A Christmas Story Saddle Sore ride?

As some may know, I enjoy Long Distance riding, specifically IBA rides. A Saddle Sore is 1,000 miles or more in 24 hours. There needs to be witnesses, documented fuel stops and a traceable route for it to count.

With that said, who is down for "A Christmas Story" Saddle Sore ride? The house from "A Christmas Story" is open as a museum. With some slight out of the way routing, a trip from my house in Jersey City, to and from Cleveland is 1024 miles. Just enough for a Saddle Sore.

10 hours out and 10 hours back, leaves us 4 hours for the visit, which is more than enough.

Leave at Midnight on a Friday Night and end up there for 10 AM opening. Back by Midnight Saturday Night.

I will get all the paperwork and witnesses set up if you guys are in.

LMK.

I think this Friday is a great day to try it.

Sounds like a cool ride but i'll probably be near dead & bloated from thanksgiving overindulgences to even think about a long distance ride. Let me know if you need a witness though. Ride safe...

Short notice for me.
If it wasn't for me having to work Friday, I'd be up for it.
Have fun!
