How Many Ride the Whole Route?

I know there’s no good way to track this, but does anybody (particularly experienced riders) have any idea how many people ride the whole route versus the various shorter versions (partial weeks, sag days, whatever)?

Sit back and relax, Son, and try to keep up with us. Pay attention to your elders. You might learn something!

When you reach the exalted status of “senior citizen,” I hope you are physically able to do what we “old people” have already done before you.

I’m off my soapbox now. I shall wrestle with you no more.

See you along the I-O-Way next year.
