I'm probably going to regret doing this because last year I did and then I miserably failed at attaining my goal and now everyone who reads this (me) knows it. But, since part of the joy of cycling is suffering and humiliation is a form of suffering, I'm doing it again. For 2009, here are my plans, so far:
28 February, 2009: Zion Spring Century, St. George, Utah (100 miles)
28 March, 2009: Tour de St. George Spring Century (100 miles)
Some time between 27 March and 17 April, go up to Yellowstone again and ride from West Yellowstone (West Gate entrance) to Gardiner, Montana (North Gate entrance) and back with the guys.
2 May, 2009: Ghost Town Century, Tooele, Utah (100 miles)
27 June, 2009 - Harmon's MS-150 (100 miles)
28 June, 2009 - Harmon's MS-150 (75 miles)
24 - 25 October, 2009 - Livestrong Challenge, Austin, Texas (100 miles) Which, by the way, if you haven't donated yet, you can here. Or here. Or here.
Planned, but not yet scheduled rides:
Desperado Dual, Panguitch, Utah (200 miles)
Salt Lake Century, Salt Lake City, Utah (107 miles)
ULCER, Utah Lake (111 miles)
And, hopefully either RAGBRAI or Seattle to Portland...if I'm lucky.
All of this, of course, dependent on me getting off of my lazy ass and back on the bike, which I've not really ridden since September. Partially because of this, and this but now also because of this:
That's the view out the window to my left as I write this.
