There was one year where I was really interested in doing this event & got to talking to work colleagues & friends all to sign up with me & make a day of it. Then about couple of months before the event I stumbled upon the previous year's route & took an early Saturday morning off to ride & get a feel for it, and I really didn't like it. :(
In the following weeks a few I knew who I spoke to about it signed up but I didn't.
Maybe the social thing is the big drawcard, but I've never been good with people.
Just a bike & a place to ride.

It used to sell out in minutes but I've seen a few emails trying to flog the last few tickets in the last week.

Choked at the start.
Once it spread out, lots of fun.
Some clever costumes and bike creations.
Same ol' same ol.
