Today's work after missing a couple rides. I still had trail work to do in the lowest elevation and the swamp but it's smoothing out.

Recovery time 62h, is that hours?

Here's a handy accessory, a wrist mirror for watching for Pumas tracking you and lay out lines for escaping them.

I was reading about the Hellbender 100 in the Carolina Mountains.
It's a 100 mile foot race but seems to be mostly off road on paths a mountain bike could handle.
I think it said the first 5 miles was on pavement. It would be a challenge, lots of fresh air.

But Leadville is so far away you'd be tired before you got there.

Well you could repeatedly ride the Skyline Access Trail to the Ben Lomand trail like Ben Hildred did for 19 straight hours completing one Mt Everest. Lil G and I hiked it as part of our Ben Lomand day.

He also did 55,000 meters in 30 days before work.

Perhaps he can find a kindly shrink to cure him.

I used to work with an Engineer at Westinghouse who was around 60 and legally blind. He had a two car garage
full of bikes including 2 of these. he'd actually ride the damn things around the block on the street. Risky business.
