The 2013 100 Miles of Nowhere: Plan Your Madness

04.11.2013 | 12:49 pm


I want to take a break today from talking about the cool swag you’re going to get by registering for the 100 Miles of Nowhere to actually talk about the 100 Miles of Nowhere itself. 

You know, a little bit about what the race is and who it benefits. And some examples of some of my favorite race reports. 

I’d also like to encourage you to describe, in the comments section, what you’re thinking you might do for your own version of the 100 Miles of Nowhere.

Where It Came From

The 100 Miles of Nowhere started as a stunt. It was just me, by myself, wondering if I could make myself do 100 miles, in one sitting, on the rollers. I bet a bunch of you that I could, and in the process raised a little money for LiveStrong.

The next year, more of you did it. And then I started asking companies to sponsor it by donating 500 of something they make to be sent out in a swag box. And now it sells out in less than a day.


Who’s Benefiting 

The 100 Miles of Nowhere has traditionally been a fundraiser for LiveStrong. Last year, when LiveStrong took on Camp Kesem — a foundation that puts on weeklong camps across the US for kids of parents with cancer — as a partner, I asked LiveStrong if we could have the 100 Miles of Nowhere funds be directed specifically toward this really fantastic cause.

They were cool with that.

And so now, as you ride around in circles or squares or in your basement or back and forth or whatever else for 100 miles, the silliness of what you’re doing is beautifully offset by an extremely concrete and specific thing: you’re making it possible for some kid — a kid who’s had to live with a parent with cancer — to have an amazingly fun, carefree, awesome week at no cost to that kid’s parents.

By participating in the 100 Miles of Nowhere, you become an agent of good karma. Which is the very best kind of agent there is.

So What Do You Do In The 100 Miles of Nowhere?

Of course, the first 100 Miles of Nowhere was on rollers, and I literally went nowhere. But other — more creative — people wanted to extend this idea and make it more interesting. So they took it outside and rode a very short course, over and over, for 100 miles. 

And sometimes, they sent me their stories afterward, which I found very entertaining. So entertaining, in fact, that I often would post them right here.

And so that became part of the tradition too. 

This has evolved to the point where you could say the steps for performing your 100 Miles of Nowhere are as follows:

  1. Register for the race. Registration will open April April 17, at 9:00am CT. Mark your calendars, because registration is limited to 500.
  2. Define your category. For example, your category might be “Men, age 40-45, in suburban Santa Rosa, riding a recumbent around the block.” Your category should be excruciatingly specific. So specific, in fact, that there’s no chance that anyone but you will win it.
  3. Ride your race. On June 1 or thenabouts (lots of people including me sometimes have to do it on a different day, due to conflicting schedules), do what you said you’d do. Be tough about it. But have fun, too. Remember, this is to traditional bike racing as the sillywalk is to running a marathon.
  4. Tell your story. If what you did was interesting, write it up. Include pictures and video. Send it to me — my email address is I can’t publish every single story that comes my way, but I do publish a lot of them.

What Are Some Awesome Examples of Stories?

Everyone who does the 100 Miles of Nowhere has done something ridiculously epic. There are some folks, though, who have truly raised this crazy event to an art form. Here are a few:

100 Miles of Nowhere from Noodle on Vimeo.

Vehemence of Suckage – 100 Miles of Nowhere from Noodle on Vimeo.

What Will Your Story Be?

I expect that some of you have some grand ideas for what — and where — your 100 Miles of Nowhere will be. 

Tell us about them. 

And good luck.

    I am sooooo exited. It like a Fatty Christmas. Yes a new holiday Fattimas. Tell Hallmark they need a new reason to sell cards. :-)

    Currently going w/ two options, weather dependent. If it is nasty out, it’ll the 100 Miles of Mr Darcy. With me, my bike, a trainer and Colin Firth in Pride & Prejudice… for 6 hours (or as long as it takes, or however many times I go back to “the lake” scene). It it is nice out, I plan real torture, as I take the paved path around a potentially smelly “swamp” (read, drainage ditch that has been turned into a “trail” of 1.3 miles of circl). It’s potentially smelly, and overrun with mosquitos (state bird afterall), so I’m hoping for bad weather and Colin Firth.

