White Rim in a Day

Looks like I'm off to ride the White Rim in a Day tomorrow morning. Shawn from Dolores called last minute to invite me on this ride. It is 100 miles of mostly rocky, sandy 4x4 road. They also call it the Island in the Sky. The Green River and Colorado River meet at one juncture around this mesa. Not too much climbing; around 7k or so in the hundy miles. I will be on my 29er Airborne Ti single speed mountain bike rocking the loop. It is self supported; which means carry all the water and food provisions you may need to get through the ride. Most people ride this in 3-5 days with support. That would be called having fun my friends. That sounds too easy, one day is all we need.
