My challenge for 2019 is a self supported Ultra Cycling Event: Transambikerace (https://transambikerace.com). A Race from the west to the east-coast. From Astoria, Portland to Norfolk, Virginia. 10 States. 4200 miles or 6800 km. Without support.
Its a bit like the famous RAAM but a little bit longer and no team behind you. Therefore it takes some more time to cross the country. My plan is to complete the route in 21-23 Days. This would be an average of 280 – 300km each day.
Sport is a selfish thing and i did it long enough for myself. With my sportive challenge I want to collect donations for a project which really means a lot to me: Access Nepal (https://www.facebook.com/accessTOchildrights/in Kathmandu). I will make a post soon about the details. The idea is to raise money for every kilometer i ride. You can choose between 1 Cent per KM up to 1 Euro per KM, but of course you are free to donate any other amount. I will collect the money and give it my former boss Gokul Subedi in Kathmandu. I worked for this NGO for a few month in 2016. It was a lifetime experience and they do incredible things for children! Stay tuned for more infos about the charity program.
