Good ride today, We didn't get north of Shaver route in. Still a 170 mile run. Easy take in the scenery ride.
Gee Ben, 85 MPH down the 4 lane?

I'm still very interested in this ride JP but am the most worried about my piss poor fitness level, how many miles a day do you think the ride is? What do you guys do, eat Advil like it was pez candy the next day or what?

I know I could search but where did you sign up? was it a webpage or through the forum.

Thanks

My concern is transportation. I have a truck and tailer that could carry bikes but there needs to be a driver to drop us off and pick us up. We figure that out and I am in for sure........
