My friend Elgin and I decided that it was time to finally do the SaddleSore 1600, a 1600+km ride under 24hrs (actually 1610+km), certified by the Iron Butt Association. The rules are simple: you do the ride, you document it during the ride with gas receipts, you get a witness for the start and the end of the ride and send all information in after your ride. Your input is checked meticuluously against the rules and if they are satisfied you will get your certificate.
