The 2016 Trans Am Bike Race started off from Astoria, Oregon on June 4, with its participants aiming to cycle to Yorktown, Virginia.
It’s some 4400 miles and the rules stipulate that you should have no outside support during the ride which isn’t commercially available.
It’s the third year that the race has been held, with the initial 2014 version won by Englishman Mike Hall in 17 days, 16 hours and 17 minutes.
Laura Scott took part in this year’s race. This is what she took with her.
