Unless you were at the Columbia River Maritime Museum early Saturday morning, you missed the departure of the 114 avid participants in the fifth Trans Am Bike Race (pictured from the group’s Facebook page) who are racing 4,300 grueling miles across 10 states to Yorktown, Virginia.

Anyone tackling this adventure would be wise to note the detailed list of rules, dos and don’ts (mostly don’ts). Rule No. 1 holds few surprises: “No complaining about the rules.”

Want to watch the racers’ progress? Check out the Trans Am Bike Race 2018 website at Last year’s champion made it in 17 days, 8 hours and 58 minutes.

And what does the winner receive? There’s “nothing to win or lose but honor.”
