  • Cannondale - $50/day - undetermined but the site lists carbon, Ultegra components and compact gearing (50/34 front, 11/32 rear). Reverse image search says 2013 CAAD10, but I think the image is old
  • Tarmac Disc SL6 Expert - $100
  • Roubaix Sport - $60/ day
The difference between $89 and $110 (for two days) is small enough to not be part of the decision. Given the cost of being able to do the ride, even an extra $100 is moot.

They are all decent bikes (based on just that, it won't matter which you choose).

You probably should prefer having lower gears. And info is missing from most of the options.

Assuming that the others likely have typical gearing (28 in the back), the Cannondale is the best choice.
