I'm going on my first century ride this Saturday morning (weather permitting!) A friend of mine who is preparing for an Ironman triathlon is going with me (or should I say... I'm going with him )
Is there anything I should know that is special about a century ride, other than it's really long? Physically? Mentally? What should I take along?
I will be taking some extra water, some Gatorade mix to mix up on our stops, some bananas and power bars, spare tubes, tools, patch kit and CO2 air, cell phone and money.
Thoughts for a rookie century rider?
