Anyone else interested in this? Has anyone ridden it before?
I've done it once on a half-bike, twice on tandems. It's a very pretty ride, with a couple of hills after mile 80 that test your stamina. If you ride any hills around here then you should have no problem.
We used to live in the area and stay with friends when we go down; however, if you stay at Flying Flags resort (hot tub!) make your reservations ASAP to ensure your spot. The hotels & motels in Solvang and Buellton fill up fast; those in Lompoc not quite as fast. I'd commit now, though, if you plan to stay in one.
