The route is calling you, is this the year you answer?

Some riders are still out on the course, but here is what I’ve gathered so far. If you see errors or riders missing, just post in the comments.

So a lot of folks are live blogging, tweeting, gramming, liking, plus-one-ing and a lot of other stuff, so I’m going to try and centralize the updates for you.

The “official” tag for Instagram or Twitter is #crushthecommonwealth. Yes, it’s long, but you only have to type it in once. Your app will remember it and it will pop up after a few letters. #CTC is already taken by a bunch of random gobbledygook.

Friends, family and rivals can follow your progress on this page.

When you’re done, or quit, you can notify the authorities via that method, and we’ll figure out your total time via the timestamp.

Or you can text! I set up a text inbox. Simply send a text to crushthecommonwealth@textem.net (yes, it will work) and it pops into the inbox. If you feel like testing it out, just send a message and we’ll respond.

Turned that back on, sorry. If it doesn’t work, just let us know… by… sending a smoke signal or something.

Big list, will figure out later

I’ll do the math for ride time once I get some confirmation on the start time.

Awesome year, some serious gumption was needed to stay out there in the wind and cold.

Send me an email if you want me to use your last name or if there are issues with finish times.

Somewhat garbled message from (I think) an Eric and Gaven has them finishing a little after 2:30pm Saturday.
