I rode in this race last year with Shayne and some of her friends- we had a good time, despite how COLD it was! I did the "Virgin" route last year, and I'm not quite sure I'm up for the "Harder! Faster!" route, so I think I'll be a virgin again (?) this year. Any lovely Grease Rag WTFs planning on coming out? (Heh, "coming out"...)
From E.G. of the Queer Bike Gang, organizer of CdSGII:
#1. Routes: Virgin comes out around 14 miles and H!F! around 24. Depending on what route you take, of course! Prepare to be dazzled and take in the queer scenery!
