With all the talk of upcoming rides, I was curious: is it possible to rank, in terms of difficulty, organized SoCal rides? I'm sure there would be much debate, and if you're not familiar (like myself) with any of the rides, you can't knowledgeably participate in the discussion. But I love to read what you all have to say about the various rides.
Of course, how do you decide what's difficult or not? Double centuries are probably harder than centuries. The 508 harder still and Paris-Brest-Paris (not in SoCal) hardest of all. Climbing definitely comes into play. Steepness of climbs has to count. But not if there's only 2-miles of them.
So let's limit the discussion to single centuries (not metric) for now. I'll watch and listen to your arguments and follow-up with a poll so we can make it "official" .
What are your impressions?
