    The weather was very wet in the morning, but I enjoyed it just the same, as I was dressed and prepared for the rain. Some of the roads were terribly worn out, but I’ve come to accept that just about everywhere now, unfortunately. The scenery was awesome, very little traffic! The food at the rest stops was wholesome and plentiful. The support was awesome

    I wanna go back and do this route on a nice, SUNNY day! The rain really spoiled this ride. Not the coordinators fault! The rolling hills the first 15 were like silk! I could only do the 45 even though I planned for the Century. Way too much rain for me. As a beginner rider, it posed too many issues. Thankfully, I live near enough so I can get those hills another day.

    This was my first year doing this ride (goal is to do one cycing event per month). I can say that I really enjoy it, definitely much better than the SLO gran fondo. Good courses, good support, what else can you ask for? will definitely do again

    Had a great time on the ride. The available routes were challenging. Great sag support along with plenty of food at the rest stops. The route was well marked and the route sheet was easy to understand. The volunteers who helped support the ride starting from the spaghetti feed to the BBQ at the end of the ride were very much appreciated.

    Could use more law enforcement presents especially on HWY 58 and La Panza Rd.
    La Panza Rd traffic was dangerous and one could tell the locals did not like cyclist !
    I was riding on the fog line and almost got ran off the road by a impatient motorist who refused to slow down or move over !

    This was my first century so its hard for me to compair against other rides however my first century was lots of fun and a very rewarding experience. I was very impressed with their SAG and repair support (thank goodness I didnt need it). The food was perfect. THey provided a virtual smorgasbord of cycling appropriate foods at every rest stop. I didnt like coming back to the starting point for the 50 mile rest stop but I loved the diversity of the terrain. The first 1/2 of the ride was in the Paso Robles vineyards which was beautiful. My only complaint was that about 20+ miles were on roads that hadnt been repaved in 20 years. They were horrible and jarring. The 2nd half of the ride proved to have much better road conditions and even more breathtakingly beautiful. Overall the sceenery was spectacular, support was really good. Will repeat next year.