    I’m thinking 100 MON relay inside a roller hockey rink. Like the donut race,.. But smaller,.. Oh, and the bikes will be bigger than the donut race, of course… Maybe fat bikes???

    The 2013 100MilesToNowhere (Dobson Ranch Edition) will take place on Saturday, April 20, in a bid to beat the Phoenix heat. Our Facebook page () is up, we’ve announced the event (!/notes/100milestonowhere-dobson-ranch-edition/announcing-the-2013-100-miles-to-nowhere-dobson-ranch-edition/555595534473080) and I’ve got folks signed up and donating! (

    If only my training were as up-to-date as the organizing. I think it will be a *long* 100Miles this time.

    Greetings from the 2011 and 2012 winner of the non-bearded, under-60, recumbent around Frontier Park division!

    It takes 87 laps around the home of Cheyenne Frontier Days to make the full 100 miles. It’s 100 miles and 7200 feet of climb on the day. Both years I have entertained the clean-up volunteers, picked up a bike rider for a few laps, and cried at the end. Bonus to last year was I raised $500 along with my entry fee. I enjoy putting the race number on my bike and explaining it to people on rides like RAGBRAI when they ask, “Where does that ride happen?” and I cheerfully reply, “Nowhere!”

    It’s crazy, but totally worth it.

  7. Comment by John | 04.11.2013 | 1:55 pm

    I’ll be riding in the “Male, 43, First-Time Century, Slightly Frightened but Resolute” Category. And I’ll have a reasonably good story to go along with it if I’m able to beat the sign-up rush.

  8. Comment by Ed | 04.11.2013 | 1:55 pm

    Missed out on this the last few years and have been periodically thinking where I’d ride over the year. After reading today’s blog I may have to become more creative!

  9. Comment by Stuart T | 04.11.2013 | 2:17 pm

    Having a few years back claimed sweet victory in the “Holding a Guernsey Passport with dodgy knees” division (and rather wonderfully having my ride documented by Mr FC)I feel it high time to try my luck again.

    Since I happen to live on Guernsey, an island in the English Channel with perhaps 23 or so square miles to play with, I’m thinking its going to real easy to go nowhere many times over.

    So, here’s the rub. My proposed route – My house to the beach, up over the hill and the WWII bunkers (yes really) back round the corner, down the road dating from the Napoleonic wars and…. repeat perhaps 100 times.

    As I mentioned. Small place Guernsey.

    Hmmm…I’m thinking 10 laps around White Rock Lake here in Dallas sounds like fun!

  11. Comment by Chris | 04.11.2013 | 2:39 pm

    Regarding the t-shirt, shouldn’t the dial farthest to the right be the first to roll to zero?

  12. Comment by SteveB | 04.11.2013 | 2:44 pm

    Not sure I want to commit to this, as an untimely demise might put a damper on things, but I’m thinking of doing 20 laps of my hill repeats course, about 10,000 feet of climbing, on my 30 lb. Trek hybrid.

    This will be in the 50+ heavyweight hybrid bike division. Alternatively, 400 laps around the block … (somehow, 10,000 ft. of climbing starts to sound better and better).

  13. Comment by Kevin C. Swenson | 04.11.2013 | 3:31 pm

    It’ll be 174 laps around the block. It’s 1.01 kilometers, so that’ll add up to 180K (112 Miles). I’ll be racing in teh “Woodlawn Heights Criterium: Fools Training for IronMan Lake Placid division”. In 2010, I won the “Fools Training For IM Japan” division. In 2011 I won the “Fools Training for IM Lanzarote” division. In 2012, I won the “Fools Training for IM France-Nice” division. I fully expect to be a 4-time winner this year!!!

    Details to follow, but for now I will say this: stage race!

  15. Comment by Corrine | 04.11.2013 | 4:05 pm

    We’ll be doing the Farthest North, Under the Midnight Sun, Denali Park, Family Mountain Bike edition of the 100MON. It will be EPIC and you won’t want to miss our story. Husband, 18 yr old son and I (16 yr old daughter will watch the tent and keep it safe from bears and wolves) will ride in Denali Park all night to do our 100 MON. How many wild animals will we see? How long will it take on mountain bikes? Haven’t decided if we should ride 50 miles out and back from Teklanika campground or do some short back and forth over Sable Pass yet. Details after our ride!

