RE: Indian Pacific Wheel Race

RAAM is a supported ride. And the worst climbs are nearer the start than the end, though don't discount the Appalachians.

Is the Australian version?

A few guys DO ride unsupported while others detour to run thru a McDonalds Drivethru for some lunch.

I was in Huntington Beach where the RAAM rides started after previous starts somewhere else. The race has changed these days to include Tandem and Team divisions. The Ladies are not forgotten, either.

'Plutonium' Pete Penseyres lived up the hill from me in a town called Fallbrook. He worked about 50 miles away at the San Onofre nuke power plant. Thus the 'Plutonium'. He biked back and forth to work when in training, which was most of the time. He was a 2x winner of RAAM and set an average speed record which stood for years.
