Too bad. It looks like an awesome route. If I was out there by myself, I'd probably bag it after 50 or 60 miles. With a 10AM start time, I'd be lucky to finish 90 before sunset. Add to it 6 hours of driving (probably a lot more with the weekend catskills traffic) and it would be a no go for me.
I have to laugh at the fact that the organizers want to charge $75 for breakfast with Floyd on top of the $120 entrance fee ($95 + $25 surcharge for entering after May 1). What planet are these people from?
