    Blood, sweat, and tears/bike psychos century...

    Has anyone ridden either one of these two rides? Would the bike psychos century be a good choice for a first century ride?

    I think yes. I did 70 miles at last year' psychos - and probably do century there this year - they said last 25 mile loop is the most scenic.

    The ride is relatively flat and goes along the river. For the first century it's a good ride.

    My first century was North Shore 2 years ago - I think psychos ride has better roads.

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    Did blood sweat and gears two years ago, One of the finest supported rides I have ever done! Be prepared to climb 13,510 ft in 110 miles, and snake mountain is everything it is advertized to be(make MT Mitchell seem like a central Ohio mole hill). I highly recommend it!
