Andreas’ Mad Planning - Cyclocross Route Option #96 - Photo by flickr user bradleyolinLong-distance cyclist and ‘cross racer Andreas Vogel likes to ride his bike just as much as the next guy. He just likes to ride it longer than the next guy. He’s planned the world’s longest ‘cross race for this June. See his details below:

The Northern California Loop Race – an 800 mile loop through the most beautiful landscapes of Northern California, fully self supported. Yes, it’s a little longer than your usual cyclocross race, but it’s only one lap.

Start 6/21 at 9am at the Denny’s in Willows, CA, for details see the race page on
