Miami Gran Fondo attendee who wants to double up

I will be doing Miami Gran Fondo this Nov 20th
Any Registered Riders lurking here are most welcome to join me and will be doing the Full Century. Expected 18-20mph for the ride.
I have some friends doing it but like folks that are fully trained to ride it.
Warm Pedals and Regards

I'm doing the Fondo on Sunday, I'm only signed up for the 55 mile route however. My longest ride to date is 60 miles so I don't want to push things with 100, but I'll be holding 20+ mph for my shorter distance, so if you want to ride along with me until the routes split I'd be glad to join you.

Now that it's over, how was it? I didn't get the email notice of the Fondo until 4 days before it happened, so I didn't even know about it.
I'm curious how it went.

It was a Great Ride, Did 100miles ant my ave. B ride class... I would think that my average would be better with some serious pace line going on at the middle.. I felt good with a group, solo and occasional pulling.
Good Ride, great training for wind gust at around Homestead area at one point a stretch of straigh 10 miles with winds brought the speed to about 7mph.. wide open field, no drafting will help you. What can you do?
Was well worth it! for the trip money spend have to make it a vacation.
Sorry I miss your post... but back in DC and training for NYC Gran Fondo in May, already signed up and hotel booked. This will be alot harder with Cat 5, 4s and maybe 3 climbs.. if you like to hook up once a month to NY for their training run, I got a spare room.
