14,000 miles, 48 states and two provinces and a pot of gold at the end of the road...
The results are in from the 2011 challenge and the 2012 challenge is set for August of next year but will only be 7,000 miles with 12 days to complete the 7,000 mile journey.

The Hoka Hey Challenge tracks you by GPS so that you can't speed or take shortcuts from the route, and if you are one of the finalists who cross the line in time you have to take a polygraph test.

This is a long distance rider's many of you would consider doing a challenge like this?
If the prize was $50K, or $100K dollars or how about $500,000 dollars?

It is $1,000 to enter the competition and hundreds of riders have signed up and completed the challenge over two years so, how many Canucks are willing to get involved for that kind of entry fee and that kind of prize money?

I would love to know....

  1. I had a good friend who completed it this year and if I had the time and money, I'd LOVE LOVE to do it myself.
