Wow - we spent four or five summers in Sequim WA. FANTASTIC place to ride and GREAT weather. Almost never rains.
I am finally in TX - now maybe I can get ready.
Carbonfiberboy. Re: Pee stops - glad to hear your plumbing pipes aren't rusty and plugged up. In a hundred miler I'm looking at almost hourly pee stops. That makes riding in populated areas a real challenge.
I have decided to make this ride extra special by raising money for a Colorado Search & Rescue command center. Will ask all friends and relatives to donate by the mile and a bonus if I finish in less that 7 hours ride time. The bonus should motivate me to work harder. One of my grandsons will be riding with me for the first time. Maybe I can draft him all the way and make it in under seven.
Thanks to all for the training ideas. Will let y'all know how it works out.
Try ~700mg total saw palmetto (SPB) in two equal doses, daily. It works. I've slept as much as 8 hours without getting up! No discernible side effects. Your doctor will have better stuff, but which does have side effects. Some folks take double the SPB which I take. The efficacy can vary with the brand. I've been using NOW brand FWIW.

Did the saw palmetto thing years ago - even participated in med study. Was in study about four years and they dropped the project due to no real positive results. Got worse eventually and doc put me on med. Better for awhile and then worse. Doc put me on med to shrink the P. That made things better but still on med. Operation only option left and I have no desire to go thru that unless things get much worse again.
Meanwhile I P about three times a night and about hourly during heavy liquid consumption. Like two big mugs of coffee in AM and lots of water on longer bike ride. I try to cut back on liquids in the afternoon and that seems to help at night. Above history covers about 25 years.
