It sounds like a scene from a Wes Anderson film. At precisely 10:10 am on September 2nd, 2020, the Swiss Ultracycling Challenge begins, with the rider pushing off from railway stations across the country to pedal as quickly as possible through all 26 Swiss cantons en route to the finish line in Bern’s Bundesplatz. The first cyclist to arrive wins.
UPDATE: Fiona rode 850km in just 34 hours to take the win. Congratulations Fiona!
