In the video above, you can watch a true recumbent bicycling ambassador in action! As some of you may have seen yesterday, Maria Parker, finished RAAM, in 11 days, 20 hours. She was the first female finisher by several hundred miles. And did so by being forced off the road for a full day because her support van and three of her crew members, were lost because of a car accident.
The recumbent and Cruzbike communities rallied around this amazing 50-year old mother of four and she rewarded us with what is being called the biggest comeback in the history of RAAM!! She showed all of us that her heart was as strong as her very f a s t machine. Too exciting!
btw: In case you missed it, HERE is the interview she and I did just before her epic effort!
