There will be at least a dozen different ride groups every day......maybe upwards of 20-25 groups. Of course, anyone is welcome to form a little private ride between buddies and take off.....or do a solo ride. (We do like Solo Riders to speak with Big_John, so that someone knows where you are going and when you will be back.....and Solo Riders should have a SPOT.)

Big John - good stuff (as usual). Mileage of the loop is critical for me. It sucks being the guy with the least range... I think I can squeeze 70 miles out of my bike.
Regarding registering, is the "donation" the only fees for this event?
