I received an email last night via Mapmyride.com from a gentleman with a really cool mission ! Check this out:

"This was a good route. I would like to send "rola643" an email thanking him for making it public. I am currently on a mission to Ride At Least 100 Miles (on my bike...as in bicycle) in all 50 states. I have completed 7 and have ridden some in another 4. I use MapMyRide to make my routes as I go and to find one such as this ride already prepared was a real treat! It doesn't happen often."

MapMyRide.com | View Dutton And Warner Hall in Gloucester, Virginia

Don't know if he is a member here or not but what a totally cool mission, would love to be able to do it !

Well, it seemed no one had a real interest in this so I have let it fall to the side but this guy is just about to accomplish something pretty huge to me. I'd kill to have the chance to ride a 100 miles in every state!

They just did a ride in Hawaii, how awesome is that?

rola643, thanks for posting, have bookmarked his site. To think at 73 & on a mission most of us just day dream about.

For what it's worth, I spent quite a bit of time speaking with Robin at MapMyRide, and the guys that started the company are basically equal parts computer geeks/cycling fanatics. Their apps are brilliant on many levels.

Holy crap that's almost 5,000 miles! LOL!

MapMyRide does rock. They have it so slick now I plug in my Garmin and within 4 minutes I've uploaded my ride and posted it to Facebook and I'm done.

Ditto on the kool comments. Looking forward to my 1st century in my own state much less what this guy is doing.
