Registration for the 2014 100 Miles of Nowhere Opens Tomorrow!

07.9.2014 | 4:54 am


I am incredibly excited to announce that registration for the 2014 100 Miles of Nowhere opens tomorrow

Specifically, it opens at Thursday, July 10, at 11:00 AM, EDT. (I.e., 11am EDT / 9am MDT / 8am PDT).

There are a few things that will be different this year. For example:

1. It’s directly benefitting Camp Kesem, a nationwide series of camps put on for kids who have parents who have (or have had) cancer. The idea of Camp Kesem is simple and beautiful: kids who have parents with cancer have missed out on a lot of the fun and silliness that kids ought to have; Camp Kesem helps get them caught up on that fun and silliness. I can tell you that my own twins love this camp more than any other thing they do every summer

2. It’s in Autumn instead of late Spring. With everything going on in my life, this was the earliest I could make this happen. Many of you seemed to agree Autumn works better anyway

3. Instead of a 100 Miles of Nowhere T-Shirt, there’s a 100 Miles of Nowhere JERSEY. Here’s the front (but you’ll have to wait ’til tomorrow to see the back, which is my favorite part):



Yes, the sleeve says, “Finish or Pie Trying.” And instead of yet another orange/black/white or pink/black/white jersey, we’re — for the first time ever — adding red to the palette. The reason is simple: it looks awesome. 

Why a jersey? Because I get asked about the 100 Miles of Nowhere all the time when I’m wearing the t-shirt, but I want people on bikes to know about this awesome thing we do. 

You should also know that this is the ONLY jersey there will be this year

Of course, many of the things about the 100 Miles of Nowhere will be the same. For example:

  1. It will be capped at 500 people.
  2. The swag box will be awesome. I know I said I’d do a lower-key swag box this year, but when it came right down to it, I couldn’t help myself. Sponsors have been extra-generous, and you’re going to be stoked with what you get. More on that tomorrow.
  3. I will want your stories and photos. The thing that makes 100 Miles of Nowhere incredible is that we get to share how we did this ridiculous event. Once you’ve done it — whether on October 18, before, or after — write it up and email it to me. Include lots of photos. Make it fun. I will post as many of these 100 Miles of Nowhere race reports as I can. 

This sells out every year, and lately it sells out on the same day registration opens. So you may want to be ready to register as close to the registration opening time as possible.

And today, I’d love to have you post in the comments section what your 100 Mile of Nowhere plan is (unless it’s so crazy you want to keep it top secret, in which case, post that too), to inspire other race participants.

PS: The Hammer and I haven’t decided yet on our course, but I’ve been thinking about the theme of “fastest” this year. Like, what if we found a nice lonely, flat, short course with right turns only, then took turns pulling each other while riding our Shivs and aero helmets? Could we do a sub-five-hour 100 Miles of Nowhere (breaks included)? It’s an interesting question!


  1. Comment by Liz M. | 07.9.2014 | 5:05 am

    Wow, decisions, decisions . . . I’ve found with longer rides, I prefer “the devil I know” so I’d probably pick a flat-ish part of my commute route and go back and forth ad infinitum. However, my son (age 13) may want to join me. We already have plans to do a 100-mile rail trail in August and he’s been training. If I make that the 100 MoN then he can notch it, too. Hmmm . . .

  2. Comment by Joe Jacobs | 07.9.2014 | 5:43 am

    Oh…and that would be 10 am CDT. You can’t keep the mid-west down!

  3. Comment by leroy | 07.9.2014 | 5:57 am

    Having already dominated the Prospect Park edition of the 100 MoN (by choosing a starting time and telling no one), my dog suggests we try crossing and recrossing the Manhattan Bridge for 100 miles.

    He says if I lead the climbs, he’ll lead the descents.

    But I’m not buying it. His idea of towing includes a bungee cord.

    On the other hand, we could use Citibikes for some of the trips (at least until the rental time expires).

    I’ll need to think a little more before committing to the course.

    But committing to the event is a no brainier. And my dog advises I’m particularly well-qualified for no brainers.

  4. Comment by Joy | 07.9.2014 | 6:09 am

    Fatty, you couldn’t possibly be as excited as this newbie is (double newbie – new to cycling and new to centuries)! I’m in a suburb of Dallas, TX, so October is like a nice, shiny, non-blistering-heat gift. I’ve been considering a 10 mile (round trip) paved bike trail (done 10 times). The trail ends with a loop at a boring intersection, so pretty much nowhere. The only exciting thing about the trail are the squads of deadly squirrel assassins. I think it fits the bill for 100 MoN.

