who, me!?

My name is Keith. I am a 2018 Trans Am Bike Race competitor and finisher.

I love  bikes. I absolutely need adventure so I created a race.

I believe we need audacious challenges every now and then; ones that push the narratives we believe about ourselves.

The inception for this race came while racing TABR. I wanted to share this sport and what it has taught me about myself. So here it is.

I hope you join us.
