iron butt ride

Post by 08gl1800 »

In a few months I will be making a route 66 ride from Florida to Chicago, to the West coast and back to Florida. After my last trip from Florida to Minnesota, full circle around Lake Superior and back to Florida I had several people ask me if any of it was an iron butt ride. When first asked I did not know what it meant. Many people told me that it meant 1000 miles in 24 hours, if that's true how do you authenticate the ride? According to some calculations that I've made, my route 66 run will contain three 24 hour 1,000 mile tips.
