    Sierra Century anyone?

    I was just reading about this one sponsored by the Sacramento Wheelmen on June 2nd. I think this is the first year they have done it in Calaveras County. Anyone planning on riding this one?

    I am also doing it. I liked it last year except for the end in full sun. This year has a new venue in a very beautiful area. The town of Murphy's is well know for its caves.

    I hope they have better luck with the new location. Last year they were shut out of El Dorado County and didn't have the famous Slug Gulch climb. And there was the fellow that went under the wheels of a logging trailer...

    Yes, but not their fault. It is one of the best organized centuries I have been to. The motorcycle cops were all over the ride constantly going back and forth to make sure cars drove slow and carefully. The rest stops were very well attended. May be too many riders, and sure too many irresponsible riders. I think they reduced the maximum number of riders this year.

    WOW, that doesn't sound good! I got the scoop from the local LBS on the routes... they are supposed to be really nice... I'm doing the 50 but apparently the grades on that route might be a tad steeper than those on the 100... in any event, its gorgeous over there!

    Are you riding this year?
