I’ve been wanting to do this ride for quite a while, but things always tend to pop up in the way of me. Luckily I have been well prepared, and registered way early. We have a gang of people from Buckhannon going, and William Given is meeting up with me for the ride.

Pretty pumped. I haven’t done a 100 mile ride since June of last year, so I’m also a touch bit nervous. I hope to see some of you guys there!

I have not done this bike ride/tour before, but I am tempted to go… 80 miles away from Buckhannon, I’d love to catch a ride, or drive someone else and split the gas money~ There is not a bike shop in Ripley, WV, or anywhere close… I think the closest is like 30+ miles away… Make sure you bring everything you need.
