Hey--i'm new to this scene, but i'm super excited about trying to complete a Cup in 2012. So excited, as a matter of fact, that i just completed 103.5 miles (from Manly, IA, to Waukon, IA) today. I wanted to get out of the starting gate right away and get this party started! It worked out nicely that i could celebrate a belated Christmas w/ my parents yesterday, then Lee dropped me off partway back home, and I rode the rest of the way to complete my century. I did find out that sometimes Gmaps is a bit off on which roads go through, but any ride that includes a creaky suspension bridge is automatically legit. (I hope that i attached the confirmatory pictures correctly). Thanks for hosting this challenge, and i'll hopefully be emailing again in February to let you know about ride #2.
