If you've ever thought of wanting to do this event, this is a glimpse of the ride.

Nice video and thanks for posting.
I was out there too. Started a few minutes after you from Turtle Rock. Was really a great day.
Saw you guys a couple weeks earlier at the Alta Alpina climbing up Kingsbury Grade. You caught me 2 minutes into that video grinding up the hill.
Awesome video and Awesome ride!
Hi Nancy, nice vid, photos, and ride, you guys are great!
Nice video. Almost like you're really there, without the suffering or hypoxia.

Thanks! Congrats to you for finishing too! Wasn't the descent down Kingsbury fun? Great ride!
Nancy, you have a great blog, which I find myself reading from time to time. Thanks!
Thanks, feel free to share the link to the blog. Nancy
Quite an accomplishment, but it doesn't sound like it was the best environment. I too dislike big crowds, and this seems like it was one long line after another. Maybe they should limit the number of entrants (or do they?). Has this ride always been like this? Anyway, 15,000' of climbing...like a BOSS!
I had no long line problems other than packet pickup. :shrug:
Enjoyed the report and especially the video. Thanks.
