This year's 1200K adventure starts on Thursday, August 8th at 4:00am in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. As I have done for my past 1200K's, I will be posting as much information as I can during the ride for anyone interested in riding vicariously through the mountains of northeastern Pennslyvania. I will try to post as often as I can but it will depend a lot on how my energy levels hold up.
Endless Mountains is 770 miles long with approximately 60,000 feet of climbing. To be an official finisher, I need to finish by 1:00am on Monday, August 12th.
I will be using my SPOT locator during the ride. To check out where I'm at, follow this link: http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0QrJWA4uXSyjyeTEbQreZGE9oy7Njq7dT
There is lots of information about Endless Mountains at the official ride website.(http://users.rcn.com/trosenbauer/PA1200K.html).

I've trained pretty hard to get ready for Endless Mountains. By the end of the week, we should know if its enough.
