400. The ride is also set up for others, as there is a 65 miler that starts at the same spot as the 100 miler, and a 35 miler that starts where the 65 miler ends. Of the 400 that start- less than 50% finish, and it is surprising how few of the older riders drop out. They have enough sense to pace themselves for the distance.
