2017 IBR Checkpoints 1 and 2
June 28, 2017
The 11-day 11,000 mile Iron Butt Rally riders began their challenging journey from Minneapolis on June 21st. They scattered about the USA and Canada making their way to Checkpoint 1 in Allen, TX. I am fortunate to live in the area of the checkpoints for this year’s rally.
Jason Jonas has done a great job with tracking riders in events like this through his Spotwalla site.

A few riders had arrived by the time I made it to the checkpoint.

Checkpoint 2 was also in Allen, TX. I arrived with only a couple of riders checked in, but many more rolled in soon after. I saw lots of happy faces. That’s what it’s all about… Enjoying and completing the challenge.
