    I've done it before and I wasn't impressed, so I won't be doing it again. The climb up Turnbull was the highlight, but now that's part of one of my training routes, but overall, not that great IMHO.

    The organization and food were both excellent, it's just the route that didn't inspire.

    Hope you two have a great time with it!

    I'm doing the 30-mile one. It's my first.

    Thanks Rick....I've never ridden that area before so it's going to be a bit of an adventure...

    Good luck Condorita!

    I had a good time, seeing areas I wouldn't ordinarily ride in all alone. I was impressed with the Rio Hondo Trail--while it's not as nice as the SART, it's certainly nicer and better maintained than SGRT. And I managed to do it in less than 4 hours!!

    I had a fun time doing the 60. There were quite a few people doing this ride! I had a sprint to the finish against a recumbent. I think he gave it to me...! A bit of a challenging ride for me with over 3000ft climbing according to my Garmin. Fun ride, friendly, fun people!
