Peach and Harvest Centuries?

So, who's thinking or planning on doing these rides for 2009?

I've set the goal of riding one, if not both, of them. Since they are in late September and early October, I have plenty of time to train for long distance event rides, and the temps will certainly be cool enough that I wouldn't have to worry about heat stroke!

Any links to the rides? I might be interested. The fall brevet series (for me) is over in early September and I'll need some rides to fill out my schedule before the rainy season gets into full swing.

I rode both last season, both very enjoyable. More hills on the Peach, but a very beautiful ride. Harvest is a great ride to, it skirts the Portland area urban growth boundary, so mostly country riding. The back side on the full century is beautiful country around Forest Grove. Weather can be a factor on the Harvest, but last year was a nice day.
