I don't have any experience with the vendor. Looking at the routes it reminds me of my epiphany the second year of Phil's fondo: "I can (and do) ride all this stuff on my own and make better route choices, I'm paying an insubstantial amount for a few nutrition/hydration stops, a small bit of swag, a decent meal, and the security of having Velofix on call. Not worth it."

We all have our own calculus for "worth it," though, and I definitely understand the security blanket aspect, especially to provide peace of mind to your SO. FWIW, there aren't that many points that are a long way from cellular coverage.

Their routes look decent, though of course I would make other (read: better) choices.

Sending you & @lavi a PM.
