Ice Cream Insanity 1000


Recommended Posts

  • Supporting Member

The Iron Butt Association (IBA) has a well-known entry-level ride called a Saddlesore 1000: a documented 1000-mile ride in less than 24-hours. After many years, these rides are routine to LD veterans.

Nowadays, the IBA has "themed" Saddlesore 1000 rides that add more of challenge to the ride. One of these rides is called the "Ice Cream Insanity 1000", which is essentially as SS1K, but the rider stops for Ice Cream SIX (6) times during the ride. Further, the Ice Cream stops must be 150 miles apart. No chains like Baskin Robbins, DQ, etc: only real ice cream parlors or mom/pop shops scooping ice cream can be used. Each ice cream stop must be accompanied with a date/time/location receipt, and a photo of you eating ice cream/drinking milkshake, etc.

On Thursday, Aug 10, I did an Ice Cream 1000 ride on my 2020 Tracer 900 GT, pending verification.  🔥

Ice Cream #1 at the start, West Richland, WA:

Last one! Final Ice Cream #6 in Reno, Nevada... 1040.7 miles in ~ 16 1/2 hours, I am pretty tired at this point:

Coming home the next day, the roads are hot, dusty, and long....

So it sounds like a good excuse to grab a state-of-the-art Fields Station milkshake!

Then take the fun roads north of Burns, Oregon all the way home!   A fun 2 days!

I think ice cream every 150 miles might be the only way to make riding in Nevada tolerable.  😎

Bravo!!!

Born to ride

Work to ride

Ride to work

Ride to eat frozen custard! 

I have dozens of frozen custard shops on my GPS SD card

I can't figure out though why I have a paunch and can't loose it?

BTW I wear suspenders too LOL

I wish I could I'd try such a SS1k but today I was in pain again within 35 miles and wasn't really too perturbed to cut the ride short due to rain (again). The last 60 miles were excruciating 🥴

I usually say, " It always could be worse".  But I'm starting to think I may be soon hitting a wall, and the doc's aren't offering much more. Fusion helped but the pain migrates.  A spinal implant?  Nerve drugs helped but ive reached a plateau with them.  But is the sciatica what's causing the hip pain? Can't get them to agree on this.  They sy my hips aren't that bad...

Sorry to hijack your thread.

Your older guy images really hit home because all I wanna do is ride.

Keep at it kid!
