I rode it last year and had a good time. I used the "bag shuttle" service so I could change clothes once I got to the finish. There were no showers which was a disappointment. My family met me afterwards and we went the Wurstfest, which is a lot of fun...if you like beer, sausage and German music! Obviously, I didn't have to use the return shuttle.

As far as the ride itself, I think clocked it at just under 62 miles. The ride is very well marked and the rest stops were easy to access and had more than enough variety to satisfy any cravings. This is NOT a "Hill Country" ride...no long, difficult climbs...more gently rolling hills. It wasn't an issue last year but the wind can really be a pain. The ride is primarily south and that's typically the direction the wind's coming from here in Central TX. I've heard previous years that people have just flat out quit because of it. Last year it was, maybe, 10 - 15 mph max.
