Well, I am crazy, but I am riding the 109 mile route. My first charity ride, and I am really excited!

Anyone here doing it?

I wish

I'm going to be in Philadelphia for a conference at the time. My boyfriend rode the 60-whatever-mile route last year and had a blast. He's hoping to ride again this year but he hasn't decided which route.

Good luck and have fun!

Yup, I'm in. There are 4 of us going over.

I have done it a number of times. Not this year. It's a really good first century as there's not much climbing. The wind can get tough but if you ride in a pack that makes it a lot easier.

Have fun!

I'm going to ride in El Tour for the first time (last year would have been my first opportunity, but I had other obligations). I'm signed up for the 109 miles.

I'm doing a weekly training with University Medical Center and Carmichael Training Systems.

I've ridden about 80% of the course over the last year (not in one day).

Ok, girls, look for me on a titanium recumbent, with a bright green tailsok (hopefully I will have it installed by then!)

Glad to hear it's not too hilly. I am working the "9 mile hill" up here in Scottsdale and getting a really good workout. My partner is coming and is not sure if she should volunteer, or be available to bring me food at one of the stops, though I should be able to pack everything in my bike bag.
