Trans Iowa Clinc

Looking forward to going here again soon
I should apologize to the regular readers here. This Trans Iowa stuff is pretty intense of late, but that won't last much longer now. Registration is over, the roster is set, recon is done, and now there will only be the Trans Iowa Clinic which happens December 7th, down in Des Moines.

That clinic is going to be a good time too. I have some good folks behind this, and we'll do our best to answer all the questions and put on a good showing. Essentially the night will look like this:

  • 5:30pm: The clinic happens at Tacopocalypse , 621 Des Moines Street, in downtown Des Moines on December 7th.. Come early and savor the good food on sale at the Tacopocalypse and then direct your attention to the side door where you will find a room set up for the clinic. We'll have chairs set up, a big projector screen, and a few bicycles all set up for a Trans Iowa type assault for your perusal. 
  • 6:00pm: I'll be saying a few words before we cue up the documentary from Trans Iowa V7 called "300 Miles of Gravel" which you can purchase for yourself here. That documentary should go about a half an hour. You can continue eating during this time if you'd like.
  • 6:30pm: I'll introduce the experts on hand, and they will make a presentation and accept questions along the way. They will cover things like Strategy, Training, Gear and Nutrition.
  • 8:00-ish: (Could run a bit longer depending on how things are flowing. ) The clinic will come to a close and we will hand out a bag of some Hammer Nutrition goodies for those who stay for the end of the clinic.
If you want to come because you are curious, but not in Trans Iowa, please feel free to. There is no cost, but I only ask that you RSVP at g.ted.productions@gmail.com to secure a spot. We are just over half way full for available spots, so don't hesitate!

Thanks all! I'll be getting the blog back on track here soon!

Best restaurant name ever.

So, overall recon is done now, and the course is 336.66 miles…I assume that the time limit remains at its customary 34 hours, correct?

Mauricio Babilonia: Yes-that is correct.
