Touring Tuesday - Ho Chi Minh Trail

Mountain biking champion Rebecca Rusch just completed leading a group on an eight day, 330 mile trip on the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The event was a fund-raiser for efforts to safely remove unexploded ordinance from the Vietnam War. In 2015 she rode the entire length of the trail (over 700 miles) and visited the site where her father's plane crashed. Her father, a jet pilot, died during the war. A full-length feature film entitled Blood Road is scheduled to be released in 2017. It documents her 2015 journey.
