All around NOVA. No clue where we ended up or how I got out of there but I do know apparently there was a 20ish mile loop that I went around twice. Was NOT marked well and when I was all alone on what was supposed to be the route there was no one to back up the "oops, you blinked and missed the single yellow arrow on the road" issues. I ended up doing the metric version, I think. Oh well, I did four hours of bike riding in any case.
What would you do differently?:

Perhaps drive the route first? Maybe not. It's a bike ride for fun so what the hell, it was fun :)

Event comments:

The road markings were small to none. On the big turns there were cops volunteers there but that was only at a couple spots.
