Episode 221 - Interview - The Iron Butt Rally with Chris Comly 

Hello boys and girls!!

Time for another interview........

 So you're thinking of doing some long distance riding events. You've looked into one or more of the many rallies that are out there, you've planned on doing your first Saddle Sore 1000 or maybe you've done it already and are seeking something a little more challenging. You've heard of events like The Void Rally, you've heard of the 50cc, you've heard of the 4 Corners ride and they are on your list. But there's something else. Something bigger, something more challenging. Something that may have your family considering you for some kind of therapy. The Iron Butt Rally. 11 days, 11,000 miles, give or take. Who in their right mind would do this you wonder? A lot of people. It's an addiction. Riders from all over the world gather in various locations every two years to take part in what could be, next to the Tour de France, one of the most grueling events in the world. My guest tonight is has ridden the Iron Butt Rally three times and is likely to ride it again and again. Check out Chris Comly's blog at Chris's Riding Adventures.