  16. Comment by Kristina | 04.11.2013 | 4:17 pm

    I really want to do this, but since I’m horrifically out of shape and planning to begin riding a bike (if this snow will EVER go away) for the first time since I was a kid, there’s probably no way I’ll be able to ride 100 miles this season… which kind of bums me out, because it would be fun to win the first bike race I ever enter. Maybe next year?!

  17. Comment by Kristina | 04.11.2013 | 4:20 pm

    Add-on note — maybe you could have an additional ‘penalty-fee’ for people who want to sign up but know there’s no way they’re ever going to make the full 100 miles. I’d be willing to donate, say, $2/mile to Livestrong for every mile I come up short.

    I love your idea. I think you should sign up for the 100MoN with the proviso you came up with in place. It’d be a great incentive to go as far as you can, and would do additional good for LiveStrong when you’ve done all you can do. Brilliant! – FC

  18. Comment by JL | 04.11.2013 | 5:20 pm

    100 miles of Lambert Park

    Wow. I love that idea. The Hammer and I have been trying to think of a good idea for our own 100 Miles of Nowhere, and I’m really tempted to adopt yours. Just ride all over Lambert Park for 100 miles. It’d make for the best spaghetti-bowl of a GPS ride map ever.

    When are you doing it? – FC

  19. Comment by Nancy_in_MN | 04.11.2013 | 6:16 pm

    Cancer reared it’s ugly head last spring and kept me from riding the 100MON despite scoring a coveted registration and swag bag.

    We’ve had a rough 2 years in the trenches fighting my husband’s sarcoma and all the surgical complications, but things are quiet now and plans are well developed for a very special 100MON:

    The Dark 100MON

    As the name implies, the Dark 100MON will be ridden entirely after dark.

    We believe riding 100 miles in the dark on a flat trail will feel a lot like riding nowhere, since we can’t see where we are going and there’s nary a hill to break up the monotony

    At least 8 of us will be riding. Some, maybe most, won’t score a 100MON slot, so THERE WILL BE POACHING!!!!

    To see a bit about the ride, including the awesome TwinSix t-shirt we’ve trumped up for the riders, visit:

    Soon I’ll be posting more and “shedding light” on our plans.

    @AngieG, YannB, DaveT: Is there thoughts of a group ride? Golden Gate Bridge, Land’s End, or the Pt. Reyes Lighthouse? (Edge of the Pond Division) Wife#1 is contemplating the Canal Path in Kentfield. With enough people we can field a TTT Division. AngieG: nice to see you are still out there.

    a whole bunch of loops back and forth over the Ringling Causeway…

  22. Comment by VA Biker | 04.11.2013 | 7:56 pm

    I will state for the record that really do love Noodle’s videos. They induce compulsive video watching. I don’t remember how many times I’ve watched the 1st one. I think Vehemence of Suckage is part of more than one cyclist’s vocabulary due to her. Mine for sure, only broken out for the worst situations though.

  23. Comment by TominAlbany | 04.11.2013 | 8:11 pm

    I am committed to a Tour de Cure century that weekend. Does it count? Technically, it doesn’t go anywhere, but, it IS a single loop and, not very… ummm… Nutty/Original/Mindnumbing..

  24. Comment by Moctavius | 04.11.2013 | 8:50 pm

    This’ll be my first ever century, and I couldn’t be more excited! I live out in the country so a “ride around the block” would be a two mile loop. From what I’m reading, that’s a little long for a 100MoN course, so I may explore other options. Wherever I end up riding, the wife has offered to record video…!

