I haven't done it, but @TMonk has. Here is the website, and the overall results are here. The first finishers averaged >25 mph for 106 miles with ~4k feet of climbing. OTOH, the last 300 or so folks (of 2123 total riders) took > 9 hours to do it. I definitely won't be on the sharp end. My guess is I'll end up around the five-hour mark if I find a paceline I'm comfortable with, probably a half-hour longer if I end up going solo. Two months or so off the bike ain't going to help my speed.

Demain, on roule!
