IH8URA OPTION: Putting this up top so you see it. First of all, it you are new, ignore this. IH8URA or “I hate you Ray” is called that for a reason (Ray is the guy on our team who made this ride). For those new to the program ”“ this route is for people who do rides like “Happy Happy Pain Pain” and “OMGWTF”. Some say they are not right in the head! These rides are NOT for the faint of heart and probably not for you. It is a ridiculously hilly ride for only our very strongest cyclists. Anyway”¦ WE WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING AN “IH8URA” OPTION THIS WEEKEND. ALL OF OUR ROUTES ARE THE NORMAL SANE ROUTES. However ”“ if any of you are interested in doing IH8URA e-mail Ed directly ”“ If there are a bunch of you he can help you organize (though sags will still not be supporting you). Many of our strongest riders have been doing plenty of hill work, andmany did MOM last weekend. MOM followed by IH8URA this weekend is way too much.

Seriously, if you think 97 “normal” miles is not enough you have lost perspective!!!

OK”¦ on to the ride deets”¦

The last three times we did this I had people voice their disappointment at not seeing all 3 covered bridges. Most routes will not. If you go long you will. If you don’t it’s still beautiful so suck it up! There are “rollers” but nothing soul destroying”¦ and we have leads to help you, so you’re out of excuses. New Z’s get your butts out there.
