Has anybody done the Best of the Bay with Cherry City Cyclists?

http://bob.cherrycitycyclists.org/

Has anybody done this ride before? I get blank stares from people when I mention it over on the peninsula side of the Bay, even from bike stores. I signed up since it looks like a good training ride for Markleeville, but I have yet to find a single person who's been on it.

Edit : Mainly I'm wondering what the support/sag/etc is like so I can pack my trunk bag accordingly.

Hey scrubbo, I did a century put on by Cherry City Cyclists about 20 years ago it was well supported but not very helpful for you today the routes look pretty good to me.

I needn't have worried! The food (aside from the start table) was great and varied! There were honest to goodness homemade latkas at one stop. SO GOOD! And a small number of riders, which was nice as there were no lines for bathrooms. I would go again in a heart beat. After my legs stop hating me for Sierra Road at mile 90, that is.

Here's my write up if anybody wants to see pictures of latkas. And other stuff.
