Cycling Jerseys a success for Congo!

After 2,776 miles in just 7 days on their bikes, the Race for Congo Cycling Team sponsored by Ascend Sportswear finished their amazing ride in Baltimore, Maryland.  Riding non-stop 24 hours a day the cycling riders were on a mission to raise money for the urgent crisis in Congo.   Congo is stricken with conflict tearing families apart, insecurity threatening the innocence of women, and hunger stunting the growth of an entire generation.

The cycling team was not without trouble on their journey though.  They faced foul weather, multiple flat tires on their support vehicles, and worsening fatigue as each rider had upwards of  6 cycling tours every single day!  The riders were wearing their official Race for Congo cycling jerseys and biking jerseys on each route and conquered some amazing terrain.  You can follow their journey and view all the great pictures of this fantastic team HERE.
