The Iron Butt Rally diary -- "Against the Wind" -- by participant Ron Ayres, puts you inside ten consecutive one-thousand-mile days a group of hard-core long distance motorcycle riders endures.

Each rider is out to win this legendary motorcycle competition.

Not only is the Iron Butt Rally a test of physical strength and capabilities, it's also a mental endurance event where motorcycle riders struggle against the unforgiving clock, the road, the weather and each other's strategies and riding strengths.

Written by Iron Butt rider Ron Ayres

Written by Ron Ayres, who finished the 1995 rally in sixth-place, this book describes all phases of what has been called the most grueling motorcycle riding endurance test anywhere.

It shows how individual riders dig deep into their personal reserves of strength and willpower to manage fatigue and stay out of danger.

"Against the Wind"

The Iron Butt Rally participants include men and women from age 20 through 70. While their backgrounds differ widely, they all have one thing in common; they love extreme long distance motorcycle riding.

And they're good at it.

Obviously, a rider can't just show up and start doing consecutive one-thousand mile days for ten days if he or she hasn't trained for it.

You'll learn successful contestants' deepest thoughts and clever strategies and share their extreme highs and lows throughout this competition.

Why do they ride?

You'll learn...

  • Riders' motivations...
  • How the rally is scored...
  • What happens from day to day...
  • How the riders plan their routes...

What it's like to ride to the very limit of endurance...

...then ride another day.

We learn that winning requires a delicate blend of endurance, strength, competitiveness, luck and self confidence -- from start to finish.

"This Iron Butt saga has become required reading for anyone considering competing in most any long distance motorcycle riding competition.

It also provides great advice and information for anyone who likes to rack up serious mileage -- even occasionally -- when out for a motorcycle ride.

But even if long Iron Butt-type rides are not your thing, Ayres' first-person account of this unique motorcycling event and the people drawn to it provides you with fascinating reading.

Once you pick up "Against the Wind" you'll have a hard time putting it down.
