American Cycling Adventures
Take inspiration from Michael Strasser’s incredible 25,000km cycling challenge across the Americas by discovering how you can test your pedal power against some of the continents’ most spectacular landscapes.

American Cycling Adventures

Austrian cyclist, Michael Strasser has embarked an incredible biking challenge along the Pan-American highway from Alaska to Patagonia.

The world record attempt will cover an astonishing 23,000km as Michael makes his way through Canada, continental U.S.A, Mexico and South America. Known as Ice2Ice, the challenge has been designed to increase awareness of climate change and the loss of snow cover and ultimately encourage people to jump on their bikes instead of driving pollutant producing cars.

He will finish the challenge as he started, surrounded by mountains and glaciers in ice-laden destinations, just the type of environment he is trying to help protect. As Strasser works his way along the longest cross-continental road in the world, he will also be raising money in support of ALS and ME/CFS research.

If you're inspired to hop in the saddle to head out on a great American adventure or raise money for a cause close to your heart, we've picked out some incredible cycling challenges to whet your appetite.
