12/31 Hincapie Century - anyone doing this one?

I've been slacking off pretty bad for the past month or so and was hoping this might motivate me to get some miles in during December and end/start the year with a good ride. Is anyone else doing this one - in Santa Clarita - or have you done it (the same route anyway) before (how bad is the climbing...)?

Planning on it. Not sure if I'm going for my first century or stick with the 60.

' Just looked at the courses...I've ridden most of the 60 mile course at various times and it is pretty much a typical Metric with 3000 ft of climbing. Some long grades but nothing too steep... a good ride with average work required.
The additional 40 mile section for the century I have not ridden but have ridden some areas on the other side of the ridge it tops out at. I suspect that section with challenge anyone that may have struggled on the metric section but should not hurt a seasoned Century rider. Either way it should be a pretty fun ride...it may be a bit cold at the start.

Can't ride it this year. Too close to a chemo treatment. Next year, though. It's in my back yard!

Thanks - 60 is probably within reach - maybe I'll sign up for 100 and see how it goes...
