It was raining before bicyclists starting off, but their passion for the challenge was not dampened. It was more difficult to ride in the rain. The most difficult section was in the first half from the starting line up to the first sign-in point, during which many riders fell on the slippery slope, but they took care of each other and no one gave up the cycling due to falling.
