We have a good sized group going from here. I think about 8-10 riders. As of yesterday there were 257 signed up. Probably 30-40 more signed up, but didn't want their names published. We are concerned. Before BRAG has published their break-even was 800 riders.

When I saw the pdf/excel list with the 250 or so it certainly 'caught my attention,' as did your above acknowlegment of the same stats.
I just went looking for an attendance update as a result of your post....Could find none. Hopefully there was massive surge between the pdf/excel of April 22 and May 1 (after April 30 there is some type of late fee surcharge).
Guess we should brace ourselves..... BRAG has to breakeven.
I went back to the BRAG site and read thru the history for recent attendance - & ..... you may be well aware of the stats I am about to post (started in 1980) .... found the following attendance figures:
2008 - 1700; 2009 - 1500; 2010 - 1110; 2011 - 1100; 2012 & 2013 - could not find it posted.... do you know roughly what the attendance was for those last two years?
Last time I rode was 2001.
Please let me know if you hear any concrete/confirmed further info, as will I.

Brag did publish they did not make the breakeven number in 2012. I heard from reliable sources they did in 2013. Yea! As of May 9th, there are 457 riders signed up and published. Lots more not published I am sure. I am feeling better about things and looking forward to a great ride. Lets hope the weather does us good!
