Six Weekends........ Six Centuries
I just realized that after I complete the century I have planned next weekend I'll have done 6 centuries in a row. I'm including the one yesterday as a Century even though it was only 90 miles but it did have 8300 ft of climbing......author's priviledge! It felt like one for sure. It was a smaller group but wonderful weather, amazing views and well supported. A combination of some long climbs and long downhills.The downhills went much faster than the climbs???????
The one next weekend is again in the Mountains of NC but only has 4000 ft of climbing so it is a very fast one. It's one of those centuries where I've managed to average 20+ mph and come in under 5 hours in the past. It's just a matter of riding wheels and staying with the lead group.
Of the 5 I've done so far:
Longest distance-115 miles
Longest time-7hr 14 mins
Most climbing-11,000 ft
Total Climbing-30,000+ ft
Bikes ridden-3 on the Prince and 2 on the 5900 (next week will be the Prince)
My personal record is 7 in a row, I think. Not sure I want to try and break that one........but who knows.
