Haven't done the ride as its only in its 2nd year, but I have done the climbs and ridden in the area.

While the ride/climbs will be challenging, its not one of the "toughest" fondo's in the region.

If you like a little R&R in the mountains, I'd recommend trying to score a cabin in Douthat State Park. These cabins are very nice!

Also, a buddy of mine is putting on a Gran Fondo outside of Harrisonburg: "Jeremiah Bishop's Alpine Loop Gran Fondo"...it may actually rival the Garrett County Diabolical Double in toughness - if you're looking for something a little more intense and closer to DC!

thanks for the Info, Andy..

actually, i am alittle 'hesistant' about the event as i never done a fondo and the elevation climb of 2200ft in 8 miles stretch seems to be very challenging.
