I skipped it because of the weather. The miserable weather ruined it, although 50 or so riders showed up for it. A couple of the guys I ride with did it. One bailed out after the 43 mile mark because the rain beat the crap out of him. The other made it through the full route but said it was one of the hardest rides he ever did. 65 miles of cold rain. I'll try it next year if it's dry.
