Found this ride today.  The 82 miler looks like it will be a good training day for IMTX.

Supposedly pretty hilly. Does anyone have any experience with this ride?

Not the 82mi but 2 years ago I did the 40 something ride.  I am from the area so love the ride.  It is surprisingly hilly and the roads can be very rough and pot-holey at times.  If I lived closer I would do this ride every year.

Here's a quote, obviously finely hand-crafted by a marketing person, about the 82 mile route:  "Enjoy about 5600 descending feet along this route."

Heh.  It's a loop course.  They hope people don't think about the 5600 ascending feet along the route.   Wink

Edited to add:  I downloaded the .tcx file into Garmin Training Center and it looks like there are a few climbs at 10% grade or over!  FUN!!

 Here's the elevation profile.....
