She loved it and had no problems riding 28 mph most days.
