When did this event originate?
In 2013 the Brickyard to Bridge (B2B) began and each year since we have cycled 500 miles from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to the Mackinac Bridge in northern Michigan (with 2021 being a different five day ride through the Rocky Mountains!). After 10 years of the B2B, our fundraising event is evolving to a team duathlon relay to encourage more participation, camaraderie, and fundraising for YFCI.
What is provided?
There will be some food & drinks provided at the host site, although teams and individuals will be expected to support themselves with the appropriate nourishment and equipment support throughout the event. Teams are strongly encouraged to have multiple team support vehicles to be available to follow their team throughout the event. Please contact us with any questions.
