100k is where it's at! :wink: Mind you, I've never done more than 50 miles on a single speed :( *gulp*


Is there any other option?

I've done this event many times in the past (always on my Ti-fat). Always do the longer ride of the two, if it's dry use semi-slicks and pace your-self!

It's a really good event, most people start way too fast, take plenty of snacks, take it easy and you'll spend all day dropping them! John

John,

it looks quite widespread and not to much into the wilderness, are there any establishments you pass literally en route, one can buy water etc at?
