CALIFORNIA TO MARYLAND IN 5 DAYS, 17 HRS., 56 MINUTES NON-STOP ON BIKES

A team of TORONTO cyclists raced across the United States, crossing three mountain ranges and 5,000 kilometres, becoming the fastest-ever Canadians to bike from one side of the US to the other. The eight-person team pedalled in 10-hour shifts, allowing some recovery time in a trailing Recreation Vehicle.

The team, finishing in Annapolis, Maryland on Friday, raised over $120,000 for the True Patriot Love Foundation, a Canadian charity that supports veterans, military personnel and their families. <PHOTOS – Chris Slawson>
