I plan to. If things work out, I'll ride to the ride (about 10 miles), ride the ride, and ride back. That's what I did last year, on the 46.6-mile ride, so that gave me a Metric Century.
One of the guys on the bike ride today was saying the 100k route was out because of construction, but the website doesn't show that- shows the 50k route being cancelled.
Last year, this SEEMED like the hottest ride of the year. I think it was a combination of moderate heat, high humidity, and my lack of acclimatization to that heat- sort of the first hot ride of the year. I thought I was going to melt. The ice cream at the finish sure was nice.
There may be a post in the Texas forum on the ride, too, by the way.
