Last Summer I saw on MBL a Post about a Race from MSP to CHI, and thought it sounded like fun. Eventually I got the idea to continue on to New York City and tossed the idea out there for all to shoot down. There were no comments at all as I recall.
So how about it? A Race from MSP to NYC? Leave on or about Sep 1st.
Either structured or 'freestyle':
Structured: Through La Crosse/Madison/Milwaukee/Chicago/Gary/Toledo/Cleveland/across Pennsylvania on Rouye V (http://www.dot.state.pa.us/bike/web/tour_routes.htm
)/into Jersey to Newark/and across the Hudson to Manhattan.
Freestyle: However you can get there.
Bonus Points for Camping as opposed to Hotel/Motel stays.
Bonus-points for over 100-mile days/over 150-mile days/over 200-mile days.
Check-in nightly with cell-phone camera-shots of Town/City population-signs.
Scavenger-Hunt (TBD) Bonus Points.
And doing the Transportation Alternatives 5-Borough Century in NYC as the icing on the cake (Sunday Sep 18th).
