C.O.G.100 is being worked out, but in the meantime, here is what you need to know if you want in on this nutty idea of mine. First, be prepared for on-line registration via Tikly on January 2nd, 2019. I'll have a specific time for that to go live, but for now, that's the date.
Secondly, a reminder that our field limit is 75 people. Now, in my mind, finding seventy five nut jobs that want to ride 100 miles of gravel in late March is going to be a tough thing to do. On the other hand, I'm hearing from several folks that are building special bikes and getting their first gravel road single speed bikes together just for this event.
I find that humbling and surprising, to be quite honest. My brother, MG, tells me he thinks this will sell out. Hmm..... Take that info with a grain of salt, y'all, but I have heard from several out of state folks that they are coming. So......
Course recon should happen this month. I rough drafted a course just the other day which came out at 106 miles. Gonna have to edit a bit to get it down a few miles, but that shouldn't be too tough. As of right now, this will be 100 miles with zero towns to pass through. I may modify that to allow for some folks that need it to get into a convenience store. I'm still thinking that bit through. If you feel strongly about that, one way or the other, hit me with a comment.
While I am not going out of my way to have any big sponsors or schwag, I am cooking up a little sumthin-sumthin for every rider to take away with them. Stay tuned........ That said, if anyone reading this wants to sponsor the C.O.G.100, let me know. I am all ears.....
