Very happy to hear you complete the ride unscathed, and all the volunteers/ride marshals did a fantastic job despite the horrid conditions. We had marshals sweep to ensure there were no other riders on the route while contingency plans were made for those that were SAG-ed.
Some things I have heard / saw:
1. There was a stretch of road past Congers where some unscrupulous people deposited tacks on the side of the road and resulted in flats for a number of riders.
2. A rider was clipped by a car and arrived at the rest stop, got bandaged up, and continued on. Very inspiring and really showed true mettle for the cause!
