Congratulations to our very own Jacki Klancher who put her body to the test by completing the Elite Transcontinental Cycling Tour. Jacki and a group of 15 riders cycled from San Diego, California to Tybee Island, Georgia in 18 riding days. 2,785 miles total, equaling roughly 160 miles a day!
Jacki said of the tour.. “The ride was all I had hoped for – challenging, exciting, daunting and delightful. My body held up a little better than it did two years ago, and this time around I rode EFI (every freaking inch) of the 2785 miles. We persevered through convective storms that flooded roads and bottom brackets, winds that rattled chakras, and on bottoms with saddle sores – ohhhhh the saddle sores – that can lead a woman to the drink, and the brink. I had two mechanicals – one major, one fixed (like magic) on the fly, and finished one day on a loaner bike. All was resolved, however, and my steed took me to the end of the road, and onto the shores of the Atlantic.”
