Who's in? Any one who's done it care to comment on the event?
Did the 200 miles in 2011 and volunteered in 2012. This event is AWESOME! Great support, great camaraderie. I'll probably do it again in 2013.
You do need to bring your A game. But with some training and mental strength anyone can do it. Be sure to join a group and ride with them and bring extra tubes.
I did the 200k option this year and it was a lot of fun (especially thanks to awesome volunteers like Alejandro). There were some turns that weren't as clearly marked as they should have been, but the organizers are going to revise the course this year. It was also 100+ degrees the day after the derecho storm, so everyone was a real trooper. This ride is a great training opportunity if you're planning on racing an ironman or half-iron next year.
Sounds like a blast. Next year's gonna be exciting!
I think I'm taking on the 200 miles. Who's with me?
Looks like a fantastic way to spend a Saturday
