    century ride?

    Anyone know of any good century rides at the end of this month. (10/28-10/29) I have some vacation time coming and would like to get one more long, warm ride in before winter sets in. I know that there is one in fl. "intracoastal waterway century" Anyone done this one? Any input would be appreciated.

    I did the Intercoastal Waterway Century some years back. It is well supported and a good ride. My recollection of it is sort of hazy because I stuck with the fast group and they were moving along. It was pretty easy because the group was big and the draft was amazing. But I did not see much scenery.

    Here are some in Arizona if you want to travel to the desert. October November is perfect riding in that area.

    A google on Florida (or Arizona) bicycle clubs will give you a list of same and check of their websites will turn up other centuries. IIRC the Tallahassee area club has a fall century, but don't know when.
    Not quite as warm, the Smoky Mountain Wheelmen out of Knoxville have a late Oct century. A good bit hillier terrain than Florida however and temps could be in the 40s, or not.

    My century and other long distance rides are usually solo - not for everyone but I set the schedule and plan the route.

    It's called the Spaghetti 100 and we had it last week. It was a glorious day.
