Start Getting Ready for the 2012 100 Miles of Nowhere

04.3.2012 | 11:20 am

I’m really excited for this year’s 100 Miles of Nowhere. Which seems weird, somehow. One should not — obviously! — get enthused about the prospect of riding 100 miles in one’s basement or around one’s block or up and down the same stupid hill over and over and over until one wishes one could simply hit oneself over one’s head and slip into blessed oblivion, right?

And yet, I am excited for this year’s 100 Miles of Nowhere.

And I believe that you will be, too, as soon as I tell you about what I’ve got up my sleeve. And I will tell you, eventually.

But first, I need to explain what the event even is, for those who are new to the idea of this event.

What Is The 100 Miles of Nowhere, And Why Should You Do It?

The idea of the 100 Miles of Nowhere is to ride an infuriatingly small course for 100 miles (or 50, or 25, but ideally 100), to raise money for the fight against cancer. And also to demonstrate that you have no sense at all.

The 100 Miles of Nowhere is a race without a place. It’s an event in which hundreds of people participate . . . all by ourselves.

You’ll have fun. You’ll be miserable. And, thanks to the fact that there won’t be hundreds of people all over the place, you almost certainly won’t have to wait for fifteen minutes to use an overflowing portapotty.

And you get some pretty decent bragging rights. Namely, if you take some good pictures of you (and your friends) doing the 100 Miles of Nowhere and send me a good writeup, I’ll post it on the blog.

Also, you get to claim that you won your division . . . since you get to create your own division. For example, I am the four-year consecutive reigning champion of the “Alpine Men’s 40-45 Year-Old Award-Winning Blogger” division. Which is a pretty big deal, if you ask me.

Most importantly, though, is the fact that you’re joining Team Fatty in our ongoing fight against cancer. And that matters.

What’s the Status of the 100 Miles of Nowhere?

I am hard at work right now with the Twin Six guys, working on the T-Shirt design (by “hard at work,” I mean that I give them bad ideas and they ignore them and instead give me great designs based on ideas of their own). And, because I am really great at multi-tasking, I’m also hounding companies to be Swag sponsors of the 2012 100 Miles of Nowhere.

I’ve got some good sponsors on board already, and am working on more. I’ll reveal who they are . . . soon. Because I am mysterious, and a little bit of a tease.

Registration will start next week, and will be strictly limited to 500 paid registrations (plus whoever beats me in the weight loss challenge, which I’m afraid is going to be practically everyone). Which is to say, I’ve learned my lesson and — unlike last year — will not add additional registrations this year. Once we get to 500, we’re done.

The event itself will be on June 2. Or another day near June 2, if you happen to already have plans on June 2.

For what it’s worth, if you happen to be interested in joining my own particular crazy course for the 100 Miles of Nowhere, I’d love to have you come along. Depending on course conditions, it will either be the climb of the Alpine loop, or Suncrest (like last year).

What’s Going to be Special About This Year’s Race?

I’ve got a story to tell. It’ll take a while. Stay with me; it’s worth it.

Of course, the 100 Miles of Nowhere is absolutely ridiculous. And — if you’re lucky — fun. But there’s always a serious purpose behind it: helping in the fight against cancer.

And, as you know, I am a big supporter of LiveStrong, so that is what we’ve raised money for in all prior editions of this event.

Lately, though, I’ve been thinking. And about a month ago, I wrote my thoughts down and sent the following email to Doug Ulman, the CEO of LiveStrong:

Hi Doug,

I’ll try to keep this reasonably short, but honestly, long-winded is more my style. So if I’m not terse, I’ll at least try to be interesting.

There have been a number of events that have happened recently that have really gotten me thinking about LiveStrong, Team Fatty, and how I can be as useful as possible.

