Last Saturday I did ride the Hotter'n Hell Hundred, which is a 102 mile ride at Wichita Falls, Texas. The main reason I am writing about this ride is the number of riders. The report was that 10,205 riders were counted going past the start line. During the 102 miles there were people all around. Most of my rides I eventually find myself either alone or only with a couple of friends. How many riders do you normally find on an organized century?