  25. Comment by AKChick55 | 04.11.2013 | 10:00 pm

    Hmmm, I thought I’d be the farthest north rider, but harumph, Corrine is going to beat me for that honor. My category will be the the Age Group of 29-Again, Second Farthest North 3.5 Mile Loop in South Anchorage. I may ride a loop on all my bikes (fat tire, cyclocross and mountain bike) so I might add onto my division name if I do. that is the plan for now anyway. I’ll use this as a training ride taper for my 62.1371 Tour de Cure ride the next weekend. However, should we be a little farther north in Willow (home of the Iditarod restart), I also have an unpaved three mile loop I can ride as well or the Age Group of 29-Again, Second Farthest North 3.5 Mile Dirt Road Loop Division. I can’t bring all three bikes, but I’ll probably opt for the cyclocross and the fat tire bike.

    Also, I think your Tour de Donut should be on fat bikes this year since Levi picked up the sweetest 9Zero7 this past week (and I missed him boo hoo). I keep crossing my fingers that your next bike will be a fat tire bike. :)

  26. Comment by Hautacam | 04.11.2013 | 10:38 pm

    400 laps of a 1/4 mile running track: Been there, done that.

    112 laps of a 0.9-mile hilly park loop: Been there, done that.

    1 lap of a crazy hilly out-and-back in pouring rain: Been there, done that. See “Dropped by a Bee” report from 2012.

    This year: Leave home, ride generally southeast, stop at 100 miles. No idea where it will be. No specific route. No specific destination. Just go for 100 miles and see where I end up. Literally a ride to nowhere (But hopefully get a lift home!)

    The Marines were my favorite story ever!

  28. Comment by Andrew | 04.12.2013 | 4:57 am

    This is fantastic, and super exciting! Those stories are great. This has got the creative juices flowing. I am thinking something with the kids in tow on a cool route. Set up the GoPros and create some great footage.

  29. Comment by Jennifer | 04.12.2013 | 5:25 am

    I’m really torn about the locale for this year’s race…while the basement (otherwise known as American Girlandia) is a remarkable venue with easy access to the facilities, two other options have presented themselves.

    The first is a lovely 2 mile loop that would have to be ridden 50 times that is fairly flat, right next to a lovely lake and not terribly full of traffic…so the monotony could become a factor. It is also about 5 miles from the house – so any facility usage would be in the wild.

    The second option would be a ride of pain. A 5.12 mile loop (which does conveniently pass by the street for my house) which has a steep (for my noodle legs) incline about halfway through – so by the end of the 20th loop, I will have climbed 10,000 feet and my brain will be addled from trying to do the math of 5.12 miles into 100. So it’s got that going for it.

  30. Comment by mykill | 04.12.2013 | 6:07 am

    @DavidH (and other Marin/SF types): i’m in for a group exercise in ridiculousness as long as we don’t do it on the bridge (over and back once a ride is enough for me, thankyouverymuch). Otherwise i am contemplating doing the Polo Fields track in Golden Gate Park, but i would prob do it midweek and before school lets out for summer so i don’t have to dodge heat-seeking soccer balls.

  31. Comment by Pauline | 04.12.2013 | 6:18 am

    Bill riding his bike around his driveway 2702 is pure genius haha I’m definitely game for this.

  32. Comment by Noel | 04.12.2013 | 9:17 am

    The current plan is for the wife and I to do our 100 miles in 1.2 mile laps around our daughter’s neighborhood. Our daughter, whether she knows it or not (And she doesn’t. Yet.) is going to be our feed zone soigneur, official photographer/videographer, and cheering section.

    We’re really looking forward to it!

  33. Comment by Pat in Westminster Co | 04.12.2013 | 10:22 am

    Alas, due to my very demanding race schedule around the day, Dirty Kanza 200 and the Bailey Hundo, On June 1st I will designate a spot around mile 100 in the middle of Kansas as Nowhere. I will ride to the middle of Nowhere Kansas and have a simple celebration (probable pee and hydrate)and take pictures. I will then start traveling to somewhere, as in Emporia Kansas, to end the ride.

    P.S. I just hope the guys running the race don’t make me ride another 100. I have to be back in Colorado Sunday Afternoon.

  34. Comment by Sara | 04.12.2013 | 10:47 am

    We’ll be doing the 100MON Houston Memorial Park Picnic Loop again this year and will try to do it sometime before the official date since it will be beastly hot by June 1. Although after not riding my bike for the last 4 months, I’m having serious doubts about whether this is a good idea or not…

  35. Comment by JL | 04.12.2013 | 11:37 am

    100 miles of Lambert Park

    Wow. I love that idea. The Hammer and I have been trying to think of a good idea for our own 100 Miles of Nowhere, and I’m really tempted to adopt yours. Just ride all over Lambert Park for 100 miles. It’d make for the best spaghetti-bowl of a GPS ride map ever.