  • A new blanket warmer at a hospital: Last summer I sponsored a local race — the Utah Tour de Donut — to raise money for a new blanket warmer in the cancer center where my late wife went for treatment. It was a no-brainer thing to do; I remembered Susan talking a few times about how cold she was while getting chemo there. She would have appreciated a blanket warmer. So it was a nice tribute. A few weeks ago I went to the hospital where they had a nice little “Thank You” ceremony and put a “Fight Like Susan” plaque on the blanket warmer. While this was probably my smallest fundraiser of the year (I only needed to raise $4K for the blanket warmer), it was incredibly touching and meaningful and made me want to do more to help.
  • World Bicycle Relief: One of the cool side-effects of my blog is that I’ve gotten to help not just with LiveStrong (and other anti-cancer causes), but I’ve also gotten to know Johan Bruyneel and work with him fundraising for World Bicycle Relief. We raised enough money last summer to buy more than 1000 bikes for kids in Zambia. WBR has made a great video I put on my blog recently, showing some of those bikes being given to kids whose lives will be changed by having those bikes.
  • A kid in my neighborhood needed money for treatment. A teenage boy in my town — I’ve met him and know his parents a little, but that’s it — has really aggressive Hodgkins Lymphoma. And no great way to pay for treatment. So I did a weekend-long fundraiser where the proceeds from my new book went to his treatment. I sold more books that weekend than I have before or since.
  • The American Fork Canyon Half Marathon: Last summer I was on the organizing committee for a new local half marathon in my community, with all proceeds designed to go to local people who could not otherwise afford cancer treatment. Even in its inaugural year, we netted $50K.

What all of these things have in common is that they are really small, targeted, achievable missions. They’re things people can understand and get behind, and then celebrate and say, “I made a difference, and there’s something I can point to to show what that difference is.”

And what I would really love to do is — both personally and with my readers — engage in more of these kinds of projects.

While I can (and definitely will) fundraise with my team toward the LiveStrong Challenges, I wonder if that’s really the most powerful way for me to help. I wonder if maybe there’s some small, targeted mission a guy with 20,000 daily readers might be able to accomplish with LiveStrong. Something we (you, me, my readers) can point at and say, “We saw a problem, we attacked it, and we made a difference.”

It’s the kind of thing that gets people energized to do more. This is a lot to chew on — probably too much. But I appreciate your taking the time to read it.

I look forward to helping LiveStrong, in any way I can.


Elden “Fatty” Nelson

Doug replied right away, inviting me to an event that happened last week — The LiveStrong Assembly — saying he thought it would be a great place for me to find exactly that kind of project to get behind.

And he was right.

Meet Camp Kesem

One of LiveStrong’s Community Impact Partners is Camp Kesem, a (from their website) “college-student run summer camp for kids with a parent who has (or has had) cancer. [The] one-week sleep away camps are a chance for kids 6-13 to have a fun-filled week and just be kids.

Camp Kesem (“Kesem” is Hebrew for “magic”) was represented in force at the LiveStrong Assembly; I got to know some of the counsellors, and I got to understand their mission: letting kids who’ve been affected by having a parent with cancer catch up on being a kid.

As a dad of kids who mostly remember their mom as someone who was sick or dying, the idea of this camp really resonates with me.

And it resonates with Doug Ulman, too — here we are together, wearing very awesome Camp Kesem headbands (which are acquired by making a $5 donation to Camp Kesem):


Right now, there are 23 Camp Kesems across the U.S., and they’re looking to add more all the time.

But they need help.

And that’s what this year’s 100 Miles of Nowhere is going to do.

Big Goals

What I want to do with this year’s 100 Miles of Nowhere is raise $30,000. That money will go to LiveStrong, which will then turn around and donate it to Camp Kesem.

And Camp Kesem will use part of that money to launch a brand new camp — one in Southern Utah, which I’ll be sending the twins to this year (so watch for their camp report late this August).

And the balance of that money will go toward sending kids to existing camps (no child has to pay to Camp Kesem).

I hate the way a parent’s cancer robs kids of what should be a fun, carefree time in their lives.

And I love the simple, direct way Camp Kesem is addressing this: by giving kids some of that fun, carefree time back.

And I appreciate you joining me for the 100 Miles of Nowhere. As always, we’ll have fun. As always, we’ll be doing something in the fight against cancer. But this year, we’ll be getting a little more specific about who we’re helping, and how.

    I’ve not done the 100MON before. First time for everything eh? I’m in. Wonder what height of route craziness I can come up with in Southern California . . .

