Video from 2012 ride here:
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? ;-)
