Metric century that is. I went to Sylacauca, AL for a organized ride this morning and rode their 64.5 mile metric century. At the very beginning the two guys I was with took off on a break away and I got caught in a slower group so I didn't see them again but I ended up riding with a couple of guys and a gal from Birmingham, AL. I had never ridden in an organized ride much less a century so I had some learning to do as far as the group etiquette goes but I picked that up quickly and we had a very nice long ride. I was hoping to average somewhere around 16-17 mph but we ended up with just under 18 at 17.9 mph. Don't let anyone tell you that just because you're 60 something years old that you can't ride a bike because every one of the others in my group were 58+. I will be doing more endurance rides, my next goal is the 100 mile century.
