Solstice Ride

So I have a crazy idea that’s been bouncing around in my head for a few weeks.

On Next years Summer Solstice, (the longest day of the year) I want to Start riding at dawn, and see how far I can get before the sun sets. Basically 14-16ish hours of riding, and just see how many miles I can go, and where I end up. Most likely leaving myself a few days to get home. It would be cool to do this as a group. I just don’t know who would be crazy enough to come with me.

Just thought I would post here so I logged it somewhere.

Edit:
So the sun rose this year at 5:49am and set at 8:34pm. That’s 14 hours and 45 minutes.
So maybe 700 miles would be possible šŸ™‚
