Clarionista in Race Across America

WLC member Simon Taylor is riding the RAAM - the Race Across America which starts today in Oceanside, California and finishes in Annapolis, Maryland on 26th June. He'll be racing the 3000 miles as a relay in a team of six plus crew. The riders will be racing non stop, night and day for three hours at a time, with a 15-hour break between each shift untill they get to the East coast.

Follow their progress on their website and if you have any spare cash, why not sponsor them, they have already raised a staggering £20,000 for their nominated charities: Cancer Research, Lothian Autistic Society, Alström Syndrome UK, Scottish Motor Neurone Disease Association and Help for Heroes.

Good luck Simon!
