103,304 km completed.
The Finish!! 🙌💙💜💛
Congratulations! We made it, over 100,000 km together in a month. An incredible achievement from you all, thank you!
Now enjoy a rest. Eat, sleep, party and wait for that little fox to finally arrive..
The Race: Congratulations to Tanja, John & Whiskey, who stand proudly on the "virtual" podium. It has been incredible to watch what you do. Also it is important to mention those close behind: Kate, Andrew & Yumi. I could see how hard you were all working. There have been too many amazing achievements within this race for me to mention them all, so to everyone, thank you for making this so much fun. We could not have circumnavigated the globe in a month without the hard work of you all.
The Challenge: I remember thinking a month ago, our races are being cancelled and we are stuck at home, but we need to do something. Anything to help the efforts of those battling this virus. We originally came up with a 45,000 km route around the globe, which Tanja quickly doubled :) We wanted it to be a real challenge as that was the only way we thought a virtual race could gain interest. I have been amazed by how quickly everyone got involved, with only a few days notice! It also amazed me that we beat that fox around the world. But the thing that has been so special for me was seeing the fun stories, incredible achievements, lovely photos and friendships form over the adventure. Just like a real race.
Thank you everyone for making this so memorable, our Virtual Bike Race in 2020.
And all the money we have raised for Doctors Without Borders will make a difference.
Take care & ride safe,
