Did it last year. Damn why did I decide not to do it again this year?
Will probably do it next year. I seriously need the fix of a challenging and fun 14 days on the bike.
Enjoy the ride guys ....... As many have said already, it's not a race. If you treat it as a race you'll either come to grief or you'll miss lots of the little things that make it what it is.
Don't hurry, don't worry, don't forget to smell the flowers (or mud/sand/high country air/snow)
