Partway through the Jingle Bell Trot ride, Liberty and I racked up enough miles to finish the Virtual Tevis this year.
May it be a precursor of the real thing to come one day.
I didn’t do a very good job reporting miles here on the blog as we went along, or detailing out the rest of the individual milestones and checkpoints. On the real thing, the only section I haven’t seen is the section out of Robinson Flat, through the first canyon and to Devil’s Thumb (just before Deadwood). From Devil’s Thumb to the finish, I’ve seen the entire rest of the way, and the first 36 miles, so there’s a chunk of 16 or so miles that I’m missing.
This was such a good project for Liberty and myself to get started with, and lay a good conditioning foundation. I’m so glad the WSTF came up with this alternative for this year, and from what I’ve seen online, it sounds like it was really well-received and popular.
