    2011 GVMC Routledge Run

    I just ran across this video, It was a day where one split second bad decision, lasted for 12 hours. This ride has been the topic of many conversations since, sometimes referred to as the Donner Party

      Wasn't it more like 8 hours of continuous bad decision? The best ride ever to miss...

        It was 12 hours total with 8 hours of pulling bikes through soft snow. It still seems like it was yesterday

              At what point did the cannibalism thoughts start to enter Peter's mind?

                  I wish I had video of the river crossing on the TCT trail after all that pushing through the snow. I followed Tom through the river and everyone else went around. I am sure the water washed over the top of my seat! It was deep and fast moving. I remember looking down at the bike and seeing how deep the water was, thinking that if I crash we'll never retrieve the bike, and then hitting the gas and making it back out of there. Haha. I think that is still the deepest water crossing I have ever done.