  2. Comment by yannb | 04.3.2012 | 11:40 am

    Great cause Fatty. Count Karen and I in for 100MON. I will start recruiting my friends for another fun 100MON. Anyone in the sf bay area want to join us?


  3. Comment by NYCCarlos | 04.3.2012 | 11:56 am

    I’m in for a 3rd year! This year, I plan on riding a trainer or rollers in a ridiculous location in NYC. anyone who wants to join is more than welcome.

  4. Comment by Dev | 04.3.2012 | 12:02 pm

    Awesome, where do I sign up!!

    Since I am overweight 232 pounds was 265 a couple of months ago before I took up cycling, my 100 miles to nowhere will probably be like 20 miles to nowhere I could maybe do 2 more miles before I passout but its a start.

  7. Comment by TK | 04.3.2012 | 12:14 pm

    Count me in. I actually mappped out my route yesterday. I hope I am one of the first 500 people to register. I don’t need much (or anything) in the way of free stuff…I just want that t-shirt! (I like helping a good cause too, of course.)

  8. Comment by Rica | 04.3.2012 | 12:17 pm

    Elden (I can’t call you Fatty – in comparison to me, you’re more like “Beanpole),

    We met at the LIVESTRONG Leader assembly (that’s my checkered card in your pocket… that’s right… don’t throw it in the wash). Actually, we met 2 years ago at the 2010 LIVESTRONG Challenge when my son, Zach, ran up to you to get a picture taken – there were 3 people he wanted to meet – Lance (duh), Doug (cool, eh?) and you.

    This year, that same boy, now 13, and his sister, we call her “Boo,” will be going to Camp Kesem as I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July. I’m so excited because, thanks to efforts like yours to help LIVESTRONG support and expand Camp Kesem’s availability, my kids will be able to form bonds and a support network unique to their situation and close to home (which relieves a burden, as it seemed we’d have to drive several hours had the Columbia University camp hadn’t opened its doors).

    What you do is fantastic. What LIVESTRONG does is fantastic. And, patting m’self on the back, what I do is fantastic.

    But what Camp Kesem does is MAGIC.

    Todah Rabah, Elden! (That’s Hebrew for “Thank you.”) And YASHER KOACH! (Which loosely translates to, “Well done – do it with strength!”) It’s Hebrew for “You’re doing a great thing – keep it up!”

  9. Comment by Michelle "Cheerio" | 04.3.2012 | 12:19 pm

    I’m the Camp Kesem SUU Camper Care Coordinator, and I was thrilled to read about this! We look forward to having your twins at camp, and we are so grateful for your awesome idea :)

  10. Comment by LIVESTRONG | 04.3.2012 | 12:24 pm


    You rock! Camp Kesem is a fantastic group. They were blown away by your unbelievable support. So great to see you in Austin last week. You and your team are changing lives!

  11. Comment by Scott | 04.3.2012 | 12:30 pm

    Love it! Have you selected a camp name, Fatty? Or maybe Fatty is your camp name!

  12. Comment by Ripkenfan | 04.3.2012 | 1:14 pm

    I was running the other day looking forward to this announcement, thinking it had to be coming soon! I am in this year for certain. Too many times I’ve wanted to do it but held out for some reason or another. I’ve already got my route and race division picked out.

  13. Comment by P Gutty | 04.3.2012 | 1:14 pm

    NYCCarlos, I will be in NYC, and provided that I don’t (for the third year running) find myself out of town on the day of the 100MON, I’d definitely be interested in joining you somewhere ridiculous.

    I’ll miss my movies, though.

  14. Comment by Pocket | 04.3.2012 | 1:53 pm

    Fatty, We are blown away by your generosity… and we cannot wait to welcome your twin girls to the Kesem family this summer. With our deepest thanks, Pocket (Jane Saccaro, ED, Camp Kesem)
    PS Is your camp name going to be Fatty? If not, we’ll come up with one for you.. :)

  15. Comment by Liz | 04.3.2012 | 2:19 pm

    Nicely done! I would love to participate again this year.

    Last year, it was an extremely hot day and I bonked, resulting in only a metric (I did do the full 100 MON, but on a later date). This year I will have to start at the crack of dawn or before — it’s my husband’s birthday that day — so hopefully that will avoid the worst heat if mother nature repeats.

