Just out of curiosity - how many cyclists out there in bike forum land would be interested in meeting other cyclists to attempt a triple-century bicycle ride.
The goal is to gather strong cyclists into a group so as to make a quad century possible for the greatest portion of those entering the ride. This ride isn't for showing off or winning, its about a demonstration of group riding skills and like-minded determination.
The idea is to create a "special event" that boasts a remarkable amount of "miles ridden" by accomplished riders within a 24 hour period.
If I could get four or five riders interested - I would consider hosting - if not in fact riding the event. This event - if i host it - would be in the southern Illinois area, just 50 miles east of St Louis.
I'm going to ride for 24 hours next month regardless- send a PM or comment if you interested in joining me. This could be a great training experience for those interested in riding for time at PBP.......
(wow did I just post that?)
