I wouldn’t consider this a race…more like a ride. Some people take it serious, but most are out for a ride with their friends or riding group. I used it as a get-a-way with the family. The event was well organized, good support, and I had a good time. There are many different distances. I used it as a training session with the 56 mile ride. Good post race and entertainment going on throughout the weekend. Love the event…an “A”.
