    +1. First time I ever had it work was this past Saturday. Before, my 500 would always produce a corrupted file anytime I tried using it on a 300K or longer. I don't know why, other than to say it...

    Yeah, this proposed ride is the equivalent of doing a 1200K grand randonee. A person capable of doing that sort of ride would not likley be writing what is being written here.

    Because then the ride would be ending in Newark, which would be pretty lame. I am not worried about riding up a couple hundred feet to the bridge. The route has 25,000 feet of climbing, after all. ...
