Any body doing the Strawberry Century?

Is anybody doing the Strawberry Century in Lebanon? I just sent off the paperwork this morning, so I guess I am committed,or maybe should be. Anyway, here is a link for those that are interested. http://www.santiamspokes.org/strawberry.html

This looks like a fun ride. Have you done it before?
My girlfriend and I ran a 5:45:00 on our first century a few weeks ago, looking for our next ride.

I didnt see any numbers on the website, any idea how many people participate?

Last year there were around 700 riders for all the distances, with around 200 doing the century.

I may do this ride, they changed the century route and it's much nicer than the previous one. The club that puts it on does a great job providing support to riders, so it should make for a nice day.

At 20 bucks that is totally a doable ride- wonder if I can pass for a kid and get it down to 10

You could always do the 13 mile family ride 8 times and that would only cost you $10

I and 2 or 3 others from Newport should be there if the weather holds. Hope to be on the road by 8:30.

Sorry your allergies acted up, Shifty.
