Re: [RC] Incentives for 100s - Elizabeth Walker

I think this is a good idea.  I don't see a lot of 65 or 75 mile rides offered.  Mostly, the distances are 25, 50 and 100.  One variation would be for RMs to offer a lower-milage ride in conjunction with a 100 - say a 75/100?  People that are working up to the 100 mile distance can enter the shorter ride, but are at the ridecamp with experienced 100 mile riders, so could get pointers and advice.  (And there are no rule changes)

I forgot to add, personally I think an incentive for me to try a 100 is to have something in between 50 and 100. What I mean is officially sanctioned 75 or 80 mile rides. It is a fairly big jump for the person thinking of doing a 100 to go from 50 to 100. But being able to sign up for a 75 mile ride gives a person an idea that they can do more without tacking on 50 more miles right off the bat. I have seen a 75 mile ride offered in Ontario and that is what I would look to before trying a 100.
