It’s that time of year again — in a little under 3 weeks, riders will be saddling in the wee hours of the morning, and riding late into the night and the wee hours of the following morning. Yep, Tevis is just around the corner, August 17th this year, moved to a later-than-usual date after concerns of heavy snowpack in the Sierras and trail accessibility.
I’ll once again be donning my crew hat — this year marks the 10th time I’ll have crewed Tevis, so I guess that makes me Decade Crew. This time, I’ll be crewing for my friend Cathy, whose horses I rode at the Tevis Ed Ride in 2017.
My previous crewing and riding Tevis stories that I’ve blogged about:
2014 Crewing Part A / Part B
Main Tevis site
This will also be where to go for the live webcast link on Ride Day.
Someone on YouTube put together a very comprehensive playlist of Tevis-related media.
“Inside Information” Tevis video
Tevis Ride stories blog (and if you Google “Tevis ride story” you’ll also get a ton of stuff showing up)
Endurance.net almost always has annual Tevis coverage on their Events page
For everyone riding, good luck and I’ll see you up there. For those following along from home…enjoy the air conditioning and a cold drink for me.
