Doing a sub-5 hour century has long been on my bicycling bucket list. But with all the hills around here in NorCal, all local the centuries have too much climbing for me to consider even trying to do them in under 5 hours.
Recently I came across this organized century - http://3fcentury.com/ near Chico. Advertised as Flat, Fast and Fun. It's 100 miles with only 500 ft of elevation! Now that's something even this old body can handle. I'm thinking of signing up, but since it looks like a pretty new ride, I thought I would check in here to see if anyone has experience with it.
Anyone done this ride? How are the roads? I don't care too much about food at rest stops, just need water and some snacks.
While I'm at it, anyone want to join me in a sub-5 century paceline? I'll be on this recumbent -
