Wife and I rode the 56 (actually 63 mile) ride on the tandem. Those first miles were a bear and it took a lot of work, not just pedaling, but keeping the tandem upright and on the road. It was a character-building experience and we'll do it again in 2013, but the Century as we did in 2011. Certainly a reasonable first 100K or Century without the wind, but I can't imagine how discourage the wind was for many of the first-timers.
