Local mountain biker says 2,725 mile ride changed her life | WHNT.com

It’s the race of a lifetime.

“The ride itself starts in Banff, Canada and it finishes in Antelope Wells, New Mexico,” Grace told us.

It’s a race the length of the Rockies. She did the 2,725 miles ride in 42 days! “This was life changing event for me,” she told us afterwards. “I am completely satisfied at this moment.”

Grace’s biggest obstacle was her Multiple Sclerosis. It was replacing the 5,000 calories she was going to be burning each day.
