    Was planning on doing this but its going to be a day-of decision for me. Burned up my lungs riding with a cold last sunday. Felt better today and went out for an easy lunch spin. Resting tomorrow and saturday...fingers crossed

    I did this event in 2015. Had a great time getting my ass kicked.
    They started by saying it was 8 miles. That changed to 10 miles,
    that changed to an actual 12 miles, whew! The surprise comes when
    you turn around and get hit with the head wind. I DNF'd but still had fun.
    and a free drink (Jack Daniels) on the house for entering.

    I was thinking of this too but I need a beating in the rocks again. I'll be playing at the short track.

    @rustynuts you should try a short track race in the next two weeks. Perfect for your first race. Fat bike class, a not so climby course and short 40 min race time. And on the beach race....where were you? 30 people had a blast fighting a head wind in 14 degree weather on a beautiful beach!
