Up early, typical of me not to sleep soundly. If I get 5-6 hours that seems to work, waiting for the sun to come up and get on the bike. Riding the CX Trek XO2, she packed and ready. I almost put the Nokian Stud tires on last night, it was freezing rain. It's 33 out now, and I'm thinking (hoping) no ice out there.

Today will make #99. Some of the things I am going to do after I bag 100 Dirt Metric Centuries

1. Put a piece of tape over my odometer.

2. Do some hill climbing rides.

3. Ride the FattieGirl (see picture below)

4. Ride more technical trails.

5. Get the road bike out for some faster riding. (No snow conditions mandatory)

6. Do some home remodeling.

7. Cancel #6.

Here's the 'Snowmachine', a.k.a. 'FattieGirl' all she needs is some rubber.

So gotta go, I see the sun peaking at Iowa out east of here.

I'll leave you with what Dave Nice said on his list of "thank yous"

"And finally for the lovely machine that is the bicycle, my escape, recreation, drug, therapist"

I think after 6200 miles of gravel you should think about the 100 bottles of beer song. All I'm saying....

But how will you best that next year? 200?, Great Divide?

Love #7 that is great! I hear you on that - my bathtub has been OOC since I was gone on my bike tour in June and plan on keeping it that way for a while ;)
