I agree with Matthew that the two are not mutually exclusive. Take a look at my ride report and let me know if you think I wasn't able to contemplate the sacrifices of those memorialized. I spent about 30 minutes at each memorial so my SS took over 22 hrs vs. a more normal 17-18. I couldn't do that with a BBG pace but probably could have on a BB ride. But that's because I don't sleep on 1 or 2 day rally rides - I get too wound up wanting to get to the next bonus or in this case anticipating the next memorial & thinking about the ones I had already been to. A regular cert ride bores me to the point where I just lose interest and get tired. Add some bonus locations into the mix and the mental challenge keeps me engaged without getting tired - those forced rest bonuses on a rally don't usually see me sleeping but most often doing the paperwork in an all-night McDonaldsGaryC wrote:Just a thought, and I don't want to rustle any feathers, but isn't doing a SS or BB contradictory to what the TOH is all about. Don't get me wrong, I've done a SS and BB my self, but not during the TOH. It seems to me the purpose of doing the TOH is to visit the memorials and contemplate the sacrifice those men and women gave. I am just too hurried during a SS or BB to pay much attention to what the memorial is for.
