    I rode the 50-mile route in this year's Granite State Quest today, a ride to conquer childhood cancer. That's my longest ride of the season so far, and a good step on the road to Philly!

    The first, 30-mile loop was excellent. The second, 20-mile loop was challenging. The third, 50-mile loop was painful! But I finished it.

    I'll have kids like Diamond from S P's post in mind as I pedal tomorrow. I'm going to attempt the full century, though it's more than twice my longest ride so far this year. Wish me luck!

    Granite State Quest 2011

    I enjoyed digging up this old thread about the first time I rode in the Granite State Quest five years ago, a year after my L-RPLND adventure.

    I'm riding it again this year, next weekend!

    "Giving Is Great!"

    I'm about to head out on the road for a training ride, but before I go, I wanted to share the artwork from the jersey and T-shirt (pictured) from last weekend's Granite State Quest event. It was provided by an eight-year-old in treatment at Mass General.

    I finished the 50-mile loop at 10:30 a.m. That's my longest bike ride since October 2004, and good training for this September!

    I'll be up and out bright and early for the Granite State Quest tomorrow. We arrive about 6:30 a.m., and the ride starts at 7:30. The weather forecast looks perfect!

    Yep it is big they had a stop about 5 miles from where I live 2 years ago this year they will be close to Iowa city which is only 20 miles from me. I might have to run down and take some pics but as you can imagine it is packed with riders and support buses, venders and TV station Sat trucks from all over the Midwest.
    I know they usually get some big names to do the ride some of them have a YELLOW jersey or two in the closet .

    Holy smokes, what an event. I can't even imagine that many riders on such a big ride. I think the number was 8500 weekly riders and 1500 daily. I'm going to put this one in my must do someday book.

    Have fun on your ride Scott when you are done you can come to the Great State of Iowa for the RAGBRAI http://www.ragbrai.org/ I think there are 3 people on my floor at work that will be doing it again this year. You want to talk about A LOT of bikes in one place Think swarm of riders and many old school buses converted into party pads one of those things you have to see to believe.
    Good Luck and have fun

    I managed to get in a 14-mile ride this afternoon. The weather was good when I started out. A very light, occasional rain felt great for the last couple miles. About a half mile from home it started to pour! Honestly, I didn't care -- it just felt great to be out. I'm really looking forward to Saturday's group ride.
