Respect and amazement

I have been following the Moab Rim ride posts with eagerness as I ponder what it takes to complete 100 miles across Moab terrain unsupported. Maybe even with one gear. Maybe with a HT or perhaps, gasp, a fully rigid SS. Amazing. So, 10 hours and 40 minutes to complete the route for the winners?

What can I say. It makes me want to ride longer and plan stuff that I know will never approach the level of this Rim Ride, but I can push myself anyway and bring others along for the ride, thinking that one day I will show up for the White Rim in a Day, or the Rim Ride, or Camp Lynda.

Likely never happen.

But I thank all you that set the bar so high. A guys gotta dream, ya know.

You will be surprised how far you can go. When the mind and body are in sync, and you've prepped a bit, there is no boundary.

Only thing left to do is try it.
