I would love to do the Chattanooga ride, someday. A good friend of mine lives in Nashville and rides a lot, so maybe I could get him to team up with me, next year. Hmm.

Someday, I'd really like to train enough to ride in the Dairyland Dare: www.dairylanddare.com :

One-day event.

If you're looking for some gorgeous territory in upstate New York with some challenging hills here & there I can HIGHLY recommend the Great Finger Lakes Bike Tour, as sponsored by my local bike club.

I went last year and had a wonderful time and am hoping to get there again this year. Great price for the offerings!

These rides look like fun. Too bad they are so far and the next week is finals week!

My mantra: Exercise frequently! Eat reasonably!

That looks like a really interesting ride - I'd like to try it however that is the same weekend as TOSRV (Tour of the Scioto River Valley) and it's the 50th year. No big elevations or climbs but it's @ 110 down and 110 back - so 2 centuries back to back.
www.tosrv.org/11/index.htm

We have a ride every year here called the Columbus Fall Challenge - 100 miles each day, 2 days total with over 3000 feet of elevation gain each day...It's a goal to try and be able to do this ride some year.

If you're looking for something challenging to train for, here's the website for a ride in Chattanooga, TN.


3state3mountainchallenge.com

It's a very well organized ride that attracts riders from all over.

I've done it the last 3 years, (the metric), and it's a lot of fun.


...and then in the middle of everything, you realize you're alive right now, and the time to live is right now!
