Philly Clyde Century Anyone?

I made a commitment last Aug. 24th (date of my 1st century) to complete 2 more w/in 1 year. I have a metric in last month and need to do a full century by the 24th. Anyone interested in doing one with me? It could be an organized one or we could make our own route. I'm not in great shape so I would think 12.5 mph ave. speed or so. I was thinking of Valley Forge to French Creek and back, then the Schuylkill Trail and back with a few more miles to round it out.

Steve

I'll be in Philadelphia (King of Prussia, actually) from the 19th to the 23rd. I have stuff to do on Wednesday-Friday, but no plans at all on Saturday. Not sure if I'll be able to bring my bike with me yet or not, but I'll find out and let you know.

Yep...I'm signed up for Livestrong, and the Covered Bridge Metric the week before. My dance card is pretty full this month, or I'd be glad to join you for a century.

I'd ride it, but I plan to ride the Pine Creek Trail in Wellsboro that weekend. Sorry!
