I did this last year, best century ever. Great views, great vibe, only 300 riders limited so there's never crazy crowds. The best part: the Wubba's BBQ at the end was some of the finest damn post-ride food I have ever had. Man, I can taste it still!
Northbend's dead on; most folks thought the climbing was done when they hit the rim, but there's still approx 3500 vert ft of climbing left around the 30 mi rim road before you start down. That descent though is awesome.
