first- tried searching to see if there was already a thread on this--- but the search function on this site is horrible and I didn't have three days to week may way through "matches".
second- anybody participating in this? It looks pretty cool. I sent an email last week and got no response. Noticed it was updated, was wondering if maybe the email addy is out of service.
post if you are doing it- interested in hearing about others trying this sort of stuff (and like the idea of a non-race situation where you are just going riding for yourself etc.), or post if you have contact info.
I drank my morning coffee from my 2007 cup today. Depending how you approach it you can find all you want in a personal challenge, I think. My first 2 were at the Dirty Kanza, I did not do any more until August of that year, I just wanted something to do for the fall. Nice long days on the bike, I did a couple back to back, one on my single speed townie, and, because I got sick for most of the month of October, I had to do the last 2 in late December with heavy snow. All my ride reports are here if you are keen:
I have my 2008 Cup o Mud sitting on my mantle right now, and just snuck in one for 2009. I managed 11 in 2008 and 6 in 2009 (plus some metrics). If you plan ahead and look at the weather, a January Hundy isn't hard to do. Ours in 2008 was about 111 miles IIRC, high of about 32. They're a lot more fun with friends.
