Comments:

Holy hills. This was probably one of the toughest things I've ever done. The hills were relentless at times. I had to walk one section of the second to last hill for about 5 minutes as I had nothing in my legs. I was able to hop back on and finish the last hill up to the state park. I thought the ride was organized with great SAG stops. I've never sweated so much on a bike ride before. My eyes were stinging a lot of the time which made the downhills fun when you could barely see.

I lucked out and was able to finish and head out of town before the storm came in. My buddy and I heard the warning to take cover on the radio as we were driving back to Chicago. I hope that everybody made it ok.
What would you do differently?:

Ride more hills.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched some after finishing, packed up the bikes and hit the picnic for some food.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Huge hills.

Event comments:

Overall, I thought it was an excellent ride. I would for sure sign up again for it next year. The only reason it isn't a 5 in my book is that I need to drive up the night before and stay in a hotel.

I must've finished real close to you. I was at the car for about 30-40 min before that rolled in.  That WAS hard. WOW!!  I've never ridden hills like that.  VERY tough, but also very cool to say we did it!

 

Congratulations!!
