    The Sedalia 1000

    Greetings,

    On behalf of the Iron Butt Association I am delighted to announce the Sedalia 1000.

    For anyone attending the BMW MOA International Rally in Missouri later this year, we are pleased to announce the Sedalia 1000 long distance challenge. This is a special SaddleSore 1000 ride (1000 miles in 24 hours) organized and sanctioned by the Iron Butt Association especially for the Rally.

    The Sedalia 1000 is four different rides. Two of the rides start from locations east of the really and two rides start from Denver but use different routes to ensure riders meet the requirements of a SaddleSore 1000.

    The Sedalia 1000 allows riders to begin their ride between 12:01 a.m. Saturday, July 14th and 11:00 a.m. Thursday, July 19; however, riders must finish in Sedalia 24 hours after they begin and no later than 11:00 a.m. Friday, July 20.

    In an effort to simplify the documentation requirements, participants will be starting from one of three locations: Scranton, PA, Jacksonville, FL or Denver, CO.

    Finishers will receive a distinctive certificate worthy of framing, as well as other Iron Butt Association gifts at a unique Pizza Party ceremony. Founded by Iron Butt Rally veterans during Daytona Bike week, the Pizza Party is an IBA custom steeped in tradition. Mike Kneebone, the IBA Chairman, assisted by Long Distance legends Paul and Voni Glaves will host the party and personally present each finisher with his/her certificate.

    Pre-registration will be required in order to participate in this special event. We will announce the details, once finalized on the MOA forum. Registration will open as soon as possible.

    Feel free to post any questions or if you prefer email me directly.

    We look forward to seeing you in Sedalia.

    Ride far safely,

    Rob Nye

    in state 1000

    I live a mere 180 miles from Sedalia. How about offering a special "within-state" award for those in Missouri who might like to do a SS1000?

    I don't know if we can make an in-state work but we can definitely figure out a loop that starts and finishes at the rally site. That was a popular ride in Bloomsburg.

    A route entirely in MO and mostly on 4 lanes could be as follows starting in Sedalia.
    50 west to 71 (Lee's Summit)
    71 south to 44 (Carthage)
    44 east to 65 (NE Springfield, MO)
    65 south to 60(SE Springfield)
    60 east to 55 (Sikeston)
    55 north to 270 (Mehville)
    270 west/north to 70 (Marlyn Heights)
    70 west to 61 (Wentzville)
    61 north to 36 (Hannibal)
    36 west to 65 (Chillicothe)
    65 south to Sedalia (Sedalia)

    Following that route from the Fair Grounds and back is 1000 miles.

    I'm not an iron butt rider but I know the MO highways very well.

    I hope that helps.

    I would agree that this is an excellent route. If you move the next to last "checkpoint" west on 36 from Chillicothe to Cameron, then head back to Sedalia, the mileage increases to around 1040, which gives a bit of cushion. Also you can go around the south side of Springfield on the James River Expressway which shoots you out on 60 east, a better route than around the north side of town.

    The last leg could be done in a couple of different ways, south on I-35 to KC, then east on 70 to 65, or you could backtrack from Cameron on 36 to 65 then south. Mileage either way is not much different, just depends if you want to avoid the city traffic. I think corner documentation at Cameron would provide sufficient proof under the IBA guidelines.

    The only reason I did not include James River Expressway was because I thought it had stoplights.

    A route such as this would require a gas station or other business that can provide an electronic receipt showing city, state, time and date would be difficult, plus it would require 13 receipts and 11 stops. Not a good plan for a first time SaddleSore.

    As I said I am going to come up with a route that starts and finishes at the fairground but it will not entirely in MO.

    I believe that this general route could be proved under the IBA rules by receipts from these corners: (in other words, can you find any route between these corners that is less than 1000 miles?)

    Sedalia Start and Finish

    1. South suburban Kansas City area
    2. Carthage, Mo
    3. Sikeston, Mo
    4. Hannibal, Mo,
    5. Cameron, Mo

    Intermediate stops would be at the discretion of the rider.

    24 hour fuel is available at all of these corners, or within a very short distance.