    But if anyone in the Dallas area would like to team up with a nervous-but-determined super newbie, you can contact me through the site linked to my name above. I think having someone to ride with would increase the fun factor (and probably make a better ride report)!

    I am also thrilled to be able to support Camp Kesem. Thanks for helping us help others, Fatty!

    @Joe Jacobs – thanks for sticking up for us CDT-ers. :)

  6. Comment by Stef Ellis | 07.9.2014 | 6:27 am

    Last year I swore I would never do this event again on a trainer… However by the time this event rolls around I will be about 2 months post partum, so I’m thinking slow pedaling and survival…probably on a trainer ;) we shall see

  7. Comment by ScottyCycles62 | 07.9.2014 | 6:46 am

    Love the jersey colors!
    I have in mind riding at least 10 flat mind-numbing laps of the Strand Hwy in Coronado. Half will be head or cross wind. Half has scenery half has a big brown road berm to look at!
    I also want to try and use that to fund raise for World Bicycle Relief

  8. Comment by pbrmeasap | 07.9.2014 | 6:49 am

    West Virginia will be in the house.

  9. Comment by pbrmeasap | 07.9.2014 | 6:54 am

    Are you going to have 3xl jersey’s available? I am a true FAT CYCLIST AT 250LBS.

  10. Comment by Adam P | 07.9.2014 | 7:02 am

    100 miles, on a turbo, blindfolded.

    No way of watching the time, or miles tick by. Just pain, suffering, and misery.

  11. Comment by Eric | 07.9.2014 | 7:05 am

    There is a great little 5 mile trail that loops up the hills behind my neighborhood. 3.5 miles of hilly single track with 1.5 miles of wider trails through the greenways of the neighborhood. (Can they still be called greenways when they turn brown in the Colorado summer?)

    20 times around that small a loop would make me dizzy. It could be nice having an aid station on my front porch.

  12. Comment by Doug (Way upstate NY) | 07.9.2014 | 7:35 am

    Going to be in Michigan this fall. Going to need to find a new stupid loop. :)

  13. Comment by BostonCarlos (formerly NYC) | 07.9.2014 | 7:43 am

    Will there be matching bibs available for purchase? And socks? and a Hat? How will I look pro if I don’t have a full kit?!

    Super excited for the “race” and inviting all New England riders to join me as I ride 100 miles with 8500 ft. of climbing on Concord Ave. from Belmont to Waltham and back (11 out and back trips).

  14. Comment by Mike | 07.9.2014 | 8:14 am

    Oh man, I have an appointment at that time, hopefully I can sneak a few minutes on the smartphone to get registered! The jersey looks awesome, really looking forward to it. Haven’t really thought about what course I’ll do this year, but hopefully it’ll be as good as the 0.45-mile loop I did last year. :)

    Speaking of last year and #3 (stories/photos), I was late and never got a chance to send in my video from that. Maybe somebody’ll enjoy it:

  15. Comment by Al Pastor | 07.9.2014 | 8:29 am

    While on vacation, I came across a spot that would be great for 100MON.,-0.152335,17z

    Not exactly convenient for me to get to.

  16. Comment by cyclingjimbo | 07.9.2014 | 8:30 am

    Super excited, and have set a reminder so I don’t forget to act early.

    The Philadelphia Main Line will be represented. There is a nice mostly flat loop near my house that has lots of right turns and no traffic to speak of. The loop is a little over a mile, and it goes right by my house so breaks will be easy to manage. As with any small loop course, the biggest problem is likely to be keeping track of the number of trips around the loop. Category(ies) still to be determined.

    If anyone in the Philadelphia area wants to join in, let me know.

  17. Comment by Dave T | 07.9.2014 | 8:32 am

    Rob, Amy and I are in. Not sure of the course yet but Rob is riding well so I think we will try and do this over 2 days this year. I love the jersey.

  18. Comment by ClydeinKS | 07.9.2014 | 8:34 am

    LOVE the jersey idea and Kansas City will again be represented! Sadly I don’t see the possibility for a joint fundraiser this year with the timing but will definitely be looking at bringing others along! I need to plan a route that doesn’t intersect with little league traffic, although that season may be over by mid Oct. Same route, new route, or back on the trainer? Oh the options! Yay #100MoN!!!

