Don't know if any of my buddies are doing it but I'm hoping to. I might have a scheduling conflict with an ocean sailing opportunity, waiting to see how that plays out before I sign up.

Wow, I was hoping this ride would have a HUGE response from the California contingent here

@PhotoJoe, you're good at rallying the troops...........can you work your magic?

Here's last years recap.

I think I've worn out my welcome. Did you not read the whole Marathon Crash report? I could only sucker two people to ride with me. And they were two people I had never ridden with before. They won't be back!

I'm thinking about it as well. Actually, I've never done this ride and would really like to, however, need to work on the schedule. My two girls (neither of whom play soccer) may have games that day.

Would love to do my first century on an event like this, but I'm home with the little one on weekends until June.

It would be good training for the AIDS Lifecycle that I'm doing May 31 - June 6 (545 miles). Might be the last LONG ride before tapering? Need to see finances. Lots of expenses related to the AIDS ride. Still need to buy my plane ticket and reserve my hotel room.

I'm pretty sure @HunkerDown and @eja_bottecchia will be riding this event.

If anyone is on the fence, last years ride was a ton of fun and the folks that put this ride on know a thing or two about how to do it right.

I have decided I am IN. This will give me my last big ride before the AIDS Lifecycle which starts 5/31. Then I will start tapering down.

OK, my sailing adventure is not happening until June. So there's the Wildflower on 4/25, Conejo on 5/9, also the Ojai Valley Century on 5/30 that some folks have highly recommended, and then - the Ride Around the Bear on 6/6.

So many rides, so little time. I can't do Wildflower, have a conflict that day. Conejo's looking good. Ojai? Maybe. Bear? I don't know if I will be ready for that this year. I have started doing our club training rides for it, but that's still a heckuva ride, and I fly out on 6/8 to go sailing.

I'll make a decision on Conejo this weekend.

Taking a cue from the PhotoJoe playbook - just showing the slightest bit of interest means you're INKED.

That is indeed a lot of great rides. I hope you can make it.

OCW... obsessive compulsive weirdos?

I'm still checking. Fortunately, I don't think this ride sells out.

Saved the page for next year. We had to cancel plans for May and June charity rides this year. Good luck everyone and thanks for pointing out a cool looking ride that I'd love to try next year!

I'm out. I was trying to move a commitment, but I just can't. It would affect to many people.

It's not what it sounds like but that's how it works.

It'll be so sad not to see your backside dwindling into the distance on PCH...

Pity though, I was looking forward to trying to keep up. Good luck with the horse show.

Speaking of keeping up... do you think I could get by with a 11-26 and a compact for the Rock Store? That's just 20 min, I think it might be tolerable. What say you? Alternates include 11-28 and of course 11-32, although I think that's definitely over kill.
