    Anybody know of some good century rides in the last part of July or early august? I know it can get pretty hot out but there's gotta be something on the monterey peninsula or thereabouts, right?

    Isnt that around the time of the Santa Cruz Mt Challenge and the Marin Century? I think it is.

    Bookmark that site. Check out the Western States Ride Calendar. There's also the Holstein Hundred, and on August 19 the much loved Tour of Napa Valley.

    You're welcome. If you liked that one, I also have BikeCal. This even includes local rides.

    Here's another list of California centuries.

    The Marin Century is on Saturday, August 4th, and there are six different routes, including a 100-miler that goes up Mt. Tam, a 100-miler with less climbing, a 200K, and a double-century.

    This is a popular one, with something like 2000 people last year. Also, the weather was great.
