I double dog dare ya!!!

So, like Bob has mentioned on his blog, he and I will be taking a little jaunt out to Kearney from Omaha.  And then ride back again the next day.  This will be happening on the 8th and 9th of November with details to follow once times get finalized and such.

I'm seriously freaking out, man!!!  I have done a 130 mile ride and a 144 mile ride before, but both were at the height of my biking fitness.  Let's just say I'm not quite at that level anymore.

To all those who have the means, I'm double dog daring you to join us for a weekend of more than a couple turns of the bicycle cranks.  The destination in Kearney is free, but can hold, at most, 4 of us.  So claim one of the 2 remaining spots while there's one available!

I know most of the comments/replys are going to be "Are you $%^# insane?!?!?" But seriously, join us if you can.  It'll be a good time.  I promise.  There will be no pain, just pure joy.  Seriously.  I promise.

Come on, you know you want to.

What if I triple dog dare ya!?

bryan said...

No. I actually don't want to, dares (triple, double or single, dog or no dog) notwithstanding.

I didn't know you took drugs.

The trips down might only take about 12 hours (with breaks), if you haul ass. The trip back could be a bit of a bitch, though.

It should be nice and warm for you in November, too.

Nay, I say.

Panzies! ;-)

"if you haul ass", some how I think that we be counter-productive for the trip back. I figure 15mph average would be plenty which is just about 12 hours of riding. With at least 2 stops to pig out along the way. That means we will have to ride a bit in the dark at either the start or finish of each day.

Now where did I put that doughnut cushion.

You forgot to mention that you and I will earn a total of $14.40 for our respective charities in the process.... and probably spend $40 on food in the process.

So who is going to put on their big boy pants and join us.

I'd join you, but you'd probably have to drop me somewhere around 144th St.

Have fun earning your new socks!

Munson, this actually sounds pretty good. I'd love to do it if I were still around. I might be coming around town from the 25th-30th (5 days), so if you wanna do a part 2, just let me know. Feelin' crazy, punk? Are ya?
