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.
