    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.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.
