Congrats! The 100 km is plenty of training on the best part of the course and then you get more time with the beer truck. Win win!
That's a good time for Mohican 100k!
I didn't even look. Wow, that *is* good!
When I hit the Km/M split CP this year I thought 'what the heck was I thinking last year' … the thought of being less than 1/2 way at that point would have made me cry this year.
Kevin Simms won the 100 km masters this year. He used to do AR - way back
I remember Kevin and Wendy from my early AR years. Cool!
Totally agree. Both years at the Km/Mi turn-off, I was SO happy to be heading toward the finish in time to enjoy some sunshine on the lawn. The riding is more intense - very different from AR. That was plenty. Not that we didn't enjoy watching you eat dinner after 9 p.m. last year while we enjoyed drinks. :)
This year I think I'd had two dinners by that time.... and working on a third in town while the Bruins pummelled the Blues.
BTW... last year I found the prices at the 'resort' to be about 'normal'... after eating/drinking at the Trails End and the pub in town I'm thinking of Loudonville a retirement option... unbelievably inexpensive AND friendly!!!
One couple saw us walking/hitching into town as it started to rain .. they turned around on the hiway picked us up and took us to the pub.
Then when we enquired about getting back to the campground the owner of the pub went and tapped a guy on the shoulder, said a few words and the guy got up from his dinner (that had just arrived) and drove us back!!?!?! He wouldn't let us refuse and wouldn't even eat his dinner first... just told the waitress 'keep an eye on this for me'!!
… in retrospect I had been drinking for >8 hours at that point.. maybe they just wanted me out of there?! :-)
Guess we'll have to see the rest of Loudonville some time! Love your stories about the kind people.
