The first 100 is fairly flat with maybe two decent hills, but the second half is a whole lot of rolling country roads. Which are harder then you'd think because by then, most people are starting to feel it. And if you go too hard the first half, it's worse..

They do a thing here called the RATPOD (Ride Around The Pioneers in One Day), where you ride...around the Pioneer mtns. At 126 miles, not near as far as that, but it's pretty high and climbs a lot. Starts and ends at 5100' in Dillon MT, over a pass at 6800, another at 8000, and it's often windy out in the valley. It's a spectacular place to see though.

Don't think I could do all that currently! It raises money for Camp Mak-A-Dream for kids with cancer.

Yes and no.

Here's the elevation:



Speed superimposed over elevation:



So you can see the effects of time/distance vs elevation and speed.

Mind you, we had packed like we were doing two day, so I had both saddle bags with camping hammock and lightweight blanket, and toiletries, and change of underwear. So probably a little heavier than we needed to be.

Our bikes at one of the rest stops (not far from E30 picnic site):
