The C arrows that were spray painted on the ground to indicate the route through the streets for the NYC century more than 3 weeks ago are still visible. My gf and I rode around brooklyn and through queens following the arrows on the ground today cause I wanted to show her what my century was like, we did about 60 miles total.

Anyone wanna try to repeat it next weekend w/o the rest stops?

Nah you won't be slowing me down, I take my mtb on trips like that. When I was with the roadies I averaged something like 16.5 mph. I averaged 11.7mph with my gf today.

We can make stops for lunch and stuff but what I mean is the designated stops that were provided won't be there (of course).

Do you know where I could find a map or general overview of that route?
I would like to check it out while the marks are still visible when I've got some time.
