Best Buddies Challenge: Miami

November 17 2018
Miami, Florida, USA

Join cycling legends Chris Froome, George Hincapie, and Christian Vande Velde on Friday, November 16, 2018! Starting and finishing at one of Miami’s iconic sites. Riders will be escorted and followed in a closed peloton by police vehicles at a minimum 18 mph pace. If equipment fails the ride does not stop. Our SAG support, provided by Mack Cycle and Fitness, will either provide an alternative top of the line bike and/or make the necessary repair to allow members to rejoin the peloton.

The Challenge is open to all ages and abilities and includes professional athletes, high-profile personalities as well as the active participation of athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Once riders return to the finish line, they will be greeted with refreshments, hot showers, professional massages, and lunch in the finish line village.
