Iron Butt Rides

Here’s a quick summary of the Iron Butt rides I’ve done on various bikes, sort of in the order I’ve owned, borrowed or hired them.  I’ve done 49 individual Iron Butt Rides, some attracting multiple certifications where I’ve nested named rides in longer ones or done difficult rides back to back.
