Between Crystal River and Hernando, Florida, 6 miles west of the Withlacoochee Trail
I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO carbon
Welcome to BF.
1. Take your bikes. Can you imagine riding 100 miles on a bike that may or may not fit comfortably?
2. Don't rush thru the ride. Conserve your energy. Ride at a slightly lower speed than your usual ride. Don't pass any rest stops. Stop and relax while eating and drinking and refilling your bottles.
Since he's 60 (and I'm guessing you're over 50 also ) stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the "old farts".
Good luck with the century and have fun.

Definetly bring your own bikes. Describe the type of century you are looking for; hilly, flat or combo, leaving from the city proper or wherever you are staying or are you willing to drive and leave from there?
