Forbes Monaco. And They’re Off! Princess Charlene’s Epic 180k Water Bike Challenge For Charity Is Under Way

At approximately 1 p.m. Saturday, Princess Charlene’s Calvi-Monaco Water Bike Challenge set off from the port of Calvi on Corsica’s northwest coast. The former Olympic swimmer will be pedaling on a water bike as part of a 180-kilometer crossing to raise awareness for various programs run by her foundation.

Called “The Crossing,” the epic race sees two teams of four international athletes faceoff for a 24-hour relay with a spectacular finish line at the Monaco Yacht Club, expected Sunday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. In calm waters, the Schiller water bike only reaches an average speed of 12.8 km/h (although pros can hit 16 km/h).
