    I watched the two videos you provided links for and also saw a couple of videos for this years ride. Looks like an awesome ride. I see it goes through part of my old hometown, Hammond, IN.

    Maybe in the next year or two I'll have built up enough of a good mileage base to give it a try.

    It's easier than you think, and a lot of fun. See you next year? ;-)

    Hope so. I'm going to make it my "goal ride" for 2014 instead of doing the annual Bike The Drive. Going to work on building up my base miles over the winter so by the time June arrives I'll be ready to roll.
