Cream City Century & Wright Stuff Century

It's not too early to think about your August and September riding schedule.

I know in years past this has been a relatively popular ride for the BFNICers. Maybe you want to divest yourself of your new racing obsession for a pleasant century instead! This was the first century I did ever and it is a great route with just the right amount of hills and some decent scenery.

Who's interested? I think Smokin' Miles should attempt it on her new fixie!

Waterford Union High School - 100 Field Drive
Waterford, Wisconsin

Mileage isn't posted, but I know there is a metric, century, and probably a 30 miler.

Wright Stuff Century
http://bombaybicycle.org/events/wsc/

This is my club's ride. For your Madison locals, there was also a call put out for volunteers (sign up through Active.com). You can also run a day shift and ride after. Volunteer, and you get to ride for free! This one features some of your favorite roads of the DLD and HHH.

Course Opens: 7:30 AM

The Cream City Cycle Century is a GREAT century for anyone who has never done a whole century.

It goes through ever-changing scenery, it's not too hilly, five rest stops (at least the old map I have shows five), and they feed riders at the end.

Yup, century start is 7-8am.

If you run into someone on a Raleigh Marathon (modernized), that's me, say hi!

How different is CCC from Hurmon Hundred? I think I did 50-60 milers on both couple of years ago and trying to decide which one to choose for century this Sunday...

OK, how freaky is this? I think I rode with you all day today in the CCC! I did not make the connection while we were riding - never crossed my mind!

If it was you - great riding - thanks for the pulls. As I said during the ride you are an animal!

Oh, smokin the Cream City is great. Lots of long stretches with no stops, scenery, a couple of smallish hills and great rest stops with real food and sandwiches. I still think you could have done CC.

I know you want to do WSC - it's in hill country! You love that.
