Will definately have several different groups to ride with varying desires for speed. Recommend having a GPS and download the tracks that Scotty will send out beforehand. Its a fun ride for sure.

Hope I can make it again this year. The last two years have been epic! It may be a last minute decision on my part. Depends on if I still have the 690 by then.
