    Attn. Masochists: 200 mi-1 Day

    Want a REALLY TOUGH ride?

    Go to: http://www.spokanebicycleclub.org/

    Click on: Midsummer Nightmare

    ( There ARE other hills, and it does get HOT some years!)

    Click on: Bike Links, then Spokane Outdoors for rough idea of terrain to the north

    This is one of the very few occasions when I have wished I lived somewhere else.

    I can't believe there are only two masochists on BikeForums!

    (Mainly because I, myself, am suspect; though I do not wish to congratulate myself in this respect, at least, not yet.)
    No worries

    Pete,

    I HAVE NOT done this ride, some have accused me of doing CRAZIER things though. A buddy of mine won it once on a TOUGHER course and got heat stroke when another buddy of mine WON it on this course on a one-speed Schwinn "triple bar" Cruiser!!!
    The story goes: He would have won by HOURS, if he hadn't stopped, took a nap and waited for a category TWO racer because he got bored with riding alone. If I can remeber right, the winning time that year was about nine hours.

    Ride Far Enough

    This convinces me that truth is, indeed, often stranger than fiction.

    Yeah, but what would life be like without challenges?

    As a flatlander, all I can think of to say is:

    MOMMY!!
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    No you wont.
    If you want spectacular results, you have to know how to treat your bike badly.
