Last year I did the challenge and got my patch. Heck. The fact there was a TANGIBLE reward made me gut it out when it was cold and even rainy. I have some of my cold weather gear as a result of doing this last year as it was cold and wet in So Cal that week.
Throwing in a ride up GMR to the Village during this week as well on 12/29 if anyone wants to join us (doing with team Unlikely Cyclist)....of course weather permitting.
