A friend is trying to talk my into Foxy's Fall Century at the end of October. I like the idea, but I'm wondering if I should do the metric or if I could be ready for a full century by then.
My longest ride to date was last weekend - 47 miles with 2500ft of climbing. This would be 100 miles with only 2000 ft of climbing. A friend says that it's all about how much time I can spend in the saddle. I could always go for the metric option - I could probably do a metric now and be ok. But I'm not sure if I could be ready to do 100 miles by 10/20.
What say you, brain trust?
