10/15/14:The 2014 GTDRI will forever be remembered for the crash at what became the end of the ride at Mile 95. We did have a nice group of seven including myself. Here are the reports from the ride entitled "It Could Have Been Worse" Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 , and Part 5.
7/23/14- The 2014 version of the GTDRI  was dedicated to Phyllis "Phyl" Michel who died at the age of 83. She was a faithful rider for years who piled on up to 10,000 miles every year well into her 70's and rode about 5G last year alone. Her memorial service was the day of the 2014 ride.

 7/21/14: The cues are now posted HERE for this weekend's ride.  

7/15/12:The GTDRI was a big success! 9 intrepid riders showed up from as far away as Kansas and Nebraska for this edition of the ride. It was hot, humid, we got rained on, and all in all had a great time. 6 finished the complete 120 mile course.   A BIG THANK YOU to all you who made the ride awesome!  Links  to the story on this one- Part 1Part 2, Part 3, Part  3.1 , Part  4

08/01/11:  Another GTDRI In The Books! We got in right at 100 miles with temps in the upper 90's and brutal heat in the afternoon. Thanks to all in attendance. It was awesome to see all of you.  Report #1 Here. Report #2 Here

 7/19/10: The GTDRI 2010 Report can be found here: Into The Heat   It was a really hot day with temperatures reaching into the mid-90's with high humidity and little wind. A recipe for a truncated version of the GTDRI. That has only happened once before due to a thunderstorm back in 2007. Thanks to Jeremy Fry and Jason Boucher for coming along on this burnt, crispy critter of a ride! 

Hit me with an e-mail if you want to let me know you'll be there or if you have any questions. I'll post up any last minute changes later if there are any. Stay tuned!
