American Trail Race

Cape Lookout, NC United States

Riders will follow a course predominantly based on the Trans-America Trail (TAT), originally established by dual-sport motorcyclists, then first ridden on bicycle in its entirety in 2015 by Sarah and Tom Swallow. The off-pavement version of the Trans-Am Trail has long been on the radar of ultra endurance bikepackers and finally came to fruition in the form of a group ride/race with the grand depart on the morning of June 1, 2017.
