You're just about 100%, in fact you are 100% on the stuff within your control.
Again thank you for organizing a great trip. It has become an annual end of summer tradition for me. A great test of my biking and a great way to meet other cyclist.
I like the whole thing... the group experience is important, the riding challenge is important, the support is vital, cooking together is fun, going to a restaurant together after a long ride is wonderful, and the scenery and the villages we pass through are delightful.
When the eight days were over I was glad that I had done all of the climbs, seen all the great wildlife, and met all of the great people whom I hope to keep in touch with.
