I've decided to do it, partly based on some earlier postings here about what a great ride it is. I'm in good shape but I've never ridden anywhere near that far in one pop. Time to get in some serious training. I ride a Bike Friday folder, so I hope to see some of those folks out there (I'll post this over on Folders, too) as well as some of us Fifty-Plus forum members. I guess my main issues are butt comfort, all-day fueling and sun protection.
