    I am actually bummed to miss this (it is the day after Keystone Gravel and we will be traveling back from PA). From what I have ridden of the course, it is going to be tough. LOTS of elevation change and some interesting gravel sections!

    Neat to see an ebike category! Reading the website, I don't think my particular ebike is likely to be the ideal fit for this kind of event, vs. say an e-mtn bike.
    I've never tried that much elevation gain, so I have no idea how my battery would hold up under such climbing; my heavy use of WOD and MVT is not likely to be remotely adequate for comparison, nor preparation!!
