What’s the best way to show your true love how much you care?

--Nah, too expensive.

--Nope, too fattening.

--No way, bad for allergies.

Besides, all of these are too commercial and materialistic.

The one true gift, one that comes from your heart, soul, and backside, is a dedicated Iron Butt ride.

So plan to ride any Saddlesore or Bun Burner ride on Valentine’s Day, February 14, and you’ll receive two special Valentine certificates, one of which you can belatedly present to your true love.

You can plan any route you wish, but you must be riding some time during February 14.  That means you can start on February 13 and finish on February 14; or start on February 14 and finish on February 15.

For the Gold Ride:

You must visit any city with 'love', 'diamond',  'rose' or 'valentine' in the city name.  Get a DBR with that city name.

Submit your ride application through the normal channels.

Documentation:  See here.



DBR - Dated Business Receipt

A DBR is a machine generated receipt with the date, time and LOCATION on it.  Check it - do not assume it is correct.  A receipt with an incorrect time/date/location is worthless.  Check and re-check.

Fees:  see fee page


Standar rules for SaddleSore and Bun Burner apply.

You may start and finish any place you like.

You may take any route you like.

You must have at least one DBR dated February 14.

Your official time is determined by the starting and ending receipts.  PLEASE check these documents and make sure the clock and date are correct! is strongly recommended but not required. 

Remember it is YOUR responsibility to prove you visited all  required stops in the required order.  Spotwalla goes a long way towards this proof.


There is no additional merchandise for this ride.
