Stupid Pony

November 8, 2019 @ 12:00 am November 9, 2019 @ 11:59 pm

Come experience the inaugural edition of the Stupid Pony, an ultra-endurance ride (it’s not a race it’s not a race it’s not a race) across Utah’s West Desert along the historic Pony Express route from Lehi, UT to West Wendover, NV. We’ll be riding 210 miles in a sitting on rough dirt and gravel roads across some of the most remote, desolate, and beautiful landscape in the continental United States. Expect wild horses, pronghorn antelope, sagebrush, shepherds who grow their own marijuana, and palpable aridity.

At this time we have no fees, no sponsors, no SAG, no gift basket, no way to get home except on the Wendover Fun Bus. Just you, your bike, all the water you can carry, and a long way to go with your thoughts.

Ride, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Gravel II

June 15, 2019 @ 9:00 am 3:00 pm

Do you live near Southwest Ohio – Eastern Indiana? Do you enjoy riding gravel but don’t want to travel so far to find gravel roads? Are you looking for a mostly flat gravel ride to try the sport out? It might be a couple of months off but do you need to start thinking about the upcoming Cyclocross season? Are you looking for a fun ride with fun people?

“Ride, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Gravel” is a ride for you. The ride will start on June 15, 2019 at 9:00am from Liberty, Indiana, Union County High School. The main route will be 61 miles with an opportunity to shorten the ride to 55 miles. There are no stores along the route, my wife Barb will drive my car to the halfway point. It will have water, Gatorade and snacks. If you would like to place something in my car you are welcome to do so. You have to be self-supported to do this ride and deal with all mechanical issues. I will have a sign in sheet at the start so I know how many riders we have. I will also ask that you sign in when you finish so I know everyone has returned safely.

Location: Union County High School, Liberty, Indiana
Start: 9:00am
Distance: 61 miles
Elevation: 1,400 feet
Rest Stop: One – My wife Barb will drive my car to the halfway point. It will have water, Gatorade and snacks. If you would like to place something in my car you are welcome to do so.
