Minnesota Man to Bike Across US for Veterans
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A Minnesota man is planning to ride from California to Maryland as part of an endurance event that will have him in the saddle some 20 hours a day.
Bob McEnaney of Woodbury will be raising money for the Minnesota Military Family Foundation along the way.
McEnaney tells reporters he’s “scared to death” about the 3,000-mile Race Across America, which he starts Tuesday. He says he’s doing it to challenge himself.
McEnaney traveled to California twice this spring for training sessions. He completed a three-day 650-mile test ride. He says his peak is 55 hours on a bike.
Unlike other races, the Race Across America doesn’t stop the race clock to allow for breaks. McEnaney plans to sleep in an RV for only three hours a day.
