Tour De Six

Ok, tomorrow is the big day. 100 miles if I can make it. I've prepared as well as I can in the month I had and I think I have a fair chance to make the cut off time. We went and scoped out the big climb today. Yeah, I'll be walking a bit of that bad boy. Still, the rest of the course looks doable. Got signed in and have my kit all laid out. Bike is as good as I can make her. Tunes are ready. Got plenty of suitable food. Lu is going to parallel the course and meet me at various places with more food, drinks and encouragement. She'll also be bringing the camera so I'll post some action shots in the next day or so.

Unless I fail spectacularly. Then I'll quietly take down the blog, don sackcloth and ashes and go live in a monastary in the hills.

Who dares, wins.

Now go. And do it. Or do not. There is no "try".

Let us know how it went.

Are you following your regimen of transfusions, injections, clear & cream, HGH, steroids, vitamins, and pharmaceuticals to mask them? Ohh, no post ride testing required? Never mind...