    That camp sounds great! What fun. Best wishes to all the campers and their families.

  16. Comment by Dave T | 04.3.2012 | 2:30 pm

    Rob and I are ready to do this again this year. Like last year it may take more than one weekend for us to complete but we will.

    Yann and Karen
    Rob, Amy and I will join you.

  17. Comment by Fuzz Martin | 04.3.2012 | 2:31 pm

    Can’t wait. I’ve been telling everybody I’m doing three centuries, this year. I love when people ask, “Where is the 100 Miles of Nowhere?”

  18. Comment by NYCCarlos | 04.3.2012 | 2:33 pm

    P Gutty – I’d love some company!

  19. Comment by Christina | 04.3.2012 | 3:03 pm

    YES! I’ve been wondering when registration was going to open up and to hear that we get to support such an AWESOME camp is even better.

    100 Miles of Nowhere was amazing last year. I never thought I’d say that about riding in a circle 87 times. Now I can’t wait to do it again.

  20. Comment by mykill | 04.3.2012 | 3:05 pm

    I am definitely in! I would like to join the rapidly growing Team Bay Area i see forming here. Any route ideas? Preferably that don’t involve anything with “Mt.” in the name?

  21. Comment by Laura | 04.3.2012 | 3:17 pm

    I’m in too. Been waiting for this since I first read about it.

  22. Comment by Ginger Schminger | 04.3.2012 | 3:21 pm

    I’ve wanted to do 100 MON since I started reading the blog, but it’s the same weekend as 24 Hours in the Canyon (another AWESOME fundraiser for the Harrington Cancer Center in Amarillo, TX). Can I double up and count the miles I ride that weekend to the 100 MON? Please, oh please, oh PLEEEEEEEASE say yes!

  23. Comment by Son | 04.3.2012 | 3:41 pm

    Fatty — if the 100 MON registration is next week and the weight loss challenge doesn’t end for two weeks, how do we ensure that we are in if we aren’t sure we’ll be able to beat you in the challenge?

  24. Comment by Justin | 04.3.2012 | 4:31 pm

    Count me in.

  25. Comment by Jeremy | 04.3.2012 | 5:02 pm

    I am so incredibly in. The 100 MoN has been a goal event and major fundraising tool every year. I’ll probably be staying up late to ensure I get registered, again. I’m such a sucker for a good time and a good cause.

  26. Comment by Andrew | 04.3.2012 | 5:23 pm


    I’ve not managed to get on the 100MTN in the past, I’ve watched the event from afar. Since reading the competitors race reports last year I have been recruiting. Also, I think I have worked out how to use the time difference between Australia and the US to my advantage when it comes to registrations.

    I love the idea of ‘Camp Kesem’, I also love the idea of your targetted approach. If I make the cut (and even if I don’t) I’d love to organise something for a live strong affiliate organisation down under (Sydney AUstralia). One that comes to mind is ‘Camp Quality’

    So what’s your view on someone participating the the 100MTN and targetting a local initiative? Of course I’d love to do this with your blessing as ‘Team Fatty’ is something that I really believe in, even from afar.

  27. Comment by Andrew | 04.3.2012 | 5:26 pm

    Sorry but I don’t get the abbreviation MoN?

    100 miles to nowhere hits me as better abbreviated as MtN or 100 M2N.

    Am I kissing an Americanism here?

    I am in, alerts set, every time Fatty makes a post between now and registration will be bought to my attention, this includes his tweets.

  28. Comment by Limey | 04.3.2012 | 7:12 pm

    I’m in, missed last year, not going to make that mistake again. 100 MON looks so much better in real money (km). 160.9344 KmON. Anyone in Bucks County PA want to join us.

