The folks at the Bicyclery are good people and definetely the price is right for the event.
BUT here is the Caveat.
This event is more like a notch in a bed post.
Quite honest there is nothing fun about it.
Pan Flat, not much to see, always exposed to the sun.
Go if you want but keep all that stuff in mind.
If you truly want an epic, come ride the CFiTT. Sure its not Supported, but at least there is singletrack terrain change and sights and tree cover.
again, not taking a poo poo on your choice, I just believe in full disclosure.
