ASC development coordinator Ella Fahrlander says that while most tour participants come in large teams, with each member doing a lap or two, some ride the full 24 hours alone, stopping only to eat and answer natures call. Spectators come out to see the bikers costumes: Superheroes are always out in full force, as are the firefighters who come with sirens and all their gear. Last year, the all-night race it runs from 3 p.m. today to 3 p.m. tomorrow took place during a full moon, and some teams had a lot of fun with that, Fahrlander recalls.