  19. Comment by Corrine | 07.9.2014 | 8:44 am

    Love the jersey. Anxiously awaiting for it to be 7 AM here in Alaska so I can sign up. As mentioned, I plan to bike up and down my road 20 times. About 800 feet elevation gain in 2 1/2 miles x 20 times equals about 16,000 feet elevation gain on a mtn bike. Yikes, this will be brutal. But now that I’ve put it in words, I guess I have to do it. I LOVE the 100MoN!!!!!

  20. Comment by gonetobeach | 07.9.2014 | 8:56 am

    I’m new to your blog… Today is my first day. I’ve JUST started training for a century, as in I have not tired more than 10 mile trips so far, but 10 miles is pretty easy. I bet by October I can do 100. So my question is, how are the funds raised? Is it the cost of the entrance fee?

  21. Comment by zeeeter | 07.9.2014 | 9:38 am

    I’m probably going away from the 100 feet of climbing per mile route I did last year, something a bit faster and flatter maybe. Anyone in SoCal want to join in and suggest somewhere quiet?

  22. Comment by Turt99 | 07.9.2014 | 9:55 am

    I already did my 100 Miles of Nowhere this year (June 7th). I did it on my driveway on a stationary trainer. I raised $600+ dollars for The Ride for Karen which sends kids with cancer to camp. I might just need the Jersey to make it official and give me a reason to do it again :)

  23. Comment by New Zealand Ev | 07.9.2014 | 10:05 am

    I have a couple of loops in mind here in Christchurch, NZ. Just need to decide as Oct will be in the middle of Magpie season. If you don’t know what Magpies are and how they dive bomb you in the spring it makes flat rides very challenging. Looking forward to doing the 100MON in our spring down here instead of the winter.

  24. Comment by SteveB | 07.9.2014 | 10:26 am

    I’ve not decided yet what I’ll do (assuming I get one of the much coveted spots) – thinking of either 233 laps around the block (.43 miles per lap) or 10 laps of the Cañada road time trial loop… Jersey looks great. If anyone wants to join me on Cañada, we could do it on a Sunday when the road is closed to cars and get some sort of rest stop set up. Also, for those of you in Newfoundland, that’s 12:30 pm.

  25. Comment by HyperSprite | 07.9.2014 | 10:26 am

    I am in for sure.

  26. Comment by Chase | 07.9.2014 | 10:40 am

    I’m not sure about my route yet. I’m thinking either really flat with a local high school’s track or a .5mile or so loop with a short steep hill out of the town square. Maybe up the hill for some laps and reversing the loop to go down for others. We’ll see.

    Either way, I’m excited to do it again!

  27. Comment by Fellowfattychris | 07.9.2014 | 11:18 am

    This will be the first time I participate, only because this is the first I have heard of this event. I just started reading your blog this year. I now find myself checking your site multiple times a day while at work, eagerly waiting for a new post to arrive.

    I plan on riding the short distance from my home over to Sugarhouse Park, then riding the road around the park 71 times before heading back home. I like your idea of going fast. I think this park is perfect because of the dedicated bike lane and no stop signs or lights to deal with. The park does have a couple of hills, but they are short easy climbs that won’t force you our of your big chain ring the entire ride. I’m going to use my Trek Speed Concept with my Giro Air Attack Shield helmet. I thinking sub 5 hours including breaks for this course as well. You’re welcome to join me if you are still looking for a fast course.

  28. Comment by davidh-marin,ca | 07.9.2014 | 11:19 am

    Yeah!!!! Now I know why Fatty has 31 people in a house in NC.
    Stuffing the swag bags, and getting ready to take all the phone calls from the registrants. I wonder if they’ll televise it like a PBS Fundraiser?

    DaveT(, SteveB, YannB, Hypersprite, UptheGradeinSR: Pretty sure we could get a decent group together somewhere….or maybe better that we all ride ‘nowhere’. Good luck to every one!

  29. Comment by wharton_crew | 07.9.2014 | 11:21 am

    Mike, great video, thanks for posting it! Also, good job on avoiding the squirrels. I believe there was another MoN’er that had a story about a suicidal squirrel – I’ll have to go look that up.

    My loop this year will be a round-about that’s about .4 miles, so I’m looking at the Texas 250 edition of the MoN. I would love to get a group, so we can draft off each other. It would be EPIC!

