Does it make sense for me to try to get in a century during the Neils on Wheels Pittsburgh to Washington ride? One advantage to riding a century on such a route is it's car-free, since it's a trail. The disadvantage is that the PA side is gravel and crushed limestone from McKeesport to Cumberland MD, and from Cumberland to Washington it's gravel and dirt. Also, both Neil and I are going to be carrying camping gear, in my case in a trailer. And the PA side is on a slight upgrade.
So, is this a workable idea, or not? I'd love to do a second century, and I'd like to see my riding buddy become a century cyclist.