    When are you doing it? – FC

    Was just thinking 6/1 but if you wanted to turn it into a FC-style event I would be flexible…definitely could be a fun party. How many consecutive times down Rodeo until it got really really old? Rodeo only edition would be about 65 laps and 25,000 feet elevation (by my GPS).

  36. Comment by Mike | 04.12.2013 | 12:32 pm

    I’ve never ridden 100 miles to anywhere (max ride so far was 80 miles), so it’s fitting that my first 100-miler would be to nowhere. For the route, I’m contemplating this insane and devious 0.2935-mile loop:

    My calculator tells me it’ll take roughly 340 laps to complete. My biggest reservation about this course is that the tight turns won’t allow me to get up any real speed, so it’ll take much longer than something with decent straightaways. I’m thinking 10 hours isn’t an unreasonable estimate. Yikes!

    Gotta set some reminders for Wednesday morning…

  37. Comment by DavidH, MarinCa | 04.12.2013 | 9:27 pm

    @Mike That is one serious ‘Nowhere’ route. There has to be an In N Out Burger somewhere in Chino you can circle as an alternative. You’re going to need an aid station. Good Luck!

  38. Comment by Lonster | 04.12.2013 | 10:19 pm

    As the current champion of the “Lets Ride Rocky in the Heat”I will attempt to once again ride the Dole Citrus Road Race course and loop over Rocky Hill for 100 miles. Last year we suffered through 100 degree heat and we left one of my riding companions at the 90 mile mark with a car ride home due to heatstroke. I did share my swag bag with my riding companions regardless.

  39. Comment by Jeremy | 04.12.2013 | 11:07 pm

    I’m going to try to keep the stupidity to a minimum this year. Straight 100. Definitely nowhere. Last year was pretty emotional but I think maybe going sub-4:00 on rollers might be a good goal. If I can lay off the beer and chocolate, that might translate into a decent road ride in Davis, too. After last year, I know I am going to have to push to stay with the head of the class all the way to the finish in Davis.

  40. Comment by Dave T | 04.13.2013 | 4:58 pm

    @DavidH we would be up for that as long as you don’t mind our 10 mph to 12 mph pace. Although Rob did manage a 13.3 mph pace today for about 5 miles. He is getting faster.

  41. Comment by Mark | 04.13.2013 | 7:38 pm

    30 laps around our lake, 5700′ climbing. Pretty ordinary, but how about this: I use my three road bikes – change bikes every lap.

    So, Fatty, you’re in the Mountain Time Zone, but you list the registration start time as 9:00 am CT. Is that Central Time? (I assume they all are daylight savings time). Don’t want to miss out because of that little detail!

  42. Comment by Bill H-D | 04.13.2013 | 8:52 pm

    There’s a fine line between genius and idiocy, Pauline. That, or a big, bright red one. I’m letting folks vote on my 100MoN route this year. That just might prove to be more madness. We’ll see.

  43. Comment by Jenni | 04.14.2013 | 6:06 am

    What’s Noodle’s plan? What’s Noodle’s plan?! She keeps sneaking her plans by everyone, I say this year we witness whatever terrible idea she’s coming up with…spill it Noodle!!

  44. Comment by Wife#1 | 04.14.2013 | 3:24 pm

    Okay assuming we make the registration cutoff, Rune (age 9) and I are in as a team in the much vaunted “Mama and Baby Bear” category. More on that later.

    Our planned 100 MON route is a one mile multi-use paved path alongside a canal/tide inlet in Kentfield, CA. Just 50 roundtrips and we’re done.

    I’m thinking 10-12 hours based on his average speed, and mine ain’t much better!

    We want to to set up a little tent (aid station) with signs to try to solicit for donations for Livestrong while we ride. Though not sure how many people walk that path with their wallets. This however will require the support of friends and family to man the table. We also still need to figure out where we can use the loo near that path!