  30. Comment by RonB | 07.9.2014 | 11:30 am

    7.5 loops in the dark around Lake Natoma on the American River Bike in Fair Oaks, CA

  31. Comment by KM | 07.9.2014 | 11:41 am

    I am tempted beyond words…..I even have multiple mind numbing routes with a potential MTB, CX, Road bike twist. Regardless it all comes down to funding, my corporate backers are picky….once I see the expense I’ll have to have time to pitch the race. I eagerly await the opening of the registration.

  32. Comment by bob | 07.9.2014 | 11:49 am

    Denver IN!

    And not for some flat route either oh noooo!

    It will be big! Unless it’s snowing…

  33. Comment by Frosty | 07.9.2014 | 11:58 am

    100 miles of Bennett Park, single speed and single track edition of the “Worst Trail Ever”! Last year was paved and geared, this year bring on the single.

  34. Comment by AKChick | 07.9.2014 | 12:31 pm

    Double SQUEE! I’m so excited! I’m not sure about the course yet because it will depend on the weather. October is a transition month in Southcentral Alaska. If there is snow, I might end up riding my fat tire bike. There I’d a short slightly over 3 mile loop in my neighborhood but not sure I want to do that. I do have a fancy spin bike with Google maps so I could do a true 100 MoN. I’ll be poised and ready in the morning!

  35. Comment by Bykjunkie | 07.9.2014 | 12:35 pm

    The rout will either be 2.6 mile laps around this little base or six times up and down Mt Vesuvius.

  36. Comment by MattC | 07.9.2014 | 12:43 pm

    @ Mike, GREAT JOB on both your 2013 100MON AND your video! Loved the opening ’split’ screen showing backwards and forwards at the same time! And I was thankful that no squirrels were harmed…whew! Very well done! (and also, CONGRATS on your ’survivorship’!)

  37. Comment by davidh-marin,ca | 07.9.2014 | 12:56 pm

    Since you had the ’seal bark’ of approval from MattC had to check the video. And as usual MattC was Right! Great Job! and thanks for sharing.

  38. Comment by Kamala | 07.9.2014 | 12:58 pm

    Going to hit the Coastal Trail in Anchorage 5-6 times. It’s not super small but I’m new here and lacking for ideas that won’t get me splattered on the road.

  39. Comment by ScottR | 07.9.2014 | 1:44 pm

    I’m definitely hoping to join in again (and ClydeInKS, Little Blue Parkway up in Independence, MO might be an alternative if you are interested) – but what will the registration cost be this year?

  40. Comment by Brian | 07.9.2014 | 1:47 pm

    I am thinking 400 laps around the walking track in my neighborhood. Is that nowhere enough?

  41. Comment by Scott | 07.9.2014 | 1:55 pm

    I’m looking at a mountain pass, so I may bump up the date…a lot!
    Last year did 300+ times around the block, this year I’m going bigger and longer (way bigger and WAY longer).
    Love the jersey.

  42. Comment by Jeremy | 07.9.2014 | 2:04 pm

    Hmmm… October 18 in Oregon could be nice or complete yuck. I may have to have an outdoor and indoor plan. Maybe I should piggy back it with a Knight of Sufferlandria attempt. Maybe I should loop around Jerusalem Hill a few times and toss in some climbing. Maybe I should just roller it with my kids again. Tough call, but at least I have time to ponder.

  43. Comment by Amanda | 07.9.2014 | 2:06 pm

    Stumbled across this through some twitter repost- Absolutely in love with the idea! I’m a totally new rider, haven’t done any sort of “races” yet. I’m ready to adventure to No Where

  44. Comment by davidh-marin,ca | 07.9.2014 | 2:23 pm

    We need a collective ‘PIE” shot for the finish.

  45. Comment by jonboy | 07.9.2014 | 2:31 pm

    I think I will revisit my 2012 course, a half mile loop around Harrisville City Park.
    I promise I did finish, my battery in my phone just died before I got to 100 miles. I know, I should have ridden faster.
    We should have two or three of us drafting around the course. Only left turns, so we feel like nascar drivers.
    I think it would be really funny to line up people on the sidewalk in front of my house, on trainers like we are drafting off one another and rotate positions each hour.

  46. Comment by Caleb | 07.9.2014 | 2:35 pm

    Been thinking it’s about time to do another century. The problem is that I hate climbing…and I live in Colorado, where all the centuries have tons of climbing…. But I think I can handle the “SoBo Century in a Garage” division!

  47. Comment by Joe | 07.9.2014 | 3:46 pm

    100MON purist, will bust out the kinetic trainer early this fall!

