Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

🇮🇹💦 Of the Loin /

Hey all!

Thought I'd make a short little update post for everyone here:

Yes, its still happening!

Yes, we will have some COVID related protocols in place and hope to share details of those as we get closer to the event!

What will lodging look like?

ACAT: All Camping All Times I hope you like washing yourself in a creek or large river

Why does your signup form at https://bakersdozenrun.com/registration/ really suck?

Because I am bad at Wordpress. Looking for help in that department plz shoot me an email! Otherwise the signup page does work, it just doesn't tell you that it works.

Registration can also be handled at the event but please please please please sign up in advance

Make sure to also follow @bakersdozenrun on Instagram where you can get my same ramblings but with pictures!

Any race-critical updates will also be shared here

Currently having a little contest where I'm looking for submissions of people's bike builds and the winner will recieve a little treat during the race! So submit your photos on Instagram

Damn beat me to the banana hammock...gag....

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

my summer filled up with events and i dont have vacation for this.... so if imma show up at the Roanoke Finish line, what should i bring? pizza? chocolate chip pumpkin bread? Gatorade?

heads up(referring to the day of Roanoke Finish)

1) last i checked there are still road blocks up on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Roanoke, this may complicate getting to the finish.

2) also, im not gonna say where, but between Christiansburg and Salem, a part of rte11 is 60mph...like seriously maybe a1/2mile...its the dumbest thing ever... but there's that rule after 55mph roads. can this be ignored by riders this once? if not y'all need to plan on riding in the grass next to the road or something cause there is not a quick way to go around it once you commit to that route.

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

we had to cross a 4 lane 70mph road without lights in Texas during the 1st year i think? & we were also on 70mph roads just period that year as well i think. i remember tricks being UPSET with me.

either way, i think we will all be fine on those little stretches of fast road.

causing traffic is kind of badass tbh.

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

I own that exact pack of men's low rise briefs, so I guess I'm all set.

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

Anyone else starting to get really excited for this?

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

i cant do it, but imma use PTO and ride out to the Roanoke stopping point. i'll be passing through Roanoke this weekend, i'll let y'all know if the parkway is still shutdown. Google seems to think the construction has shifted south, i'll validate.

ok, so a part of it will be closed AND there is road resurfacing elsewhere

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

ok, if we go here:

https://www.nps.gov/blri/planyourvisit/roadclosures.htm

then ya see:

1) VA Route 24 (Washington Avenue) to US Route 220

Open, only partially on the Route 24 end to allow access to Explorer Park

112-115 Closed for all uses and access until further notice

2) Roanoke Mountain Loop

Closed until further notice

3) US Route 220 to Adney Gap

Closed

Closed due to road damage

so i donno where ya wanna end the route for that day, but the only way to get up there is the road up to the Mill Mountain Star, but you wont be able to get to Roanoke Mountain.

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

Website says camping spots are taken care of except Deals Gap and we need to reserve there, but they are fully booked and do not seem to have reservation for camping?

Also, are the camping locations defined yet? We probably want to hotel a few nights so want to get that stuff booked sooner then later.

Camping spots in NC are hard to come by right now….

Post itinerary here.

I might crash it. And run chase if NYC and Philly peeps wanna ride I can fit three peds and 3 peeps. More if we use the roof.

It's a bucket list thing. I am 55 so as a metaphore to mopeding I have created the hill and it's all downhill WOT now. I am waiting on a check. It's gonna be close.

NYC-Boulder co. Is gonna be in a month or so.

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

good call on goat farm for camping here. That'll be really fun for y'all. super cool spot.

pumped to come see y'all off (edited)

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

Goat farm? What are you talking about?

Re: Baker's Dozen Run 2021 (Its happening)

I would like to maybe follow behind in my 24ft rv as a support vehicle. I have a carrier on the back, maybe carry some parts, fuel, first aid stuff and donuts? Any thoughts? Sounds like a cool event, My machines and my old frame wouldnt cut it but would love to be a part of this. Paul

Hi:

Since we are a team of like, two people essentially its tough to get info out and run the event smoothly

I'll be doing a couple podcasts/chats this week and you'll get some information there

75% of what you're going to need to know will be via Instagram or GroupMe

Deal's Gap Tent Camping has no reservations and is walk-up ONLY
