>it's so short, only 26.4 miles.<
It's actually about 21 miles - it's not quite the same course as the runners' marathon. Do what I do - ride from your home, or from wherever, and back, after the marathon - in my case, 42 miles.
There are only too many people the first quarter of a mile or so - then it begins to thin out.
Edit: ride 21 miles as fast as possible - carry some extra weight on your bike: water bottles, panniers loaded with weights, etc. Twenty one miles won't seem so short.
