The food was so bad I thought I was eating ashes.I can drive down the morning of so the only expense for me is registration. I did it in 2013 and was hoping for an improved experience if I were to go again. Not into bad road markings and burnt food at the end. Hell I don't even care about the food a just a good ride with clear indicators and closed /semi closed road intersections would be great. GFNY is a great example of how to mark the course and makes roads safe for the riders. Battenkill is another great example.
