Nice job! Looks like it was a picturesque but rather desolate ride.

Awesome Stephen!

I'm not worthy. You did a Century on your Worksman SS. I have one of those and it's a blast to ride, but the idea of popping out 100 miles on it has never ever occured to me. I did just score some neat rear baskets at a swap meet though.

Looks like a great area. Ther are so many places we can ride here if we're willing to make a weekend of it and explore a bit. Of course, today we could have pretended we were in Canada..........

Dude, you did that on a Worksman? You da MAN! I am speechless...

Care to share your ride time?
How about food and water intake along the way.

Congratulations. This was quite an accomplishment.

You should send a link to Worksman. I can't believe that there have been many centuries done on their bikes.

Good job on the ride, way to stretch out the last couple of miles. Nice report and photos. I think this is my favorite sentence in the report "You know, the kind of dog you'd keep around if you lived down the road from the prison."

Off-topic It sure seems the Florida and Texas riders have come alive lately with their ride reports. Maybe, I"m just noticing it more lately or they are the only one's with the weather to ride. Ok, Mr Beanz in Cali is still giving his reports, but he does so in summer too.

That looks like a truly beautiful ride, and you picked a good time of the year to do it. How many of us Yankees could say we even contemplated a century ride in December? No I, rest assured.

An unsupported century is the best ride, isn't it? You don't feel like you have to hold a pace or follow a particular route. If something interests you, a detour is not only feasible, it's pretty much required! Congratulations!
