    Bailey Hundo

    100-mile race in Buffalo Creek area in June. Bet if this goes well, it gets big in the future.

    This is great for mountain biking in Colorado. Hard not to get enthusiastic when four state senators are pushing for a 100 mile endurance event. The course profile looks brutal. The climb out of the Platte at the 70 mile mark = suffer.

    already?

    Invitations will be available by lottery, and applications will be available at www.bailey100.com, as of April 26th and will be accepted until May 19th, at which time invitations will be sent out.
    that's worded like invites wouldn't start until the 19th.

    did you pledge a whole bunch of money?

    I just looked at the route. Doesn't look like it'd be worth my time.

    I just pledged a normal amount. Keep in mind you can raise money but the email I got looks to be a mass generated email saying multiple people were in. My guess, not many people are applying due to the miles and vertical gain along with a mostly fireroad route. Still its a good cause so hope I can raise what I pledged. With riders like Wiens and Brown coming, I'm hoping for a 2nd to last finish.

    not very accessable

    If they are trying to draw attention to the riding options in Bailey, they might make it more accessable by having a shorter option or 2, and open it up to more participants. I doubt I could do 100 miles at this point in the season. And, it looks like an exclusive, invite only deal. Is that going to help me learn about riding in Bailey? I doubt it. I'm a COMBA/BMA memnber too. But good idea, we need more riding options.

    I don't think the overall focus is to draw attention to Bailey as a riding option. The trails we'll be riding is everything we're all familar with in the Buffalo Creek area, the rest is fireroads and jeep trail. From what I'm understanding the focus is raising money for at risk youth and to get them on bikes.

    OK, makes sense then. I don't get to BC often, and cruise thru Baily when coming back from CB, etc. Have fun.

    I found some of the info on the site confusing. Specifically, the route profile looks to show just over 100miles of riding, but the route map looks like it's roughly 100km (if the various markers 'BH00' through 'BH65' are mile markers).

    What am I missing?

    The climb looks brutal on the route profile because of the scale. But, from looking at the elevation at approx the 80mi mark and again at just before the 90mi mark, it looks to climb just shy of 2000' in just shy of 10mi. 200' per mi is no big deal, unless it's really technical trail at that point. If it's fire road, shouldn't be bad at all.

    Yes. That climb is primarily dirt road.

    Chris Romer convinced me to ride last night. I'm in.

    I met Chris @ WRC one afternoon, he told me of their preliminary plans. He seems genuinely excited/supportive of cycling in all forms, so I'm particularly interested in the event. I sent in my 'indication of interest' yesterday. I don't ride that area often enough to be familiar with the trails from just looking at the route map, but I'm very excited about possibly getting in, regardless.

    Coming June 19th - Notes from the Bailey Hundo:

    I’m one of three guys that laid this course out. Confident that this course will challenge the most burley dirt riding sole! One of our missions was to create a course that has varied terrain, so not to favor a “specialist”. The start takes you out of downtown Bailey on a rolling road for 6ish miles allowing the stronger riders to get up front and string out the field so we don’t bottle neck at the beginning of the Colorado Trail! Bring your single track skills because the mostly single track and two tracks trails will bring you to the 55ish mile marker. You’ll need to eat and drink while on the river road because the climbs get hard on the way over Stoney pass. SO….. Can you finish in the Hundo in 13 hours?
    The planning and support that has gone into this event will be sure to put this race in the top 100 mile events to do!
    • Please give the Senators that put this race into motion some positive feedback!
    • The good folks from the Bailey Chamber have stepped up big to make the reception, aid stations and awards party really nice.
    • Special thanks to both North Fork Fire Department and Platte Canyon who are working with me to ensure your safety.
    • The money is going towards a great cause(s)!

    The Hundo -Enjoy the ride!

    So, what's the deal with the route map? It looks like 65 miles, but the profile shows over 100. What's the real deal?

    Those are just markers from the gps.
    It's a 100 miles. I might have to make some slight changes for the finish area depending on land use issues.
    Keep you posted.

    Great course! Forgive me for the stupid question: by self-support, does that mean no outside support or can you have your own crew hand out food and water? I probably won't be ready for this one, daddy day care is eating up my ride time, but I might have to try this one in the fall on my own.

    Aid stations? It would be nice not to have to carry a filter...all I really need from outside would be fresh water, where would that be?

    Click "Go Advanced" button at bottom of thread, then scroll down and there is an "upload images" button to attach files.

    You would probably want the bailey100.com site owner to get it on the web site though so it is clear...anyone doing the ride will need this info.

    Water, Bananas, power gel stuff, Gatoraid and hopefully fig newtons!
    Any requests?
    Wheat Ridge Cycles will have mechanics on the course to help out too.

    PB&J is always a favorite - Later aid stations (if cold out), chicken noodle soup is awesome and can't beat a nice Coke when warm out.
    Thanks

    do you have a .crs file? or .gpx or whatever. something to follow? or even some turn-by-turn directions. looks pretty straightforward until the end of the CT? (waypoint BH45)

    thanks.

    Let me know if you don't hear something in the next couple of days. CoMBA still has some spots (I think).
