There are reasons not to participate, such as the glaring sun and heat that will undoubtedly be a part of that day (I swear, we get the hottest day of summer during the VdM ride), and I have to actually prep myself pretty quickly to do the ride (I have choices though as there is a 33, 51, 67, or 100 mile ride - heads up y'all - I will not be doing the 100 mile, regardless).
And so, my friends (and those who just read here, but certainly have no desire to be my friend), I am once again looking for advice. What would you do? Do you think it makes sense to just do the ride and see how it goes? After all, I did have fun at one point doing the ride... or, would you sit it out and look for something else to challenge you on the bike, and avoid the chaos and possibility of cranky folks on two wheels? Thoughts, ideas, opinions are all certainly welcomed.
