    Here it is on RWGPS. I think it downloads into the Garmin better from there: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1171493

    Totally wimped out on this one...did 40ish miles though, so that's gotta count for something. As much as I love riding, doing it in cool/cold weather just takes a lot of the fun away for me. I guess I just need to HTFU.

    I could not do this due to schedule constraints. I know some of you made it, so congrats. I am just sad they are not doing a Turkey Takeoff this year -- for once, the stars aligned and I actually could have attempted it! They will do the Festive 500, but I'm not sure I can do that again. Too much riding around in the dark by myself -- blah. Not festive.

    I was looking for Consularrider and your silver R3 all day. At the last minute I was a lazy brain and just took the easy route to Purcellville and rode around there for a bit. I ran out of road at the 50 mile mark:


    nice scenery


    I used gears today

    dcv, there's something wrong with the bike in your photos. The pedals don't move when the wheel does...

    Uh oh. I've got a motorcycle sitting out back, and, well it's mostly sat out back. Fun to take out from time to time. But I'd never really looked at it as another bike. Might be time to sell . . .

    I know, and it has water bottles too. Eminva spotted me today but was confused because I was riding a bike with gears.

    I was surprised to only get one serious inquiry on mine, which thankfully panned out. Otherwise, I'd have probably had to wait until March or so for the buyers to wake up from winter hibernation.

    We had fun getting dirty. Finished up the challenge in a pretty good way.
