    Thanks for starting a "my first century" thread that didn't ask for advice on how to train for it when it was still 9mo away. Nice to see someone just do it, and not over think it.

    I'm 300W +/-. I'm ~10W higher on a road bike than the recumbents, I believe because I can use more muscles (not limited to the seated position), though it could be due to drivetrain/seat flex losses...

    Bummer. Just uploaded last years Fall ride and it didn't match the entire length, though did match a bunch of the segments. 12h45m moving, 15h+ total ... can't be stopped nearly that long this year.
