Holland Hundred, anyone?

I've just about decided to make the Holland (MI) Hundred on July 19 my first century attempt. Any other 50+ers doing it? It'd be nice to hook up with a partner or three.

I'm bringing my non-riding wife to make a long weekend of it; on the day I'm riding she can shop etc. Unless I can convince her to follow me as my personal support vehicle.

I only live 45 minutes from Holland but I'll be in DC during that time. I am registered for the Apple Cider Century in Three Oaks MI the last part of Sep.

Pulled up the route on MotionBased. Not too much climbing. Looks like good times.

Mike, you have to quit all that traveling, it's taking away from your riding time to much.

Better not let your riding wife find out you're taking your non-riding wife with you.

Not to worry. I can't afford a riding wife too!

I'm thinking about either the Apple Cider or the Horizontal Hundred in Findlay in September.
