Maria Parker’s World Record Quest ~ 10/10

Maria rode her Cruzbike Silvio [her "Yellow Bike"] & her husband’s Black Silvio. They are movable bottom bracket recumbents, with front wheel drive. She is looking to ride a longer distance on her ‘bent than any other woman has in a 12-hour time period, where the ride was a Ultramarathon Cycling Association (UMCA) sanctioned event. The best to Maria and her team.
