    I really don't care what her reasons or financial situation is. She set up a personal challenge for herself and is going after it. I realize there are more important issues in the world and there are riders who could probably ride 4 times the mileage. But who cares. This is her challenge and I think it's awesome.

    Ken is wise. And right. I wish her the best. That's awesome.

    THIS.

    I don't understand what it is that allows people to be able to do this sort of thing. I'd love to spend a couple months living breathing and eating ultra-endurance athletics, but the resources just aren't there.

    Her profile

    Work for 40 years, save up and retire, and you'll probably have the time and money to do something similar. I hope I'm able to do something this fun and great when I'm her age.

    If she makes it to Maui, there's this long ride from the beach. They problem is it's 10000 ft of climbing..........

    She'd probably have to do it twice to get 100 miles that day. 20,000 ft of climbing one day. Now that's braggin' rights.
    It's a fire road.............
    I'm on a road bike..........

    They have enough in common to blast down it.
