2011 Hell’s Gate 100 is in the History Books

Have You Ever Been to Death Valley?
I’ve been to death Valley several times, and did a solo crossing on my Harley in 2003. But I’ve always wanted to ride my bicycle through this wonderful area.   Riding through Death Valley is a remarkable experience. Desolate but starkly beautiful landscape and hardly a person, vehicle, or building to be seen.

If you read this blog, you know that the Hell’s Gate 100 is on my bicycling bucket list – see the right sidebar.

193 Riders Rode My Bucket List – and I Wasn’t There!
i just received my Adventure Corps email with the photos from this year’s event and it’s going on my 2012 riding calendar. The ride has a nice 8,600 feet of vertical and completing the ride makes one eligible for a Prostate Cancer Awareness Project climbing jersey. That’s on my list, also.

I believe this is Scotty’s Castle. Just follow this link to see the full slide show.

Another day in paradise. Warm regards, Robert

PS:  Make certain you have your bicycle specs recorded in your MyBikeInfo application incase that expensive machine gets waylaid.
