I pootle along & enjoy the view when I'm riding by myself. I'm doing that more now. My wife hates that. Probably need an EPRIB or Spot.
and you have a pipe and slippers and a blanket to keep ya knees warm when ya stop.

Didn't know that the cherman was coming up for this? Will be sure to pack a thermos, and slippers, pipe & blanket are a given.

Aside from the 1st foresty portion the MMMMM is a GPS / route sheet ride, so everyone just gets on with it & the ride spreads out. Also tends to attract more committed riders. It's potentially too cold / far for total noobs.
