    I'm only riding this much mileage in preparation for Butterfield on Feb. 17. I'm a little nervous as it will be my most challenging ride to date. I want the miles (and climbing too, of course) and figure this is a good way to get them in! Once I get Butterfield in, I'll calm my riding down a bit. I don't want to overtrain which is what I did last year!

    You know you might want to PM Julian (I doubt that member is on here as often as the rest of us addicts are) and ask. I don't know the route and haven't checked out their website out yet to weigh in, Scott.

    Web site is www.julianactive.com

    We figure about 3000 feet of climb for the entire ride.

    Start and finish at Palm Canyon Resort.

    Go to the direction page and click on hybrid view and zoom in and out. It will give you a good birds eye view of the area.

    Pre registered price of $49 include shirt, ride, rest stops and after the ride Julian pie and ice cream along with refreshments.

    our e-mail is julianactive@sbcglobal.net if you have any other questions.

    I'm not sure but I think the rt is part of the Borego to the Sea rt. plus some. I've heard a portion repeats a pice of the eralier miles.

    If it is thte same course, I think it's a nice ride. I did B to the Sea and really like it. Only a small part of the road is rough. I thought it went by quickly and didn't really bother me. The is some gentle climbing. You did GMR so this would be a breeze for you. SOme of the climbing you dont even really notice. You'll look at your speedo and wonder why you are going slow. Then realize you're climbing. Almost like a false flat in some areas. I really enjoy the area!

    Gina did the Tour of Borreego alone a few years back. 38 miles. I let her ride alone while I drove my truck as a support vehicle for her. It was cool. The riders and people out there have a great cycling attitude. I had fun on B to S and the Tof B a couple of other times I did it. Was great weather all 3 or 4 times we were out there. The last tiem I did it was the year beofre some of the forum members did it in the rain, a couple ago!

    Gina really liked the Tof B and flew thru it easily(38 miles). I'd really like to take her out ther for her first century on singles. We'll see though. I do prefer the ride to TourDe PlamSprings. Post lunch was good comper to PS which gave you NOTHING! Lunch was great. Food ,desert, drinks. Plus the crowd was way small compared to PS. Just enough riders to have fun, but not enough to consider over crowded.

    I say go for it! I want to return for the ride but have lots of stuff going on. My daughter moving to AZ, selling our home, and the death of an old family friend. I just might have to do it to make myself feel better.

    Thanks for the info..I'm getting mixed reviews. I think good riding partners can make a less-than ideal ride a good one though...

    The few times I did it, I rode a lone. The riders were friendly though, so I had a good time. Of course Gina followed me in the truck. Prolly why I was so stoked! The riders were friendly to her as well. At the psot lunch, they were laughing and telling me how they though some woman in a truck was stocking them!

    I prolly enjoyed it cause I like the rides that aren't so crowded. Some like big rides, I prefer the medium populated.

    I already paid. I think the ride will be fun, but the 3-hour drive is making me think about getting a room the night before now.

    According to Google, it's only 2ish hours away. Maybe Google drives faster.

    I got my packet and ride number today. It's almost like cardboard. With holes. Do they expect us to pin these on?

    We will have ties at the registration area. You can tie them onto your bike or around your top tube or just carry it with you.
