We love the ride, the organizers, the volunteers, everything about the ride but please, please, please consider more seriously rerouting the ride and taking out Lucas Drive in Clover Hollow!

Thanks for everything! Great ride. Very organized, and very beautiful and challenging. I know Lucas is a rough section, but the climbing in that little section back there, and the roughness of the road reminds me of a spring classic…thanks for keeping it in. Hope to join you next year, and many years to come.

Another terrific ride in the books. Fabulous volunteers and a challenging ride through a beautiful part of the world. The organization of this ride is second to none when it comes to course support and marking.

Best volunteers , wonderful course,GREAT riders.Lou Heslip saved my butt in Maggie’s Valley. The road was well shaded/dark and I was happily tucked behind the big man (Lou) when he screamed, ” Hole!” and I missed the hole by a hair. I thought I was going down. I told Lou my three “B’s thank him “bike ,butt and back.” Broke my heart to see him down badly hurt 20 miles later . I pray for him in confidence that he will pass me again next year.

Any chance that you could post the bib number / waves. It is unclear if these are “raw” times or adjusted times. I’d appreciate seeing the times broken down by wave, or at least being able to make the adjustment myself.

My thanks to the countless volunteers who made this ride such a fine event for my son and I: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! But for the person who originally came up with the idea of ending a century ride at the top of the “backside”, I’d like to simply say: “I hate you” 🙂 And I agree that Lucas Drive should be taken out of the route (or re-paved): it is too rough, too dark, and too fast.

Hey Riders! I finally got around to putting up my photos from MoM 2012. Almost all of my shots are from the start. Feel free to take and use any pics of yourself or friends. I took them for you!
