I've done this event each of the last two years. Two years ago, I did it as my first organized ride ever, the 30 miler. Last year, I did the Century Ride. The scenery is nice, the course is mostly rollers, I cannot recall a serious climb on it. The rest stops were plentiful, appeal more to the granola heads out there (not that there's anything wrong with that), with some local peanut butter, oranges, etc. At the end, there is grub in the community center, which I passed on, because it was like tofu casserole.

But, it's low key which is nice and the weather has been great (last year it was in September). The only problem I see with it this year, is that it competes directly with Tour of Napa, which I think is a better, more challenging ride (with two significant climbs on the 100 miler and a fantastic BBQ at the end).
