About ten minutes, for the rides with ferry. Non-ferry-inclusive rides are (to my knowledge) uncapped.
You don't actually mean ten minutes do you, lol? (Although I wouldn't know, as obviously some rides sell out more quickly than others.) Does the website show how many places are left, as time goes on?
Last year I jumped in early and bought the MSM ticket, not knowing until afterwards that the MSM rides are uncapped.... then regretted not having chosen a ferry option (although going by how tough I found the MSM, I may have needed a fair bit more training to have been able to handle the anticlockwise ride with the headwind all the way and still be riding safely by the end of it!)
Given that I now won't have long to make up my mind before rides start selling out, I'll probably buy a ticket for the 250 km (actually 243 km), and if I decide to keep it to 210 all I'll have lost is the extra cost. (Yes, I know I'll have a lot of work to do on my endurance for that distance, but it's six and a half months off!) It will be good to do a ferry option once at least, even if like many people, I choose to skip the ferry in subsequent years.
