I don’t know how we ever got it into our heads that voluntary suffering signifies dozens of qualities we look up to in society. In fact, we market suffering heavily as a means of embodying those qualities without actually having to do much other than hurt ourselves without dying.
I would like to consider myself a bit of an expert in this arena, especially since I just spent my weekend riding the 24 Hour Round the Clock Relay. By myself. Because apparently my friends are all much smarter than I am.

But 30 were solo riders. The top solo male rider was Ryan Gardiner of Jasper, Alberta, averaging 11.1 mph for 270 miles. Top solo female was Chelsea Magness of Bend, Oregon, averaging 10.8 mph for 270 miles.

Armed with tents, headlights, sleeping bags, bicycles and maybe even some beer, hundreds of bicycle enthusiasts and their families kicked off a weekend of camping and bicycle riding Saturday at Riverside State Park.
The 24-hour “Round the Clock” bike competition, in which participants compete for prizes and bragging rights, began at noon Saturday.
“It’s kind of like the Woodstock of mountain biking, really,” race Director Wendy Zupan Bailey said.
