Bound for Nationals

With Snap waiting in the wings for his turn and Rinnah and Lillie learning to ride better and anticipating their first AERC rides, do I really need more?

Apparently, I do. I have entered the 100 mile AERC National Championship ride. This year, the NC will be held at Biltmore Estates in Ashville, NC.

Due to my religious belief that Saturday is the Sabbath of the Lord God and we are to rest on the Sabbath (Exodus 20:8-10), I do not have many 100 mile rides that I can actually attempt as most 100 mile rides are held on Sabbath. The National Championship 100 Mile ride is held on a Thursday. This year, that's September 20.

With a full team of support behind us, Tanna and I completed a 100 mile ride in 2008. Those AERC National Championships were held at Clark State Forest in Henryville, IN.

I have sent in my entry and my full payment. Ride day is 5 weeks away. Eeeek!

Found your blog recently and enjoy it. :) Have fun getting ready for the NC ride! I also choose not to show/ride competitively on Saturdays so I think it's amazing you have the chance to do this ride! Will be watching for updates!

I haven't written up my blog post for my 100 yet! Bad of me! I did go and we did complete. :-)
