2017 Blue Bonnet Express - Anyone going?

I'm participating in the Blue Bonnet Express on April 2, 2017. I was wondering if anyone from here is also participating.
This will be my first organized ride, I thought it would be cool to meet someone before and then be able to ^5 them at the end.
(I'm attempting the 75 mile portion)

Would anyone like to meet up before the ride?
To say hello, put a face to a forum name, exchange numbers, create joint bank accounts, or get married; you know, the usual.

Not terrible ones. The longer routes have more but that area isn't exactly hill country. It starts out pretty flat but progresses towards some rollers.

I definitely wouldn't call it hilly. It's actually nice ride, as long as the winds stay away. Last year, the headwind for that last portion was brutal.
