Am I missing something (I have in the past)? There's zero information on the route on BikeReg and the link to the event's website is broken. I do know it's $95 though.

Planning on it. I've done the B2VT the past couple years but this year I'm thinking I'll go for the less expensive option. I've heard it's a pretty tough route.

I'm a maybe. Would like to know more on the route, too. Curious about tire requirements for this, too. I have a cx bike I could use

I noticed that too KT. I'm assuming they'll get the site working again and post the route details.

Glad there's some interest generally in the ride. I'm planning on riding.

I could be into this too. Like Briana, I've done the B2VT several times and want something different (and less $$$!) to put on the calendar.

Bump. Looks like a few MRCers have registered. Anybody done this ride before? Suggestions on tires? Road or cross shoes/pedals? PM or email if you're headed up and looking for ride company.

I would go with cross/gravel for both shoes and tires.

Thanks Brian. I was leaning in that direction, so this is helpful.
