Where are all the local riders?

I have never ridden this ride before, is it just a bad ride?

Looks like they changed the route for this year. Previous years it was a super boring out and back through the suburbs. Total crap ride.

I am out at a wedding and won't get back in time, but lookks like it could be fun if you "drope some hamers"
