Iron Crotch 2005

The Iron Crotch bicycle ride... what can you say about it. Its the hip alternative to that other Iron something-or-other ride that takes place on the same day. The Iron Crotch has about 200 riders and takes place in Western Wisconsin. The other ride has 4500-ish riders and takes place in Lakeville. There are at least 9 other reasons that I prefer the 'crotch over the other ride, but to list them here would be plagiarism.

Here are the important Technical Details of today's ride:

- Avg Heart Rate: Left the damn thing home, somewhere
- Max Heart Rate: See above
- miles: about 57, I think
- Beers: 2
- Breakfast during ride: Eggs scrambled, toast, hashbrowns, New Glarus Ale
- Head wind (from the North) the first 30 miles
- Tail wind almost all the way back

Hats off to County Cycles for another great ride. Commendable job by the Cascade Bar in Osceola for being the unofficial rest stop at the half way point. (memo to self, call the Cascade Bar next year a day or two ahead at 715-294-9933 so they can stock up on food, their request). Also thanks to Nancy & George for hosting a meal after the ride.

Example

"Oh yeah" what else can I add......
I've done the crotch before and it's a really great ride. Beats the
hell out of the Ironman that is put
on by that fredly club in the city.
Perhaps next year I'll drop in on
this one. It's a GREAT route.
