    The rides start at 0900, 0930, and 1000 depending on length. No way am I going to get there 0800 for pictures :) Maybe 0845. Maybe.

    What length are people thinking of riding? This year's routes are 18, 49, and 64 miles. I miss the 30-ish mile option they had in previous years :(

    It looks like they've changed the routes this year. The options are 18, 49 or 64 miles. That's too bad - I thought the 32 mile length was just about right for a leisurely cycling + beer + food day.
