Taking place over 11 days in June, spanning 2,016 miles between Vancouver, Canada and Tijuana, Mexico, offering up 92,295 feet of climbing and temperatures in excess of 40 degrees, the GMF B2B ride is being described as the ‘Toughest Yet’.
The team will set off from Vancouver on 12th June 2016 and will cross seven mountain ranges as they make their way to the Mexican border. Much of the ride will be taking place in the absolute wilderness of mountains and deserts including the Cascade Mountains, Colombian Plateau, Sacramento Valley, Californian Coastal Mountains, the Sierra Nevada, the Mojave Desert and the San Antonio Mountains.
And let’s not forget why this team of riders are putting themselves through this: Hope House Children’s Hospices will benefit from every penny raised. Hope House provides palliative care for children with terminal conditions and support for their families, both on site and in their homes.
