The Iron Horse Challenge is born!

6 09 2008

Lou Gehrig, whose name will forever be linked with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), was also known by the nickname the “Iron Horse” and I couldn’t help being drawn to the symbolic and visual nature of this title.  I have struggled with the reference/homage that I felt I kept using by referring to the Dayton/Cincinnati/Columbus ride as the Tri City Challenge (which bears a strong resemblance to the Tri State Trek.  I always felt that this ride needed to have its own unique title, something that would draw together the spirit and the nature of its efforts and I think it is only fitting to dub the ride with its new name:

The Iron Horse: Tri City Challenge !
