What a fantastic event. The ride was well organized. There were plenty of stops for water, etc. The weather was about perfect. The company was great. The accomodations at Case De Denning were wonderful. In fact, a big shout out and thanks for letting us crash at your place!! I have to say that the gear change was extremely helpful...I wasn't hurting nearly as bad on the big climb this weekend. I am looking forward to doing it again next year.
