I am not planning on riding this but I did take the opportunity to map the route in MapMyRide. I believe it is correct with the exception of I do not know exactly where the SaraLee facility is so I could not pinpoint exactly where you cross the RR tracks.

Everythings cool, except the two miles of road rash on my arms and legs, the huge gash in my arm from a rock slicing me open, and the scratches on my right shifter, rear der, and new tape that's torn to pieces. :o
I sped through a corner, and slid through some gravel. Not pretty. But I'm up and at 'em. :D

Very nice ride. Kinda cool at the start but we warmed up - oh yes - we warmed up real good.
60 miles @ 21 mph.
Video of an attack. Then me bridging the gap and 2 of us taking off like bats outta the bad place.
It's a view from behind the group. But on the 50 second mark look for me directly in front of the greenish yellow jersey'ed gent on the left. I shoot around the group and take off after attacker and we go have some fun for a bit. At 1:15 we are pretty far ahead with a couple of chasers. 1:50 we're still far ahead with two guys chasing. No one else wanted to have fun. :D
Think about doing this next year. For its first year we had close to 100 riders and raised a lot of money for the American Cancer Society.

Thanks for posting the video. Great to see some Freewheelers kits out there. I wish I could have been there.
