Yeah, go.

Here's the route. 105 miles, 11,000 feet of climbing.

That's a big day. My rule of thumb is that climbing 200 feet is like adding another flat road mile. So it's similar to 150 flat miles. But having a sag driver is great, you can go for it and bail out if needed.

At least the climbing is front loaded, with 7000 feet in the first 50 miles. And it's a nice mix of climbing and descending.

For me, pacing is key. I want to go too hard at the start, and pay for it later. I've used a heart rate monitor to keep my efforts at a sustainable pace.
