I would be honored. 80 per ride is cheap. I paid 250 alone for RAW.

Time to start bumping.......

1-Da House is booked already, so we cannot stay there. My sister suggests:
The Dairyland Motel
The Redwood Motel
Super 8's in Dodgeville and Darlington

The Mineral Point Chamber of Commerce lists other houses, AirBnB's, etc. The Dodgeville Chamber of Commerce, likewise.

Use zip 53565 in your search....

The Friday meal is not on, as I'm not 100% guaranteed to be there, as I await my next assignment. It's also hurricane season, so my next assignment could be "all hands on deck" somewhere.

I still plan the 200K with Kris. On the Klein. Anyone interested in the banners, bike racks, etc, can PM me and I'll make sure they get to the Pavilon, or coordinate with my brother in law.

I was wondering if this thread was going to bump.

This year I'm trying out a bit more cush in the tires. And a lot more potassium salts. Got a little too low in electrolytes last year.

I just locked in my rooms at the Walker House...they have a few left. We have stayed there since 2013. Awesome folks Kathy and Dan.
  • Room 3: Two full beds with shared bathroom right outside the room.
  • Room 11: One queen bed and we can add a single and an extra single mattress to put down at night--with private bath.
FYI

I will do the 200 for sure, but because RAW is now the same weekend, I am thinking I might need to up the milage, will see how training goes, but 250 or 300 is a possibility.

:-)

I'd better hurry up and get a room there. I just nabbed 11; I think 3 is gone and 11 was the last one. Thanks for the reminder!
Now I just have to figure out which bike to bring . . .

I'll likely do the 150k.

This thread needs some bike porn. If I'm going to do the 150, I may just need to bring a bike with a granny or, at least, a serious compact, : ). I could set up this Mercier 300 I picked up earlier this year with a stronglight 99 which makes a fine compact crank. This is how the bike came to me and I haven't touched it. The stronglight drop out has been modded so it will take pretty much any RD. This bike is crying out for a francophile build! The other bike I might fix up is this 1972 Fuji Finest I picked up the other day. This too is pretty much as I picked it up. This will be easy to get going since, unlike the Mercier, it has bog standard dimensions. Decisions. decisions

Cool then I think I will. I need to get it going in any case and I just found some pretty good wheels for it . . . . It does have 3 water bottle braze ons and a rack that will easily hold all the beer. This is how I found the bike with one fugly saddle.

Good deal. I still want to do the ride sometime, but it's looking like it may be too late for me to plan for it this year, and it would be nice to just sell the registration to someone who can use it now rather than logging in and deferring it each year.

Thanks!

Andy Griffith fans: That is "Mount Pilot."
AKA Pilot Mountain now, just south of Mount Airy, which was the fictional Mayberry.

Appears seen from US Hwy 52 North, which is destined to eventually become an Interstate spur.

You get past Mount Airy, and bam!, you're in Virginia and in the mountains, some of which can be seen at the SOTR thread.

Did you notice how happy everyone was on the Andy Griffith show? Did you notice that no one is married...........except Otis, and we see how he spent his time.

I just registered and I have half a bike ready. The other half is still on the drawing board . . .

I'm even starting to think about training for the ride . . ..
