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.
I did not take all the pics.

Enjoy, They rode hard, got tired, had fun.

Really really worth watching. Especially the pink and yellow bike.

Well done 10 wheels.

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

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