  48. Comment by Jamieson | 07.9.2014 | 4:40 pm

    Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn representing.

    In yet again this year, will have to figure something silly out with all the bike lanes. May have to work out some sort of street-level Strava writing, 100 MON PIE spelled out by riding up and down streets.

  49. Comment by Kristy in MD | 07.9.2014 | 4:53 pm

    If you are near Hagerstown, MD come join us. We are going to do a one mile loop with a snack stop….every mile! Seems a good enough reason to make this a team fatty party.
    Anyone interested?

  50. Comment by Celina | 07.9.2014 | 5:27 pm

    SUPER EXCITED! Last year due to recovering from a bad fall that took out my knee, I did the whole 100 miles on a reclining stationary bike… even in bike shorts, my backside was WAY SORE by the time it was done (12 hours! Yikes!). I’m happy to say that my MoN this year will definitely be in the saddle of my trusty steed :) I’m currently considering a 5 mile loop around Santee (CA) Lakes, or the 1 mile loop around Qualcomm Stadium (The Qualcomm Criterium). Depends on if anything is going on at the Stadium… last year, the Feast of San Gennaro was going on, which would have made the Criterium a LOT more difficult, avoiding cars and festival-goers. Decisions decisions! The only easy decision is participating!

  51. Comment by ClydeinKS | 07.9.2014 | 8:03 pm

    @ScottR – That will be considered! Is that where you plan to ride? I have toyed with the idea of the downtown airport but open to other locations and a chance to draft!

  52. Comment by Gretchen | 07.9.2014 | 9:05 pm

    Since I’ll be 10 months post-op from hip FAI/labral repair surgery in October, I may go with the trainer, but try to beat my time from the 100 MoN I did in 2012 on the trainer. This will be my first event since surgery and I can’t wait!

  53. Comment by Fred | 07.9.2014 | 9:25 pm

    The Triangle area of NC will be there.

    I may do something epic with the Cyclops.

    Mid-October is about the peak of the foliage change on the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC. How ridiculous would it be to set up the Cyclops at a Parkway overlook site and NOT ride the parkway in mid-October ???

    That’s just one of my ridiculous ideas.

  54. Comment by davidh-marin,ca | 07.9.2014 | 9:37 pm

    @Fred I’ll see your ‘parkway’ and raise you Golden Gate Bridge, mid span. Maybe the first 50 miles facing south into the wind, and then 50 miles north with a tailwind for the ’speed’ finish.

  55. Comment by AKChick | 07.9.2014 | 10:34 pm

    @Kamala I’m in Anchorage if you want to try to meet up before and I can give you some tips on riding. The Coastal Trail is quite nice though. If you’re interested, my email is AKChick55 at hotmail dot com Several FoF’s can vouch for me including our very own DavidH. Wait, that may not be a good thing. ;-) I tease! DavidH is married to the bestest woman on the planet.

  56. Comment by Jeremy | 07.9.2014 | 10:45 pm

    The tweet about the Sufferfest sponsoring leads me to wonder: Sufferlandrian flag and the front of that jersey share a pattern. That Knighthood attempt seems like the right idea. Anyone else dumb enough to try it for the 100 Miles of Nowhere?

  57. Comment by buckythedonkey | 07.10.2014 | 12:39 am

    Four of us completed the 100 MoN on Sunday the 1st of June, once again completing 160 laps of the Inner Circle in Regents Park, London. Funds were raised for for The Lily Foundation and the Motor Neruone Disease Association.

    Everybody finished in perfect weather, fuelled by amazing cakes and the company of friends (two of whom rode more laps than I thought was possible aboard Boris Bikes). It was a hideous mental challenge, fighting the tsunami of boredom all the way!


  58. Comment by PaulW | 07.10.2014 | 3:34 am

    Hope we can register from outside of the US!

    If all goes to plan, I’m setting up my turbo trainer in the main reception at Kingston University, and hoping for support from ~10000 students and staff.

  59. Comment by PaulW | 07.10.2014 | 5:15 am

    …. Kingston University in London UK!

  60. Comment by Wife#1 | 07.10.2014 | 7:30 am

    Have started recon on a new route for what will be our second 100MON. Once again I will be pursuing a win in the highly coveted “Mama Bear” division (she who rides with one or more youngish cubs, is infinistely patient, and makes sure above all else they are safe and FINISH… at all costs). Oh, and without self-medicating during the event. ;-)

    Be awfully nice this year to accomplish three things compared to last year.
    1. Have even a little bit more elevation than last year. We may have set a record for the flattest 100MON last year.
    2. Start AND finish in daylight rather than starting AND ending in the dark. :P
    3. Get both cubs riding with me this year. It was just Rune last year, Sage had hurt herself. Of course the ride itself is not the problem, it’s getting a 10 and 13 y/o out on their bikes enough in the next couple of months that they are ready for that much time in the saddle.

