I'm now in my early 50's and am riding more than ever before. I started riding an old Schwinn Varsity too many years ago but mostly leasurly mileage. 3 summers ago I started prepping for our local Multiple Sclerosis bike to the Bay that starts near Toledo and finishes in a lake Erie port town, Port clinton. This event is VERY well run and runs 2 days at 75 miles each. I'm now hooked ride about 100 miles a week in season and am planning my first century in 2 weeks.
I'm riding a Giant OCR2 and it sure seems to agree with my road riding and paved trails. I'm about to order a new Brooks saddle (B17) and wonder if anyone has comments for a leather newbie.
Also any basic "must do's" for the upcoming century with regard to advance prep and day of ride?
