I was referring to the new Bike Forums software. I've had a bit of trouble with it.

Worried about that food at the end. No PIE but just that little amount for your group? Seems 100 miles would have warranted more. Even more worried about the weather. Must have been cool due to the long sleeves- but it does seem a bit bright- perhaps your camera was over exposing. It even turned the sky a funny colour for December.
It was about 35 degrees at the start and warmed into the 40s. Problem was wind all day.
As to the food, it's the highlight of this ride. They feed us (about 90 riders) well on the ride, including hot soup at lunch, and then at the finish there was so much food they were asking us to take some home. Most of the food was Filipino style home cooked.
I had Adobo chicken on rice, pasta with meat sauce, curried vegetables, several empanadas, (small meat or vegetable pies), and some of those chicken skewers. No pie, but they had flan,(custard), with maple syrup! Also a pistachio pudding. A feast!
Here is a pic of the feed zone at the end. Those tables were covered with stoves, warmers, and serving trays.
Here is the volunteer group shot. These people worked hard to feed and keep track of us. They were always close if you had a flat or wanted a snack. This is truly the best supported group ride I've ever done.
