The date is Sunday, September 16. Only 850 can sign up via Active.com. The ride starts in Lenoir, NC and finishes 102 miles later on top of Grandfather-a 2 mile climb that can be rather "intense". There's also a 13 mile climb up Hwy 181 that starts at the 52 mile mark. If the weather is agreeable it is a beautiful ride once up on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It has been one of my favorite rides in the past.
I'm in serious need of some motivation. I've ridden some miles the last 6 weeks but not at a very intense level. I'm not even sure I could ride 80 miles right now, much less 100 with some pretty steep climbs. Still searching for the right motivation but I'm not having any luck.
Just about ready to send out the SOS.
and I've already signed up for it...........
