My nephew and his friends did the long ride- sounds like they had a blast. I've done it in the past and love this ride. Your blog didn't link for me for some reason. Would love to read your account. Was so sorry to miss this ride this year- had work and a wedding yesterday. Congrats!

Yup, did the 100k. Great ride. So painful, but worth it as well. I had a great time bombing down the descents as well. Nice blog post btw.

That stair climb up to Apex was tough, but so worth it for the view and the peaches! I'm already looking forward to next year's ride.

I rode my first one this year. Didn't have enough training miles under my belt, so I was cooked by the lunch stop after 39 miles on the 115K loop. The run down Green River road was indeed beautiful. It's a shame that lots of it got washed away.
