COLD!! Ha! Actually, after the first couple of hours, it wasn't that bad.
I did the 30 - 16 of that with my 6 year old and 8 year old at about 7-8 MPH. I finally put them in the SAG wagon after 16 miles when it passed by us again and they said they were cold. I then finished up on my own while my wife picked up the boys.
All in all, not a bad ride at all. Roads were good, not too terribly crowded, although there were a few drivers that seemed like they were in a rush to put a fire out somewhere. But, I guess you get that everywhere that the roads aren't closed. Course was well marked other than 1 turn, but there was a MB policeman at that turn to ensure everybody made it.
I think I finished near last, but had a great time with my kids and each has vowed to do more.......when it gets warmer.
