UMCA 24-hour

Is anyone here planning to ride the UMCA 24-hour?

http://www.big-dogs.org/umc/umca24/24Home.aspx


I rode it last year and it was a tough route!! They've chosen a slightly different route this year and have worked on some of the "bugs" from last year's ride .... and it sounds like it'll be a really good event.


If all goes well ... I'm hoping to beat my previous 24-hour best of 442 kms. I'm shooting for 450 kms this year!!

I'm thinking of doing the 12 hour (sun up to sun down race). It's pretty close to me, and I would like to get another 12 hour time trial in this year. As for the 24, probably next year.

I am considering riding the 24 hour time trial event in the Texas Time Trials: http://www.tt24tt.com/. I don't know what to expect, though I hope I beat my previous one day record of 257 mi.

The ride starts in a month ... anyone here going?

How many 24-hour riders do we have here?

I am

I am really looking forward to riding the event again this year. It's a very pretty part of the world with some darned steep hills thrown in so you can take greatest advantage of those views! And the people who run it (UMCA Mid-West) are mighty friendly and helpful.
