We did that ride a few weeks back. It is a good one, but very easy to get confused about which road is the right one to be on where they cross over. We rode part of it "backwards" I think…. Have fun!

You may find a little ice on some of it as well. We saw some and that was when it was much warmer than it is now so take care.

Thanks for the heads up.

Looks like we keep left, both out and in for the crossovers. I had my suspicions that ice may be a feature on some of the forever shaded areas. I'll pack my blow torch.

b00002420_21i5lp_20140207_104356e.jpg Good route.

Did the whole course with a few missed turns we went back for but no ice and no dramas.

@saibot did the whole thing in Spring kit, HARDMAN. I started too strong, excited to be let outside again, and was glad to finish when we did.

good stuff indeed, was a bit chilly around the hips especially in the beginning. My "sock" worked like a charm though! :)
