Good luck and enjoy! My 525 was my favorite bike of all time...sold it for a 690. 690 is great, but not as nimble. That RFS will not let you down.

BTW...in my opinion the 690 with Knobbies is a perfect bike for this ride. Single track section was challenging for the 690, but doable without any issues.
