Dairyland Dare

Anyone doing the Dairyland Dare? After 3 years of the Quadrapedal I thought it was time. Any insight s and advice appreciated.

I did this ride a few years ago.
Insight- Start early as you can. Crack of dawn in case it is a hot day you can get a good start.
Advice- Set your heart rate monitor alarm high as it will go. As I recall going up some of the climbs- all you could hear was heart rate monitor alarms and heavy breathing.
Have fun it is a good ride

Great ride. Very comparable to the Quadrupedal, but with chip timing. Same terrain, same organizer.

EDIT: and yes I'm signed up for it, 3rd time.
