    I'm thinking about coming in from out of town for the swap meet. I may have to incorporate this ride in my plans.
    Any idea how long a ride this is?

    It's usually less than 20 miles. The reason for the estimated time window that's given (10am-1pm) is they make stops for regrouping ,usually a coffee house ,and lunch. At the venues ,typically someone will have a few comments while there and time is allowed for participants to take photos. You are welcome to join the ride for any portion of time/mileage you wish.
