SaddleSore 2000 Application

© 2000, Iron Butt Association, Chicago, Illinois

SaddleSore 2000 Application may be reproduced and distributed as needed for personal or club use.


The SaddleSore 2000 is simply 2,000 or more miles in 48 hours. For the history of the SaddleSore series of rides, you should carefully read and become familiar with the SaddleSore 1000 rules and history of the ride.

The SaddleSore 2000 Rules

The rules are identical to those of a SaddleSore 1000, except the mileage requirement is at least 2,000 miles in 48 hours.

You may elect to ride more miles in either time period, so long as the total of the 48 hours is greater then 2,000 miles. So if your personal rythme means you would rather ride 1,050 miles on day one and then take an extended motel stop, well into the second bank of hours, you would have to complete the remaining 950 miles by the end of 48 hours.

You have several options to bail out on this ride. The documents needed are the same as a SaddleSore 1000 and Bun Burner 1500, so if you cannot complete the 2000, you may still have made the 1,500 in 36 hours or 1,000 in 24 hour rides.

If you have any questions about this ride, you may write to the Iron Butt Butt Association, P.O. Box 9450, Naperville, IL 60567-9450 or send e-mail to kneebone@ironbutt.com.

If you used a GPS (Global Positioning Device) and noted your mileage, please enter that reading here: _______________________ Cities/towns your route included: NOTE: The following is used only for the people that do the certificates to make them more understandable. Try and answer the following questions to make your certificate reflect your ride. Sample wording of a SaddleSore Certificate (please keep this format in mind as you answer the following questions): This is to Certify that on May 15, 2001, John J. Rider rode a BMW K1200LT a total of 2,130 grueling miles in less than forty-eight hours starting in Chicago, Illinois continuing onto Omaha, Nebraska and Salt Lake City, Utah before ending in San Francisco, California while participating in the SaddleSore 2000. Name of start city: ______________________________________ Note: for the **certificate** you may substitute a large city nearby if you want); for example, if you start in DesPlaines, Illinois, (a suburb of Chicago), it is acceptable to put Chicago as the starting point for the certificate. Name of end city ________________________ Note: Same rules apply to these cities as noted above. Your certificate will highlight up to three cities as midpoints. Please list UP TO THREE cities that helps highlight your route for your certificate: ___________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________ Note: Some of these cities may be listed on your certificate and the same rules apply to these cities as noted above. For example, we might want to say, Jerry Jones started in New York, New York continued onto Daytona Beach, Florida before ending her ride in Little Rock, Arkansas. Please note that this is only an attempt to make your certificate more readable - do not stop 60 miles short of Los Angeles and expect us to create a certificate that reads Los Angeles. This is to make the certificates more readable so that when you display them, your riding friends will better grasp the immense ride you took. Send the package, along with a check for US funds to (PLEASE DO NOT USE A STAPLE ON YOUR CHECK) to: Iron Butt Association P.O. Box 9450 Naperville, IL 60567-9450 DO NOT send CASH!
