2 days before the Seattle to Portland (STP)

>> Thursday, July 9, 2009

Another sold out event at Cascade so there will be 10,000 riders to contend with on Saturday at 05:00, I'll definitely need a coffee before the race.

I've set a goal this year of riding the STP in a day. It's 330 km and most will ride this in two days. I am one of the insane 2500 riders that will attempt in a single day.
The good news is that the ride is very organized and there are plenty of stops for food and rehydration. I've also trained for this cause I think it will be a long day in the saddle. Hope to finish in under 12 hours.

Team Bike Run Swig consists of The Guth, Spiz, RAD, Suzie, and myself. We will meet at Suzie's at 04:30 (like I said, I'll need coffee!) and bike over to Husky Stadium for pictures and the start.

Pack List:
Bike Shoes
Socks
Shorts and BRS Jersey
iPod Shuffle
Pump
2 Gels/Bars
2 Bottles Gatorade
ID and $$
Cellphone
Sunglasses
Helmet
MultiTool
Spare tube
Tire levers
Race Packet with bib number
Sunscreen

I'm getting antsy myself. And have a similar running pack list. Mine has a few more 'parts' though, stuff I want to sub onto my rental bike (saddle/post, pedals). Also on the team are Crash and Chris from Ventoux, though they will only accompany us for the first 150mi (I have no idea what that is in km) stopping over for the eve in Kelso. See ya soon!
