I am asking because I tried it twice and both times I got dropped after just a couple of laps. Is it really a very fast ride or am I so slow? How does it compare to an actual race? Thanks for any info.

Its a loop of 2.5 with no intersection. The ride is ten laps and it usually last about 50 minutes so the average speed must be more than 25 mph.

In the same "island" there is a series of time trials during the year.

It is a race pace training ride. Many top pros and lots of hi cat racers. Dont feel bad I usually get droped after a few laps also, But the second or third group back is more to my speed. Have not done it lately but friends ride it every thur.
The riders look very hard core...Bruno S

Yesterday there was even one guy on mountain bike with out slicks. He was riding with the pack at more than 30 mph. He "only" lasted about 5 laps though. I also saw one guy moving to the front riding over the sand!!

Cool! glad to see this is still going on. I used to ride those laps over 10 years ago when the coach rode along on his motorbike yelling instructions.

What about rollerbladers and vehicles? I've seen a lot of casual
riders and rollerbladers there on weekends.
