    sandy 100

    Thursday, 8-4, one of our regular rider's will attempt 100 miles. Doing the the Wharton 40, and, the Black Run rides, we average 7 miles an hour, other sections of the pines, we do better, 9 mph. So, that means 14+ hours of riding. Seems like a long day to me. I'm going out after work, to see if I can guide him back to his car. I would like too know, if any one rides century's(in the sand), and if so, what your average's. I think a guy in Vt. is planing a century in the snow this winter,but, that has yet to be determined.

    Our average speed on the beach a couple weeks ago was 7mph. Sand was firm and consistent. We used 26 X 22 for gearing, which was fine.

    At 10:00am, I called Ken; How you doing,you should be at 30 miles, he wasn't, he was 26 miles and 1 flat. The next section will be a little faster. At 11:00am got a text; Ongs Hat 31 miles. At 2:00pm left message; 8 hours, you should be56/60 miles. Heard back about 2:30pm; Brook derail. hanger,fix and riding, miles 51. I think at this time, I would call it a day. Bob and I meet at 4:30pm at the midway point with our bikes. Called Ken; 57 miles. I know the trails and roads well enough to get us to ware he's going, we meet up at 6:00pm, Kens miles,67. He has to finish the 20 mile loop, then, the 12 mile trip back to his car. We road together until 7:15 pm. He had another flat. Fix, and good by and good luck. Got a text at 10:00pm; leaving Batsto, 85 miles, heading back to the parking lot. He should be done at midnight. What's the difference between nut's and crazy?

    I love it. That's perseverance, do all of his trip have so many issues?

    I think it's a mile to issue ratio.
