I did my first metric century this weekend at the Primavera Century.
I just wanted to say thanks to the organizers and volunteers it was an extremely well organized ride. The rest stops were well staffed with a wide variety of various snacks, goodies & drinks. The locations were well choosen to give riders a break.
The route was EXTREMELY well marked. Every turn over the ENTIRE course was marked with a small colored arrow & P. Any place where the route was potentially confusing also had small A-frame signs directing riders. There were SAG cars clearly marked and frequently patrolling the route.
The 100k route went through a lot of scenic areas, with minimal traffic. Plenty of great views of the Sunol valley and the oak hills.
After the ride, you turned in your wrist band and collected a goodie bag with a voucher to use at one of four gourmet food trucks.
Overall, a great experience!
