A group of about 20 riders or so are heading up to Clermont, FL west of Orlando. It is the site of the annual "Horrible Hundred" to be held in Nov. It features a century with 4 k of climb, not a lot by most but pretty impressive for flat FLA. The highest "peak" is 400' Sugarloaf Mountain, so the climb is mostly rollers.
We are going up to do a 65 mi A ride and a 45 Mi B ride. I'm going to try to hang on to the A ride as I want to do Sugarloaf which is not on the 45 mi route. Also, if I'm driving 3 hrs to a ride, I don't want to be done in 2.5 hrs.
If I can handle the 65 mi ride, I'll feel much better about the 100 mi ride in Nov. If I suffer too much, I'll know to limit myself to the 70 mi route in Nov.
We're leaving at 5 AM so it's off for a nice big bowl of pasta and a good nights rest.
