    Wow that is a long day. What was the finish cut off time??

    The ride started at 6 am on the 14th and you had to be finished by 9 am on the 15th. They give you a lot of time. I sure wouldn't want to be riding that long, though.

    Beyond what I dream... what a crazy amazing thing thing to do... and in such sexy outfits too (love the pic Veronica posted!)

    Well done Mallio, this is way beyond what I can conceive... I am well-impressed.


    Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
    "I will try again tomorrow".

    LOL - I agree but its nice to see that they give plenty of time for the slower riders. Im sure if I ever did the 400km brevet I would need every minute of it.

    Trekhawk who thought 200kms was far enough.

    TH - Well, I think the thinking is you can take a nap during the ride and still have time to finish. I have no doubt you could do it. It's just a question of how much you want to put yourself through.

    RR - thanks! Yeah, it's a nice look, huh?

    LOL - not while your on the bike though I hope.
    Maybe a few years into the future and thats a big maybe but at the moment Im like those old map makers unsure of what lies further afield. The big line after 200kms says "here be dragons".

    Great reports, I had fun reading them. You both have a knack for writing, making me feel like I was actually there!

    Wonderful job on the ride, very cool.
