    We did it and it was great ride. Very well supported with Police at just about all intersections waving you through! It started out in the heart of Richmond riding over potholes, railroad tracks and cobblestones! I took three five minute breaks for water bottle refills so total time was 6 hours and 45 minutes...riding time was 6:31! HIghly reccomend this ride, looking forward to next year. BTW, I do NOT draft (don't trust strangers) so happy with my time...for a 58 year old cigar smoking, beer drinking grandfather!
