I did the first ever Td'O - it was the worst-organized event I've ever done.

I've heard it's gotten better but I still don't trust 'em.

There was no map (just a list of turns), the road arrows were wrong, they ran out of food, much of the ride was on a trail going past sewage treatment plants and the like, it wasn't just organic (I'm great with that), it was also vegan (little harder to go with but OK) and there were no breads at all and nothing that was cooked... strawberries and melons just don't get you through 100 miles.

From my blog ride review:

Scorecard (10 = perfect):
Course: 5
Difficulty: 4
Organization: 3
Food: 2
