Ok, I just did it and now I"m wondering if I'm nutz or what. I had a great ride today (44 mi with the big guns, A group) and they asked about the Kids In Distress (KID) Ft Lauderdale Ride next week. I just had to sign up for the century ride.
I've done a few metrics since I started in Feb, and I felt pretty good, but I got a bit concerned when when of the A team members who is VERY good at mentoring new people (read: he doesn't pull your chain, he's a straight shooter) said "riding a metric and riding a real century are two very different things. That last 40 miles or so are a real bear!
Am I in over my head? Should I go with the sure thing and drop to a metric or push for the Century? I'm signed up for the Miami MS150 in May so I need to be ready for a real test.
Your thoughts please!
BTW, I'll be 62 in Jan.
