I like events that are on a course that would be harder to do solo. With event rest stops where there are few stores or sources of water.

And the route needs to be interesting. I don't want to pay to ride a boring route.

I can see why some charity events require a sizeable fund raising. One of the local $50 mass start rides changed to a multiple hundreds of dollars requirement. Their rider count dropped dramatically, but they raised more money.

Avoiding an event:

I won't do ones that don't post a GPS route link. They tend to have "best kept secret route" or other over the top vague descriptions of the ride. I need more details. Hiding the route doesn't work after the first year, anyway. People post their GPS recordings by name.
