I received a brochure for this ride while attending another ride in Illinois last month and was thinking of doing it.

Has anyone else ever done this ride before ... or planning on doing it this year? I was hoping to get in a century ride in July, and this is about the only one that I can fit into my schedule.

It's a bit of a drive from Milwaukee, but it sounds like it could be alot of fun.

I just got invited last night by my young niece to attend a Brewers baseball game that same day. She received free tickets for getting on the honor roll, so I can't disappoint her. I guess I'll have to put that ride on my schedule for next year.

Have an extra slice of watermelon for me !!!

SJCzar: Did you ride it?

I had not heard about this ride before last week and actually rode the 100 mile route. It was a blast (I'm sore today), great rest stops (5 for the 100 miles), nice route and a beautiful day to boot. I will do it again next year.

No, I wasn't able to make it. I went to a baseball game instead. I'll keep it in mind for next year. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.
