More photos from the ride and a video of our nearly neck-deep river crossing are here: http://www.scottrcmtb.blogspot.com/2013/05/pre-ride-of-patapsco-100.html Thankfully the river water wasn't too cold!
it felt like 66 miles.
Over 7,000 ft of climbing in 33 miles!?...damn
Should be ~4,200-4,400 feet of gain. The GPS elevation correction was way off...
Great write-up on the PTap 100 course. I was laughing when I saw the video. You guys were only 200 yards from the actual crossing which was knee deep on Sunday. Ed Dixon (Ptap 100 course designer)
Well, we had a great time fording the river! We couldn't make out the low water section that well with the water moving so quickly. The crossing should be great in July (and having a marked course - so many possible trail options made for a long day of reading maps, kind of like an orienteering/adventure race).
