Triple H, Findlay Ohio

Who is riding the Horizontal Hundred in Findlay, Ohio Sept 8th? Was going to ride it with a buddy but he is having knee problems. Certainly don't want to bite off a 100 without a riding partner.

This looks like a great ride. Waiting for registration to open.

Hey Kid,

I received an email that registration is open now...check the link in the middle of the page. Those that have ridden it have commented that is one of the best rides in Ohio, quite flat, nice roads, light traffic, well marked routes and really nice folks that host the event. I have several riding pals, a couple have been trying to get the miles in to ride it comfortably in 7 to 8 hours. Should be a great time!

Was a great ride for the first 75 miles, then turned into a battle of will against mother nature. Strange winds yesterday in that they were from the NNE at ~15MPH. I hate wind and it didsuck the life out of me. Ended up finishing in 6 hrs. 9 minutes, but could have been under 6. Will definitely be back next year - it was a great event.
