Thanks for starting the thread again Beanz!

I am planning on the 508 and think that the BF group is planning on having a couple of teams.

I am planning on splitting the Hoodoo 500 with one other guy and completing the 508 as a team of 4. I have enough other events and occurances this year without worrying about training for a solo 508 attempt.

Probably why I won't attempt it. I'd like to do it alone, but I don't want to train!

Now I see the photos (since I am at home) and I understand wanting to do the route solo instead of being paired with him/her/it...

This is not that bad, and just think of how much beer I am going to want to drink after riding 1/4 of the 508!!!

9/15 HooDoo 500 (either 2) - 512 miles, ~30,000 feet of gain
9/22 Everest Challenge - 208 miles, 29,035 feet of gain
9/29 Moonlight Magic - 100 miles during the full moon, 2850 feet of gain
10/5 Furnace Creek 508 (4 people on the team) - 508 miles (duh!), ~35,000 feet of gain
10/11 Great American Beer Festival - Denver, CO, 5280 feet of gain
10/13 MS150 Bay to Bay - 150 miles, ~4500 feet of gain

and that woman is not half he, she is twice the man I could be!

After the Everest Challenge the century the following week will be like a recovery ride, and Ill see ya in Denver to make sure enough of that beer gets drank.
