Nope, but it looks like fun, eh? Really, how can it be?

I'll carry your water bottles if that helps.

And throw in a puppy.

Well I hafta admit I'm intrigued.... but wow... It's not the climbing, it's the distance... I haven't done that kinda mileage this year at all. Will have to ramp up the miles big time.

Wonder what kind of gearing guys are running. Somehow I don't think a 39x26 is gonna do it.

For me it's not either day's distance...it's both back to back; I've never done that before. I figure the climbing won't be god-awful, just a lot of it. I would run the 39x25 but that's because I'm too lazy to switch out the cassette. Come day two, I might have to rethink that...

Our local club has several members riding. They used the Climb to Kaiser, the Death Ride and our local tour of two parks rides as warmups.

Do two empire grade triple crowns back to back and you'll be 60% ready for the challenge. Do them two weekends in a row and you'll be at 80% with a weekend off to rest and recover. Triple crown was 10,000 in 80 miles. Route is somewhere here on rbr. Good luck!
