Yes, we went for a d1 pre ride on Saturday. She is a skilled rider, but fitness is still in question
Yeah, I was impressed with her riding in her video!
Here is a great video that was taken last weekend on a day 1 pre-ride. This will give anyone that's thinking about doing this an idea of what they are getting into. Be sure to watch the entire video as the trail gets more and more challenging as the video goes on. Keep in mind that there is around 230 miles of this just in the first day!
We did it, @KentuckyWR and I finished the Tour of Idaho T1 last week. 2050 miles of some hard core trails in 10 days. We are finisher numbers 77 & 78.
The start 4:00am on 8/20...
The finish 3:44pm on 8/30...
Congrats!!!! Did you take video like you did last year? If so, I can't wait to watch it all again :)
Sure did... https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLp6-QbRLhwFt0hYLsIbUOeZucnunqeejD
Great ride boys.
Here is @KentuckyWR day by day blog of our Tour of Idaho T1 run...
We got to tell the story tonight of our 2018 attempt and 2020 success of the T1.
Looks like some fun but tough riding. I don't get the 230 miles though. A lot of that looked like 10 mph which would be 23 hours of riding plus time dealing with falls and missed turns. And the faster stuff didn't look like 20 mph??
There are some gravel and dirt road transfer sections that bring up your average speed. Our shortest day was 12 hours and the longest was 17 hours, the longest mileage in 1 day was 280.
Very enjoyable interview! Thanks for taking the extra time/effort to share your experiences. Most appreciated!
@Jeff@TheQuadShop - hey Jeff were you going to speak at the Nick's DS event in Cumberland 2 weeks ago????
We came up from FL but did not camp and missed the presentation. But enjoyed the event a lot.
We spent a month in Idaho this past summer and although did not run The Tour I did cover some of the tracks. I was lookin forward to some Idaho talk - we plan on going back again this summer but instead of 6-7 different riding locations we wanted to stick to the 3-4 we enjoyed the most. I was most curious about the logistics?
We were but by 5:30 when the time that he had planned to have us speak came up, there were only about 5 other people that had made it out of the woods so far.
As far as ID, are you asking about the logistics on how we got the bikes back to southern ID?
Yea that was one question, and good job that's a hell of a ride and defiantly not my jam. I prefer to be back at the van each night. Sorry we missed ya up in TN that would have been cool to chat, I really enjoyed Idaho a lot. Reminded me of a combo of Alaska and Colorado.
We rented a 10' U-Haul. You can certainly ride TOI without going for a finisher number if you want to have someone drive your van from stop to stop, it's called riding the T2.
