The overall idea of the ride is to ride from furthest corner to
furthest corner of the contiguous USA--Key West FL to Blaine WA or
reversed. This ride is just over 3,600 miles following the most direct
route possible. Although not required, it is within the spirit of this
ride that the rider set foot in the Atlantic Ocean at Key West and in
the Pacific Ocean at Blaine.
SaddleSore 1000, is described on the Iron Butt
Association website. The rules for that ride are similar, and valuable
relevant information is provided there.

Riding through the Keys presents the greatest time challenge to the
rider. Heavily patrolled with just about zero tolerance for any amount
over the posted limit of 30-50mph means even if you time this section
to miss heavy traffic, you will NOT be making any time here! You must obtain a Dated Business
Receipt (DBR) at the start
and end of your ride, as
well as along your route every 350 miles or less.
Your official ride duration is determined from the starting
and ending DBRs. PLEASE check these documents and make sure
the time and date are correct!
recommended but not
you cannot get a DBR, you must take a
picture, including your motorcycle, to PROVE you were in each
location. Remember it is YOUR responsibility to prove your
starting point, route, and ending point. Spotwalla goes a long
way towards this proof.
There is no additional merchandise for this ride.
