anyone else riding this year??
We have gone for the past 5 or 6 years but after last years fiasco... Way to many dangerous crashes !! There are now to many riders at the start with to many different skill levels it has become way to dangerous for my liking so we will not be going this year. Shame really cuz I used to look forward to it.
last year was my first time, and I'd generally agree, there were a lot of inexperienced riders who weren't comfortable in groups of that size. If its the same this year, it'll likely be my last year doing it.
unfortunate because it was an otherwise enjoyable ride last year.
I somehow got a spot on one of the corporate teams.
just realized this is like two weeks away. hopefully i repeat my performance of last year or slightly better it.
I actually just noticed they changed the route from previous runnings.
2017 Route... they trimmed that left side leg up to the air force memorial out, that was where I saw most of the accidents.
That downhill into the hard right was treacherous.
Your links aren't working for me but I'll miss the climb. It wasn't much of a hill but it did help sort us out.
i think eliminating the climb helped this be a bit less of a cluster F this year.
I tired out at 9am and stopped with 6 laps in the bag. If i had eaten breakfast I probably could have managed 2-3 more.

there's only one tagged to my bib number (851). too lazy to go through thousands of others to find myself otherwise.
How do I know that's really you without the infamous trailer behind your bike Q?
You can see the trailer hitch peeking out from under my left shoe.
Oh yeah...I see it. Ok, it's you.
