First Century

This past summer I rode my first cenutry, solo, in the northern woods of Wisconsin. It was really hilly. Probably would have been more fun if I had done it with someone else, but I felt a huge sense of accomplishment when I finished it. Can't wait for this summer.

Northern WI is an awesome place to ride...lots of nice rollers and trees blocking the winds. I did a nice ride up near Phelps last year.

Doing a century with someone else can be tough if you aren't at the same level. The first few are best on your own in my opinion.

Where did you ride?
