2018 SURVEY COMMENTS
|Except for the initial storm, I quite enjoyed the ride, rain and all. Stopped to take pictures several times, which I probably would not have done on a clear day with lots of riders.|
|The volunteers were excellent. Road markings were very clear. The selection and quantity of snacks available at the rest stops is among the best. The rolling rest stops are a brilliant idea.|
|As a cyclist, to see wonderful things and experience beautiful environments one must occasionally ride on roads with surfaces that are not ideal. Bumpy roads can lead to great adventures and this ride is a great adventure.|
|nice job considering the weather threw a curve ball at the riders|
|Special thanks to Brooke for helping me out with my flat tire in the rain. It was a miserable day but that made completing the 103 mile course that much more meaningful.|
|Great job considering all the challenges you had with the weather!|
