    Damn, I really wanted to check out both. Was thinking attempting WW50 on SS, but, also really want to do Hellacious. Choices, Choices...

    My Hellacious ride is the weekend after WW50.

    B4b Hell Ride is same day as WW50.

    I'm crushed. Not sure I can get through the ride without the spinach pastry.

    (PLEASE NOTE: Cinnamon's Bakery has recently closed it's doors. There is a new business taking it's place but who knows what it will be, if it will be open, or if there will be any facilities or services to offer. Expect a parking lot. That you can count on.)

    Oops. Thought that was the Hightower.

    The corndogged Part definitely still applies.

    Once they fill up the 50 spots. But they have yet to do that....at least not the last 4 years.

    Our friend Amy has done it the last couple years, and we're trying to talk her into it again. :thumbsup:

    Like J says above, the registration is capped at 50, but I don't think we've seen more than 20 or so. It's an unofficial event... Raw, unsupported, unmarked, etc... :inlove:

    That's cool... I'm sure he wants a do-over after the close finish last time around.

    He'll be slightly (a couple hours...) ahead of us. Maybe more. I'll be pushing my bike by mile 2. :oops:

    He sounded pumped for this year’s race. He’s like a competitive Jzilla. That faqer looped the PCE but rather than turn around at HWY 74, he climbed up the Santa Rosa Mountains to Toro Peak before going back down for the Palm Canyon.
