Great idea, I'll be watching this, even though I probably can't take off work that long.

If my math is correct, 1000 miles in 7 days is 143 miles per day. We can easily.....VERY EASILY.....find seven days of riding where getting 143 miles is going to be a HUGE challenge. Some of the routes I have ridden in the past five years have been 70-80 miles and have taken 5-6 hours.

No worries Tha Rick.....finding challenging routes won't be the issue. Dragging 300-400 lb bikes (with gear) over the routes will certainly be the issue.
