So what is it that makes a century ride "special"?
Personally, I can go off to ride a 60 or a 70 or even an 80-miler and it's a pretty casual thing, but when I set off to "do a Century" it seems like an EVENT of some sort.
Is it psychological? Or do you cross some sort of a line at 96.5 miles that makes it different, somehow?
And for our British cousins, does a Metric Century have the same psychological impact, or is it just another 60+ mile ride?
Rainy day here, time on my hands...
