THE WORLD'S LONGEST BICYCLE RACE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the world's longest bicycle race?

Started in 1982, the world's longest bicycle race is RAAM; Race Across America. It was called the Great American Bike Race in the first year.

Held annually,  the route for the Race Across America varies but always begins on the west coast and ends on the east coast covering roughly 3,000 miles.

Unlike other long races, such as the Tour de France, which have stages,  the Race Across America doesn't. Once the clock starts it doesn't stop again till you cross the finish line.

As the route and distance vary year to year it is hard to determine records, but the fastest the race has been completed by a solo rider was 8 days 9 hours 47 minutes by Pete Penseyres in 1986, covering  3,107 miles.
