"Most RG to do 1k in 24hrs" & military charity

Friends - let's make riding history by having the most Road Glides to ride 1k miles in less than 24 hrs. As most of you know, this would be an Iron Butt Association SaddleSore. *** And let's raise money during it to donate to a worthy military charity.

I've organized several large IBA rides - including the 2009 IBA World Record for the largest group 1K and largest group 1k inside VA - that was 385 finishers.

So let me know if you are interested and I'll start the organizing with the IBA.

The route will start near Washington DC.

I'm looking at May at May at the earliest.

Sounds good to me. I did 650 hung over in a half day coming home to NC from Biketoberfest, so I think I can handle the 1K, and can't think of a better way to do it than with a school of sharks!
Thanks for the creative thinking Doofus!

Thnx pal - I'll keep you in the loop - we can pull this off -- my hope is that others who have wanted to do a IBA 1k in 24 will take advantage of this easy opportunity. DOOF

could you do a bunch of different starting points across the us? everyone starts at the same time (adjusted for timezone) and goes their own route?

i probably wouldn't be able to do it (the actual ride, i've done ss1000 before), so i'm just thinking outloud here.....

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

No. That's one aspect of the IBA rules we can't fudge - start & finish have to be together - but - as with the 400 riders I had in 09, the riders DO NOT have to ride down the road together because that is unsafe - joint starting is critical. Thanks for chiming in !!! DOOF

I'm still working out options for either:
- ONE WAY 1k or
- OUT & BACK for 1k
There are a few easily approved IBA routes - for group rides, the fewer turns the better - easier to certify.

Many people told me I should have certified my ride down from Alaska with the IBA. I did 1,012 hard miles down from Fairbanks, AK to Deese Lake, BC. I found the IBA rules too cumbersome to mess with. Gas receipts, affidavits, notes from mommy, whatever. My Spot Connect clearly plotted my route realtime. I have my memories,the video, and countless images. Don't need a patch.

Excellent. Being happy with your rides is the most important thing. This ride will have limited paperwork because of the arrangements I have with IBA. DOOF
