D2R2 2013 - ride reports or photos?
 
Did anyone else on the forums ride D2R2 this year? I'm looking for pictures and reports.

Here's my excessively long ride report, with photos linked to my Flickr set.

I only did the 100K, so I'm hesitant to post about it in the LD forum, but it took more out of me than my last century! Those 10-15% grades up loose gravel get to you after a while.

Nice write-up and pics. I did the 180K on my Surly LHT. Here's a pic looking down from about half-way up infamous Archambo Rd. (27% grade). I was walking by then. :)

Thanks! And thanks for posting the picture. I've been thinking of giving Archambo a try, just to experience the fun myself; I doubt I'll be doing the 180 by next year (maybe in 2-3).
