Update!

I am still working on my IBR ride report/novella,
but here is some interesting reading in the mean time:

Iron Butt Rally Blog/Info/Scorecards

Newspaper Article about the IBR & The Cyclesmiths

Cal24 Ride Report

Newspaper Article about me & the 10 n' 10

I am going to attempt to put together an account of my 10 n' 10 ride as well,
if/when things slow down at the shop this winter...
Yes, working on this website is no picnic, that's for sure.  
But when I'm not laboring away at the computer,
I'm off experiencing the serene pleasure of Long Distance/Endurance rides.  

For those of you who are not familiar with the Iron Butt Association,
they are a group of people who share a love for SAFE long distance riding.  
(Or, as my husband calls us, "lunatics".)  

The Iron Butt Association sets forth strict rules and regulations governing rides;
those who meet the exacting standards of documentation and "successfully solve the challenge of time and distance"
(in the words of IBA president Michael Kneebone) receive a certificate, a license plate back, a pin, and sometimes a patch.  
More importantly, you receive bragging rights and membership into an exclusive club where everyone shares my unique brand of insanity.  

The minimum ride required to gain membership into the IBA is to travel 1000 miles in under 24 hours;
the ultimate ride is the Iron Butt Rally, a grueling 11-day, 11,000 mile competition open to a select group of riders,
determined by lottery, every two years.   

In any event, you can learn more about the Iron Butt Association by going to
www.ironbutt.com  

Since time is of the essence, I do not usually take many (if any) pictures on Iron Butt runs.  
This page will be more of a tally sheet of my rides,in order of completion.  
(Some of the rides were completed concurrently.)

Also keep in mind that the clock does not stop running when I stop to eat or rest -
the time listed starts when I gas up the bike to leave, and doesn't stop until I gas up in my destination city.

I may start posting blogs of my rides, too, since I usually come home with at least a few interesting stories.  
But for now, just sit back and imagine how your butt feels after riding 2,612 miles on a sport bike.
