Photo-gallery June 2021:
In the gallery below the participants of this year's Month of Cycling share the photos and inspiration from their rides in June 2021.
Igor from Skopje, Macedonia is participating in TransAm Bike Race (around 6500 km across USA, from West to East Coast, self-supported race). TransAm started on June 6. It was supposed to happen last year, but was postponed to 2021 due to Covid-19.
Follow Igor's progress on race's tracker page: https://transambikerace.com
In a self-supported bike race, participants have no helpers and no organizator's support except on the checkpoints. They must cover the distance between checkpoints on their own, finding their way, buying food, take care of their gear and booking accommodations "on the way" to sleep a few hours. Igor did a few such races in Europe, this is his first in America.
Information about the participant on TransAm Bike Race's site.
