I've done it a few times. It's fun, well-organized, and well marked. The "challenge" course is challenging only if you haven't ridden at all since summer. The climbs are tough, but you just have to grind 'em out. The descents are fun, though.
A couple years ago, the WDYR coincided with Valentine's Day. I saw several people in costume (including Cupid!) on the long course.
My only objection to the ride is that it never lives up to its billing. The last several years it's been dry, clear, and relatively warm. A ride called "Worst Day of the Year" should have snow, hail, meteors, and locusts, dammit.
Comcast nuked my web page. It will return soon..
