The There and Back Challenge!

This hasn't been done for a while and I wanna do it this year before it gets too late .

Hoping the same silly Buggers will do it with me and more are welcome .

The 3 man team worked really well last time we did it , 98 miles and it took 11 hours , should be easy to beat.


The route will be the same as last time ,

Moody Hill
Donners pass
Monument Gulch
Seven Mile
Swamp Creek
Killpecker

then we will turn around and ride them all back!!!

THERE WILL BE NO BYPASS'S!!!!

The first year the start at Moody Hill resembled something like a demolition derby, there were bikes down from one end of the hill to the other and the same carnage continued up Donners Pass this year i thought that we should stick to smaller teams .

Link to the last one ,

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=502948

We just need to sort out a date and one that doesn't clash with YP"s ride .

Any ideas or takers?

I read the report from the last one, and I can't believe I actually found a post from ole meterpig that I agree with, NEVER admit to one single drink or you will always end up doing the silly road side tricks.

This sounds like a great ride, but I'm afraid my new unplated bike will not be legit, whats the deal with that? ANy pavement?

There is about a 10 mile section of paved road going up Poudre Canyon that you need to be plated for.

I go to OCR on Monday to see how bad I buggered my shoulder. If it isn't torn, I am IN!

If it's torn, well

I'm in if 309's in.

This sounds like the perfect ride. . . can we do it tomorrow?

I can ride on the 17th or the 25th. . . or the 1st (assume my chances are slim).