  29. Comment by AKChick55 | 04.3.2012 | 7:17 pm

    Well. Dang. I was going to skip this year since I plan on riding several charity events, but I just can’t say no to this. Also, I met Rica in Austin last year with her kids (smart kid her son is – I wanted to meet you and Chris Horner – got to meet Chris and hope to make you acquaintance in Davis). She’s AMAzING! And brave. Now I have to figure out a course and see if I can talk my coworker into doing this. Wonder if he’ll see my comment. :)

  30. Comment by Nurse Betsy | 04.3.2012 | 7:18 pm

    Need to get myself in shape. Would love to do this again! I fell off a horse last year and need to haven’t been on the bike since. But will start riding and getting myself together…..Woo Hoo. How fun.

  31. Comment by Doug (way upstate NY) | 04.3.2012 | 8:14 pm

    Awesome. Cannot wait.

  32. Comment by davidh-marin, ca | 04.3.2012 | 8:19 pm

    @Yann, Karen and the Thompson clan. I would like to join y’all as well (I’ll bring PIE) if I don’t do something spontaneous (and stupid) like traveling 600 miles to ride 100 MoN in Utah.
    MattC are you game for a trip to Utah??

  33. Comment by Chris | 04.3.2012 | 9:25 pm


    Any chance Twin Six could offer a bad-ass jersey to go with the 100 MON this year? I’m in for the challenge and wouldn’t mind adding another Twin Six jersey, a special edition Fatty 100 MON would be awesome.

  34. Comment by Lori | 04.3.2012 | 9:40 pm

    Oh that’s just fantastic! The girls get to go to camp. I think this will be really good for them. What a great cause.

  35. Comment by Andrew | 04.3.2012 | 10:51 pm

    Just climbing the Alpine Loop once is a challenge for me. Can a wimp like me join you on your course even if I only plan on doing 50 miles?

    Absolutely! – FC

  36. Comment by Scott R | 04.3.2012 | 11:23 pm

    I love the idea of backing a specific project – I especially love that even those who aren’t 100% confident in LIVESTRONG can participate in this, knowing how the funds will be used.

  37. Comment by eclecticdeb | 04.4.2012 | 1:13 am

    Hmmmmm…maybe, just maybe this will be the year.
    @Andrew: MON = Miles Of Nowhere (not “to” nowhere). :-)

  38. Comment by Rumpled/Jim | 04.4.2012 | 2:13 am

    Hope I make the 500 cutoff for my second year. Instead of something like 429 laps of my 0.29 condo complex, this year I will do 3 x ~33 miles on the Aliso Creek Trail to Cook’s Corner as an out and back. AI’m planning on Sunday 6-3-12.
    Each stop at Cook’s will probably include a beer.
    Anyone in Orange County want to join me?

  39. Comment by jcurtis | 04.4.2012 | 2:19 am

    As an adult who lost a huge chunk of childhood to my mother’s cancer, how could I not be in?! Thanks, man … this resonated with me.

  40. Comment by Andrew (From Sydney) | 04.4.2012 | 5:44 am


    ‘Duh’ the sound I heard in my head when I realised I’ve been misreading Miles of Nowhere as Miles to nowhere ever since I first read it. Thank you for pointing this out to me.

  41. Comment by Tim the Austrian | 04.4.2012 | 7:13 am

    I’m in..

  42. Comment by ClydeinKS | 04.4.2012 | 7:22 am

    I am IN!! Yesterday I got to thinking of a location/route and came up with 1.5 mile loop, just thinking permission to access may be highly limited.

    Anyone in the KC area have a connection at the Kansas Speedway?? 66 laps with banked turns, no climbs, what a dream!

    Probably wind up the trainer…

  43. Comment by Jacob | 04.4.2012 | 7:24 am

    I’m thinking about doing it this year. I know you said that the idea is to pick out a short route and do it a bunch of times, but I’m thinking about riding my bike to the beach. That’s about a 100 miles. I’m not disqualified for having a destination, am I?

  44. Comment by davidh-marin, ca | 04.4.2012 | 9:05 am


    As long as you’re willing to ride back to complete the ‘loop’. Hah!

  45. Comment by Anonymouse | 04.4.2012 | 9:40 am

    Fatty — If we are in the weight loss challenge, how do we know whether to sign up for the 100 MON? I don’t want to miss registration if I don’t beat you, but it sounds from this
    post like you are going to treat weight loss winners as being additional 100 MON entrants, not part of the 500.

