    After the last century following a bunch of roadies on my MTB? Nothing.
    After my last 68 mile slow leisurely ride with my gf? My right knee is now f***ed. Hmm...

    Usually my neck and shoulders get stiff after 80 or 90 miles. Legs are usually good.
    Always try your most moderate.

    Feet hurt, and nether regions too. That's about it.

    I rode a century last Saturday and the only things that hurts are my quads which were a little stiff. I rode 40 easy miles on Sunday and 25 spinning miles tonight to loosen them up. I feel good to go now!

    my last century was in mild weather conditions and i left the bike as fresh as when i started. if the weather is too hot then its the nipples....definitely the nipples.
    I have enough words to get me into trouble, but not enough to get me out of trouble.

    Really, I don't feel that badly..I say definitely the feet.Sorry all, so many body parts to hurt and the poll only allows for four entries...The butt is a big runner up...Sometimes, that can hurt a little too.

    If anything at all for me its muscles, usually because I've been
    cramping (dehydrated? total glycogen depletion?).
    other than that maybe a sore butt.

    I haven't ridden 100 miles in a day in a long time, but after several metric centuries this year, I can definitely say - BUTT.

    I hammered out 110 this weekend and my calfs are a bit sore. Other then that I am hungry as a horse. I would say during the ride my neck starts bugging me about the 90 mark.

    same here, except it's my left knee. i've been trying forever to fine tune my bike so i can ride without knee pain, but it's been bothering me ever since the NYC century tour.

    other than knee pain - just a little soreness in my back, neck, and hands. but nothing too bad.

    I rode my first century this year and I felt great. On the other hand, I've ridden metrics and have felt aches all over. I attribute the difference to the weather conditions and how well I was nourished and hydrated.

    I generally feel great after my rides any length. Its after I wake up that I can tell how much I pushed a ride/ stayed hydrated from a little muscel discomfort.

    Butt, legs, feet, neck....pretty much in that order if it's really hot (in the upper 90's or above) when I do it.

    Maybe its the shorts..Saddle.?.Part of the reason I did not enter butt, it rarely hurts.Just did not occur to enter it,since I can't recall it being anywhere near the major problem in a long time...On long rides, I wear my best shorts with the best chamois...Not cheap shorts on long rides.
    .Something wrong with the butt not hurting? Too much padding?
    Inserts don't seem to relieve the hot points all that much..Maybe I do not pull up enough to relieve some of the pressure from the pad of the feet.?
    Anyone think demanding perfect spinning helps foot pain?

    After a long ride, I tend to have a low level constant ache throughout my lower body. During a long ride my feet suffer the most, especially my right foot.

    Probably just my backside after that distance. I used to get back problems on my old bike, but I've changed my position to be more upright and that's no longer a problem. Maybe my thighs might hurt a little on the later climbs, but overall 162km or whatever it is really doesn't bother me that much.

    Arms definitely. I have only gotten to 70 miles so far, but the arms were on fire, especially the forearms. It felt like I couldn't hold onto the handlebars any longer. I know its a positional thing, but still, I can't quite figure out how to fix it.
