See first post to thread to view.

The snow is almost gone - almost time to go ride!
Is there a special sticker for those who bag 100 in one day?

Feel free to share your adventures and post ride reports as you play along.

ps - Special thanks to Sideshow for the design of the sticker!

How cool is that?? Does it matter when the pics were taken? 2 Friends and I rode all of them several years ago (when there were only 60 or 70) Some great roads!! We were even featured in a WI DOT publication promoting the RR to riders.

24 hours?!?

If you can do that you are a special kind of person. I tried for 20 in one day last year and was only able to bag 16 (NW & SW area). If you can do all of 'em in one day you are Superman in my book.

We'll keep it simple...you turn in 100 suitable pictures, you get a sticker. No need to worry about dates.

I was thinking this was more of a flower sniffing exercise than a sprint.

Of course, some folks just can't resist a challenge .

There are actuall7 107, 104 through 107 were added in Sept 08, and you can google them to get the locations.

Last year I tried to ride all the roads in 1 year, but had to stop in June when my dad's health turned....bad. I am trying again this year, this time on my Patrol.

I have a lot of pictures from last year on my smugmug, xspain.smugmug.com, none from this year yet mainly cuz I'm lazy about uploading and thinking about a website. I am much farther along this year than I was this time last year.

First post? Really? damn. What have I been doing?

Headsd up!

George B from another site noted:


There were only two I didn't like; #50 because it was three miles of loose sand. If there ever was a bonii in the middle of 50, it'd have to be 10,000 points for me to go after it. #51 because it has several stream crossings with big cobbles and 12" of water. "Frequently crosses a trout stream" sounds kinda fun, right? Now that I think about it, #74 sort of sucked too because it was 34 miles of gravel. The bike was limestone gray in the end.

On the flip side, #71 around Stone Lake was the best. Northern Wisconsin at its finest.

#67 just west (if memory serves) of Turtle Lake off of Hwy. 8. I have ridden it three times and about 1 mile into it there is a decreasing radius turn on loose sand - Now I know it's there so maybe I'm psyching myself out but I have almost washed out the front end all three times I have ridden it.

Large pucker factor!! I keep going back to prove I can make it maybe I should quit while I'm ahead. I looked up #50 and I'm pretty sure I rode that one last year also. I really enjoyed it. I'll have to see if I have any pic's to post when I get home.

Well, I wasn't implying that I might try that, but such an incentive might make it irresistable to to certain folks.

Here are some pic's to spice this thread up a little










One of the water crossings on #51 - Not too intimidating:



Now for Dog's sakes people if you wait for 70 degree weather you'll never ride - GET OUT THERE!

We've got a winner!

George Barker braved the March weather and dark of night to bag the last few roads he needed. He documented his efforts here:

Great job George, and I appreciated the way you organized your submittal in mumerical order to make it easy for me to count 'em up! (That's a hint folks ).

The stickers are off to the printers this week.
