It’s Bike Week in Daytona. Each year the Iron Butt Association holds a “party.” Iron Butt riders from all over the country gather in Jacksonville for a rally ride on Thursday and Dinner on Friday. The rally rides have a theme. This year’s theme is “Plane Crazy.” Riders will visit static airplane displays. This example is an F-4 in Susanville, CA.
There are two rally rides this year, “Plane Crazy 1000” and “Plane Crazy BBG.” (BBG stands for Bun Burner Gold in IBA parlance.) Both start and end in Jacksonville. The 1000 mile ride takes us to 12 planes. The 1500 takes those riders to 7 planes. Riders are given a numbered flag and have to take a picture of the flag and plane at each stop. Both rides have to be completed in 24 hours.
If you click on the menu choice, “View Trips,” you’ll see links to some maps. One of the maps shows where many of the riders are. (Participation in this map is voluntary.) My tag is TMS. “My Plane Crazy” shows my track.
I hope you’ll check our progress on Thursday. I’ll post my pictures on Facebook. I hope you’ll subscribe to my blog. And feel free to add a comment.
