Before Pippa attends the Tour de France this year she will also be lending her support to a bicycle race in the United States. She will be arriving in Annapolis late this week or early next week to watch the last leg of a 3,000-mile bike race that has been extending across the United States.
The race is known as "The Race Across America," and crosses 12 states and the Arizona desert.