  61. Comment by Fred | 07.10.2014 | 8:48 am

    Anybody have a link to the registration site ???

  62. Comment by Mayhemnsuz | 07.10.2014 | 8:49 am

    I’m super excited for this. I’ve wanted to do it for years and this is the one! DC has a number of boring options, (Hains Point, anyone?) it’s a matter of finding the perfect place to get it done. Can’t wait!

  63. Comment by cyclingjimbo | 07.10.2014 | 8:56 am

    Waiting and watching for registration to open!

    After a quick exchange of emails with the kids, it appears we will have a small team out on the Main Line – our son, daughter, and son-in-law will be joining in as 100 MoN contestants, each with his/her own category of competition, with our daughter-in-law and grandchildren staffing the rest stop cum lemonade stand. Assuming, of course, that we can all get in.

    Party time on the Main Line! Could be our own exclusive version of the Tour de Donut, only with cookies and lemonade.

    There’s plenty of room for Philadelphia friends of Fatty to join in. Brats and pie might be involved at the end of the day.

  64. Comment by zeeeter | 07.10.2014 | 9:03 am

    Wonder if Fatty’s webhost somehow noted an unusual spike in traffic between 7:59am PST and now on their servers. Just sayin’

  65. Comment by Dave | 07.10.2014 | 9:05 am

    Where is the registration link???

  66. Comment by 8one6 | 07.10.2014 | 9:06 am

    Seconded on the “where’s the link” question.

    Poised over the keyboard–can’t wait to register!!

    You should know by now. It’s called “Creating Suspense”

    My Daughter worked all year with an awesome group of people at Penn State that volunteered and raised money so that 10 kids will get to go to Camp Kesem in PA this year.
    I am so proud of her!!
    I have also participated in the 100 MoN for 2 years. I am looking forward to trying for year 3!!!

    I can imagine the phone call to Twin Six as we speak.

    Fatty: “Are you ready? My servers are bursting into flames!”
    TwinSix Tech: “Ready? Ready for what? You said Friday didn’t you? Seriously? Hold on, I’ll cut some code now . . .”

    I’m on a webinar that I can’t even focus on until the link comes up…..

    I’m heading to Emerald Isle and looking for a beachfront house large enough to hold 31 people. Shouldn’t be too hard to find.
    I’ll be knocking on doors in about 2.5 hours.

    Maybe Fatty’s too busy watching the end of today’s Tour stage to post. But you would’ve expected an auto-post . . .

    Any registration link on twitter?

    @Fred Look for a smaller house. There’s no way they listed 31 people on the rental application, and actually got accepted.

    Now I know how my students feel when I forget to post their online quizzes ;

    So far this has not been a very productive morning at work.

    For those who can’t wait, the SKU is active on the T6 site now:

    Sadly, $150 is too rich for my blood this year.

    There must be another hurricane in North Carolina.

    Okay guys – check twitter – apparently there are some problems – but he’s promising to tweet when it’s live.

    Evening news report: Productivity across the world dropped precipitously earlier today as loyal Fridns of Fatty eagerly awaited the link for 100 MoN registration.

    I will note that I was kidding about the Tour, but the link did go live as soon as the Gorilla won the stage, so maybe I should’ve been serious . . .

    Now to decide on a route. Do I repeat laps of the local hill loop, go all out for Sierra climbs, or repeat laps of the local beginner loop. The Sierras are calling but 10,000 plus feet in 100 miles makes me ponder how much suffering Is in order.

    I’m glad the registration link showed up.
    My plan to knock on doors in Emerald Isle could have gone badly in a number of ways.

    How exactly does one knock on a stranger’s door and ask “Hey… Is Fatty in here ???”

    I’m safely registered, and I haven’t had my cranium reshaped by an iron skillet. It’s been a good day.

    Still pondering my route options.
    October is a good time frame. It gives me time to make some inquiries with the folks at Guiness. There may be a World Record attempt involved.
    My effort will not be extraordinary. The extraordinary dumbness of my effort probably means that I will be the first (and therefore fastest) to attempt/complete it.
