    Mile High 100

    Anyone know anything about this ride? It's around Lake Almanor. Has anyone riden it? Any idea of support, elevation gain, etc?

    I was thinking of this one but it may be too far to drive in time I have available...

    Yeah, I've seen their site. No route maps or really much info on the rides. I'm not familiar enough with the area to know if this means 2000 feet of climbing, 5000 feet, or 10,000, etc. I assume that it is relatively flat, but I just wanted to make sure.

    I think the mid range ride goes around the lake basin area and is relatively flat... that's what I'll do if I go...

    I think I am going to shoot for the 108 miler. I am doing my first century in 3 weeks (Lodi Sunrise) which is relatively flat (total climbing of 2500 feet). I am pretty sure I can handle that. I am a little concerned about stuff in the 5,000 + range.

    I'm doing Lodi as well, but the metric... where did you get the total climbing for the century??? I see they talk about one climb of about 2000 feet but nothing about the total ....

    Uh....I don't remember where I saw 2,500. Pretty sure I saw that somewhere, but now I don't know.

    well, if you bump back into it, can ya tell me where you found it? I don't think I'm ready for 100 regardless, but maybe...

    It's a beautiful area. I am there a few times a year for work but have never ridden around the lake on a bike. Lots of rolling hills around the lake but there are some steep roads.

    I can't find it now. Here is a pretty decent description of the ride though: http://photos1.blogger.com/x/blogger/5269/171/1600/722289/Sunrise-Century-2003-Page-2.jpg

    Not sure if I am ready for a century either. I rode 70 miles yesterday and I didn't die, which is probably a good sign. The ride had maybe 800 feet of climbing (600 of it all in one climb), but it was at 5,000 feet so hopefully.....

    I'm sure you'll be just fine If you can do 70, you can do 100

    We go up there several times each year. The Greenville/Indian Valley area is very flat. The roads around the lake have some rollers but not to technical. You can get into some climbing very quickly. There are several other century and other rides in that area. http://www.indianvalley.net/centuries.html http://www.summersolsticecentury.org/

    It is beautiful up there.

    I've been eyeing that Quincy weekend ride for quite a while... thanks for the reminder to check it out for this year!

    I believe there is about 5000ft of climbing. My dad is 70 and says its too much for him, but he really doesnt like climbing. I dont think its too bad. He knows the route and I can probably figure it out if I look at a map. Ill call him later and refresh my memory.

    I really want to. Like I said my parents drive sag support, and it gives me a chance to go up and see them. Its a beautiful area and I just dont get up there enough. Jada really likes it to. We go fishing in the river right down the street from mom's house.

    If you get the route please share. We are thinking of the Memorial Day Greenville Ride. It is a tradition for a bunch of us to go up to a friends house not far from there and go Hang gliding that weekend. I think a nice century might be a fun thing to add. We sure do love it up there.

    Ok, just talked to my Dad. He said its not much in the way of climbing at all. He said maybe 2000ft. He said its more of a scenic ride. It does venture through Indian Valley. However he did mention that the elevation there is 4500ft, so that will make it a bit more challenging.

    I live in Reno, so my rides are generally in the 4,000-6,000 foot range anyway. If Lodi goes well I will probably be there for this ride.

    YEAH!!!!!! Okay, I feel better knowing you're going and hopefully Dauphin will be there... at least someone can make sure I make it in okay or come and get me if I don't No Sean, I do not think I'm going to have a problem... I'm talking strictly mechanical, serious illness etc.
