Anyone doing it or thinking of going? The weather looks questionable with a good chance of rain. I am wondering what the roads are like there. Would rain make a hard course that much worse?

I rode it last weekend. It's a fun event. They had announced 2016 would be the last ever, but seem to be walking that back saying they'll now be back in 2017. Attendance is lower and they've eliminated the cheering volunteers although you still get the great moto support along the way with police doing an excellent job at the intersections. Weather turned out to be great on Saturday after a brief rain in the parking lot. They improved the route a little. I can't think of a better way to ride Devil's Kitchen.

When the sun is out the way it was the views from the route can be incredible, especially around mile 40.
