Granfondo Ottawa?

Has anyone ridden in this event in the past year or two?

I'm interested in trying out new rides and routes, but I've heard that the Granfondo Ottawa has suffered from some fairly serious organizational issues. I found some posts about the 2012 and 2014 rides that weren't too flattering. Did anyone ride it in 2015? If so, how did you find it?

Everything I've read and heard about it places it on my no do list.

If you're looking for a Granfondo in that part of Ontario you might want to check out the 1000 Islands Granfondo in Kingston. It's the second weekend of September. 2016 will be the second annual. I was talking with one of the organizers this week and their website for this year's event should be live soon.
