    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,

    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.
