We did the Metric, my stokers second longest ride ever and longest this year. Red Rider and her subordinate set quite the pace for our small group for the first leg, it's no wonder they break spokes, their acceleration on hills is a rarity among tandem teams I've ridden with. We split off after the first rest stop for the shorter ride and eventually made back in good order, among the first dozen to arrive, the big lunch wasn't even ready when we got there.
Although I did hear grumblings to the contrary, I found the rest stops well stocked, manned by people who appreciated our participation and the course was well marked so folks like us who are not real familiar with the area had no chance to get lost. All in all, they put on a great ride, We look forward to next year!
