Hey just getting a feel. Who is doing the Total 200 this year. I am thinking about it, but want to get input on who is, and who has done it.

Does "done it" mean totally completed it? I mean I completed it once...barely...and then bowed out last year at mile 150 (it was brutally hot) due to not drinking enough....

I am going to do it again this year though...kind of need some redemption...

It is a great event, well organized, for a good cause, support is 2nd to none and you will make some great friends along the way....I mean 10 hours in the saddle and 12.5 hours on the road with the same people you are bound to make friends...

Most likely going to do it again - round 3. Well-supported casual ride that naturally breaks up into 3 or 4 main groups depending on speed and ability. Good group of people. I think this is the first year it is being directly linked to a charity, so that's always a feel-good bonus. Stops every 25 miles or so, which is enough to get a good ride in while taking a break when needed.

If nothing else your top reasons for riding should be the unique jersey (a few extra $$ I think) and Oreos!

I'm registered. Haven't done a 200 before, but I'm hoping that tri-training will have me in peak condition by the time the time we ride rolls around. (Ha...a pun.)

Do you guys think it's possible to train up for that starting now? I have a strong basketball and lifting base...(ie not much)

I didn't finish last year (I did the total 182), but can't recommend the ride enough. It's fun, it's tough, and it's a test. I probably won't be doing it this year due to schedule conflicts, but I don't know yet.
