What a great day for am endurance ride!
The WT50 - which started out as a dozen folks not wanting to miss out on the first 50 miler of the year, after San Felasco filled up in less than a week, turned into 38 riders converging on the Trout Creek parking lot ready to tackle all of the trails Wilderness Trails has to offer, (otherwise known as Morris Bridge).
There were no SAG stops to offer, but it would have sure been nice to have two. There was no one serving lunch, but that would have been welcome as well.
Instead everyone was on their own to be in riding shape and nutrition up for the ride, and have their own lunch stop after the first 25 mile lap. The second 25 mile lap went in the opposite direction of the first as both tackled the Hog infested Morris Bridge side, and the tamer Flatwoods side.
Everyone had a great time and all seemed eager to add this to next years endurance rides as a 4th fifty. Hmmm, we’ll see.
At the end there were 25 out of the 38 riders who did the whole 50 miles to add to the “TRE FITTY” for the triple crown.
Those that finished for bragging rights are:
Morisson (61,45 miles; 6 hrs. 29 minutes on rigid frame 29er)
