Just a quick post. I completed the AdventureCORPS Fall Death Valley Ultra Century (144 miles) with a few extra miles for good measure. My ride was 157 miles. The only section I cut out was the flat section from the Nevada state line to Hwy 95 turn around. I rode all the climbs which was important to me.
I had a different type of ride. I’ll explain more on my race report. I took two hours off the bike and enjoyed the scenery. I talked to riders and took pictures. At the finish line I hung out for hours talking to riders and volunteers. I was surprised to hear from so many riders that they had been reading my blog. I have renewed motivation to post more often to my blog since someone out there is actually reading it 😉 Please post a comment, suggestion or question- this blog is interactive and I will respond and if necessary write a post on a requested topic.

Thank you for reading my blog. I did have a good time and I absolutely love riding in Death Valley!
I was so glad you joined our group, it was great to ride with you. I’m glad we had a chance to talk afterwards too. Keep up your awesome blog, I hope to ride with you again down the road!
Thank you for reading my blog and introducing yourself to me at the event. It is very cool to meet people that read my blog. I sometimes wonder if anyone IS reading my blog.
I was happy to join your paceline. You were the only one who I felt comfortable and safe following. We will hook up again I’m sure. I hope to be at the Spring Death Valley Double Century if work permits.

I’m the guy who was at the top of Hell’s Gate, at 10:30 pm, no longer able to balance on his bike. I too read your blog from time to time for inspiration and motivation. I’ve posted a picture of us on my blog post for the event, which can be found at
Perhaps you can copy the picture from there, or I can email one to you.
