Since RAAM is starting today we just wanted to make everyone aware that there are several RAAM records of interest up for grabs this year. The 4-person and Men’s solo records for stock recumbent are the ones we’ll be keeping an eye on but a new record for solo women, stock recumbent, could also be established this year. It’s all very exciting stuff and we’d like to encourage you all to follow along. <http://www.raceacrossamerica.org> And everyone here at Bacchetta would like to wish all those involved in this years RAAM a safe and successful ride!
