This was my first organized ride ever...it was about 1993. I rode one of the shorter routes (I think about 24 miles) on my Specialized Diamondback MTB. It was the longest ride I'd ever done. I seem to recall they offered a century route back then.

Thanks for posting...62 mile in March shouldn't be a problem but it will at least give me something to train for.

Yes....I love this ride as well. Amazing people and great cause. You can also volunteer to ride a tandem for a stoker with a challenge, be it visual, physical, etc.....

The Rosedale Ride is a lot of fun. I hope to see you out there. I will have at least 2, maybe 4 kiddos and the wife with me.

Best,

Larry Murphy in Austin

Leaning towards this now if for no other reason than to force me out on the bike! I'll confirm later in the week.

I am such a fair weather rider that I decided to skip it due to overcast, cool conditions.
