Yep, I've done it 2ce. They change the route every year. The support is adequate, the food is bad (if you buy the meal plans, if you don't then the food is whatever you buy, but you're going to be waiting in line for restaurant seating), the camping is crowded, the showers are hot. It's a cheap/good value bike vacation with lots of miles and usually great scenery. It can be a rolling party or a race, depending on what you want out of it.

I'm sure I'll do it again. Doing other stuff this year.

Besides valygrl a few of my other friends have ridden it and enjoyed the experience.
With two young kids at home I need to wait a bit and my interests lie elsewhere in regards to cycling at the moment.

I rode it two years ago. It was pretty good, but big organized rides are not usually my thing.
I may try the Colorado Rocky Mtn Bike Tour, the same type of ride, smaller group (500?) in August.

Mountain bike is more my speed for sure. But this seemed like a good time.
