Hilly Hundred Bancroft Ontario Canada
Completed my second ever centery today. The Hilly Hundred is billed as the toughest century in Ontario.
In 160 kilometers there were 2700 meters (8858 feet) of climbing (the profile is here).
Although the time was slower than i had hoped for (7hrs 33mins), i was about in the middle of the pack, finishing quite a bit ahead of a lot of young guys. we also had 25km/hr headwinds for about 40km. All in all a great and very scenic ride, i would recommend it to anyone within driving distance. They also had 60km, 80km, and 240km distances. i did the 80 last year but at this point am not remotley contemplating the 240 next year.
