Keith and Ellen Wolcott will give a presentation on their successful completion of the Race Across America (RAAM), a 3,000 mile nonstop bicycle race from coast to coast which took place last June.  Keith raced as a solo rider with Ellen as his crew chief.  Keith finished 18th out of 48 competitors in 11 days and 19 hours, averaging 256 miles per day.  They have recently published a book, "One Million Pedal Strokes," which tells about the adventure and how they prepared for it.  The presentation will cover all aspects of the race including training, logistics, crew support, and the race itself.
