In case you do get some interest from some on here, this may not be road bike friendly route.  It is using several of the dirt roads we used to use for the dug bettle ride years ago.  It also goes through the dirt Croom road.  A CX or MTB bike may be more appropriate.  Anyone here done this ride?

Totally agreed. While I have never done the ride myself, there are some pictures as well as discussion of using a road bike for this ride on the Facebook page.

I will be riding my CX bike, mainly because it's my only bike and probably most appropriate for the course.

this on a road bike wouldn't be fun, & that was after heavy rains:
