Original RAAM Winner Lon Haldeman on Radio Century Cycles

Ever wonder what the most grueling, endurance-based sporting event on the planet is? Most would say the Race Across Amercia, a 3,000-mile cycling event with no stages and no stops, just non-stop racing from one end of the country to the other! Oh, and you have just over a week to complete it! Champions of the race complete it in 8-9 days. Do the math...that's a lot of time in the saddle with very little time for rest or sleep.

On the next episode of Radio Century Cycles, host Bob Soroky will be chatting with one of the founders of RAAM, and the first man to ever win the event, Lon Haldeman! Tune in live at 10:30am, Tuesday April 15, 2014 by clicking on over to: Radio Century Cycles Episode 29.

But don't worry, for those who aren't up for that kind of challenge, we'll be sharing some fun local rides that you can tackle!
Prior to the start of the solo division of the 2011 Race Across America, the original four competitors from 1982 were recognized and given special awards. From left to right: Lon Haldeman, John Howard, Michael Shermer, and founder John Marino.