    In other words, I’m working on a good Plan B!

  45. Comment by Fred | 04.14.2013 | 7:01 pm

    This is just about the most ridiculous idea I’ve ever heard of.

    I survived February and March on the Cyclops to get in shape for outdoor riding season. The weather has finally shifted to the happy side of 70°F, and now I’m happily training on the road to survive a 100-mile sufferfest on the Cyclops.

    I sure hope I get a registration spot. I don’t like to poach, but I can’t promise that I won’t.

    My location / theme will be disclosed at a later date (probably not until my post-ride report). I have a list of 4 to 6 possibilities involving varying levels of mental and/or physical pain. It looks like this will be an annual event for me for a while.

    Off topic (somewhat), but where better to crow than on this site. #1 Daughter(age 12) scores her first Strava QOM on a local segment. #1 woman amongst all women(52), and 11th amongst all riders (390) men and women. OK, I’m impressed…and proud!

  49. Comment by Marsupial MattC | 04.15.2013 | 8:26 am

    I ran into Noodle on my Saturday road ride up on Empire Grade! (well, I didn’t actually “run into her”…she probably wouldn’t have taken that very well). I was crusing south and saw an ice-cream kit at the intersection…(the 2013 Fatty gear). Shouted out “hey Fatty!” (which come to think of it, isn’t necessarily the best greeting for someone you don’t actually know). Pulled across the intersection and knew right away it was Noodle…we chatted a bit (she gave me route suggestions).

    And I DID ask her about her plans for the 100MoN this year…but she’s not talking (sorry Jenni…I tried). I also asked if she was gonna come up to Davis this year…turns out she’s been riding “doubles” and has one planned for that day. (btw: I was in the middle of an “EPIC” ride (for me)…and then to find out she’s doing 200 milers…pppffffsssstttt..that was the sound of my ego deflating, like a jumper tent with no power…she would decimate me on any ride I’m afraid).

    I told her what a GRAND time we all have up in Davis…don’t think I sold her though…she’ll need some serious TEAM pressure (we’re gonna need a “full court press”..come on Team Fatty…start to turn up the Heat on Noodle to show).

    Happy Tax Day everybody!

  50. Comment by Wife#1 | 04.15.2013 | 12:11 pm

    @MarsupialMatt I feel the pain of your defalted ego. When last we met my father for dinner, I was so excited to tell him about all the riding I have been doing, which for me, also epic. Then he tells me that my younger brother (who I am NOT at all fond of at this point in time) just did the Solvang Double Century.

    Son of a biscuit!

    Okay well then dad, you probably do not care to hear how proud of myself I am that I am going out and riding 20 miles with relative ease. I’ll just shut up now.

    BTW, still laughing about the “Hey Fatty” greeting, but if it works, it works!

    Seriously want to do this. Seriously out of shape. Oh, and I don’t have a bike. But I do have a Trikke ( – not the electric one, the fitness one) which is close, maybe? And I could NEVER do 100 miles; if I paid Livestrong $2/mile for every mile I DIDN’T ride, I’d owe them about $190 . . . perhaps this little challenge isn’t for me after all, but I still want to do it!

    What a better way to celebrate a third anniversary with my wife! To bad we don’t have a tandem.

    @Travis. Travis, Travis, Travis, heed the wise word about tandems and marriage. It will be the last bike a married couple will ever own….together

    Just signed up, yep 100 miles is a little scary, however it was meant to be, believe it or not I live exactly 100 miles from nowhere. Well nowhere spelt backwards to be exact. Erehwon was the name given to a mythical place that was effectively nowhere backwards (check our Erewhon on Wikipedia for the full story).

    So two funny coincidences, first is that I live 100 miles from nowhere and second the high country ranch specialises in Clydesdales and is known as Erewhon Station Clydesdale Stud. Obviously it was doubly meant to be.

    I flew over from Sydney, Australia, and hot the absolute privilege to ride with Brian Boyden #6419 and Pedro Verdugo this morning in Duxbury, Mass. Despite being absolutely knackered cycling in 32c temps and finished my first 100 miles! What a great idea and event! Thanks Fat Cyclist!
