The North Star Bicycle Race, a 629.4-mile ride from St. Paul to the Canadian border and back, kicks off Wednesday.

Details: Participants in the annual race, which started in 2018, aim to complete the ride unassisted. That means no roadside meals or water from friends or family.

The times to beat: The current records are 44 hours, 50 minutes for men and 87 hours, 2 minutes for women.

How to watch: While you can't help the riders, you can watch and cheer them on in person or online. Track their progress at this link.