  46. Comment by Demonic1 | 04.4.2012 | 10:14 am

    Do aero bars and wheels make a difference? I’d like to get this done as fast as possible. I’m also considering bottles full of carbs, aka “beer” during the ride. How will this affect my performance?

  47. Comment by bykjunkie | 04.4.2012 | 10:46 am

    I thought I was going to be deployed again and have to do the 100 miles on a spinner AGAIN! But I’ll be back in the US by June and get to ride a real bike again around the block!! As long as the net is working over here next week I’m in!!

  48. Comment by Rob W | 04.4.2012 | 10:54 am

    Is there a designated day that 100 MoN will take place?

  49. Comment by MattC | 04.4.2012 | 11:26 am

    @davidh….uhm, well…after reading about last years ho-down on the alpine lp, I was actually planning to head up there and join Fatty & friends for this event in 2012. However…I’m STILL over in the UK (been here since Jan 20th), heading back home Apr 20th,

    THEN I’m heading up to Colo Springs on the 30th of Apr for the entire month of May…with LS Davis just 2 weeks later (I think…what day is it on again in June, the 10th, right??)…I just need to get home and sleep in my own bed for a bit (also, I have done nearly ZERO fundraising for Davis this year…with no opportunities whatsoever while I’m on work-travel…so I’ll most likely be self-fronting most of that $250 this year…which will really suck away my very limited ‘travel-fun’ money I”m sad to say.

    Maybe NEXT year!

  54. Comment by Dan.weise | 04.4.2012 | 1:25 pm

    I hope to get in this year. I’ve been late the last 2. To echo others, this is an awesome opportunity to help kids. Who could say no????

    I’m hoping to do it on the 2nd, somewhere Flat here in Vegas. If all else fails, around the block I go! .42 miles per loop time 238 loops!

  55. Comment by Kukui | 04.4.2012 | 1:27 pm

    This will be my first ever 100 MoN! So excited!

    This is an awesome cause! I did 100MON last year and would like to sign up for it this year, but I’ll be on the Colorado River next week when registration opens. Can I register early????

  57. Comment by Rosie | 04.4.2012 | 2:55 pm

    I won’t do MON this year, but when the time comes, I’ll make a donation to this. Thanks for bringing this worthy cause to greater attention. !

  58. Comment by ldsphi | 04.4.2012 | 4:04 pm

    I’m here in the Utah and will be doing 100 miles to Fatty’s. Provided he is still planning on cooking brats?


  59. Comment by AKChick55 | 04.4.2012 | 5:35 pm

    Woo Hoo! I actually have ONE other person to do the 100 MON this year!! And we have our very flat course mapped out. Of course, it is usally pretty windy, but we should have tailwinds on the turnaround.

    If there are any Fatty fans in Alaska that would like to travel to Anchorage (if you aren’t already here – Zak in AK?!), we are going to ride the multi-use trail from Bartlett High School to the Eagle River Transfer station and back 7 times (or 104 miles). We are going to leave a car at either end for nutrition (and beer?) breaks. :) I’m using this as a training ride for Davis, though it’s pretty flat, the headwinds should make up for that (unless we get lucky and have a day without them, which really pretty much never happens).

    So if you’re in Alaska, let me know!!!

  60. Comment by D.Quix | 04.4.2012 | 6:02 pm

    I can’t wait for this year’s 100 miles of nowhere. What a great cause!

  61. Comment by pedalpink | 04.4.2012 | 8:35 pm

    Great choice. Like a few others, I spent my teenage years at the hospital doing my homework at my mother’s bedside as she fought cancer.

    This will be our third year participating in the 100MoN, once again hoping to win the tandem division. Hmm, I wonder if we could arrange to have some kid guest stokers?

    @Andrew – Jack refers to Monterey Jack cheese:

    It’s a distinctly American cheese. I’m sure Gouda would do nicely though it’s hard to grate, perhaps Havarti?

    Hope this helps!

    As a survivor of childhood bone cancer who shouldn’t be able to bike I’m in. You should see if you can’t get Honey Stinger to sponsor (doesn’t Lance own them, maybe he’d ride 100 miles on rollers to join in).

    I just hope I can be one of the few who get in on the registration.
