I have been participating in this ride since the onset and have been particularly enamored with it since the Adirondack club took it over, a great ride and great organization. I have only missed 3 times. Signed up a few months ago, hope others will enjoy it as well. The Ididaride usually offers a great party at the end, the only ride like this that gives you a beer at the end. I usually give my beer ticket away as I can't drink a beer that close to the end of a long ride.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.
