    The event is called the Air Force Cycling Association challenge, and it's what I'd call a timed ride over an 9 mile loop. One lap within the 3hr and 20 min time limit gets you the bronze; six gets you the gold -- some folks got seven laps in; dunno if anyone got eight. There were 1500 riders or so, and it was a blast. Some technical turns, so you did have to slow down, but it was really reasonable ($45). Plus a pro race and a kids bike race.

    I wish I had found out about that a while back. That would have been just my type of ride!
