    For any of you who weren't able to register the first time around, as of this coming Wednesday they are re-opening registration for another 100 riders. I really like this century - the route is very nice. Mostly gentle rolling hills on fairly empty roads.

    Are you doing the full century, cc_rider?

    I have a possible conflict that weekend, so I didn't sign up ahead of time. Won't know my availability until the day before.
    I'll need to skip since they are not taking walk-ins.

    cc_rider: Sorry you were locked out. The alternate ride going that day - variations on "Three Sheetz," riding out of Frederick - is a worthy alternative.

    I'll be volunteering at two of the rest stops at the BRC this year: Burwell-Morgan Mill in the morning, and White Post Restorations in the afternoon. To those who go, I'll see you there!

    Got my bike out of the shop yesterday, just in time for the ride. Looking forward to it. This will be my fourth. Weather looks to be beautiful!

    Oh, this is how dopey I am. I knew the ride was in two separate 50-mile loops, but it didn't occur to me that I could dump my arm warmers and full-finger gloves at the halfway point, and I could get extra bars and gels at the same time, so I ended up carrying too much stuff on the first loop. This is a great opportunity to start the ride WARM and LIGHTLY LOADED

    Looks like it should be in the mid 50's at the start around 7 AM. For me that will be sufficient to go just in my regular shorts and jersey. You may be warm towards the end of the first fifty if you end up taking warmers and stuff. I'm really happy though that the winds are supposed to be really light - I hate riding when it's windy!
    Ride On.

    That is so cool! I don't have any stats but yours look beastly considering the terrain. Averaging over 17mph with all those hills is pretty impressive. Good work!

    Thanks man. If you have money burning a hole in your pocket I recommend getting one of the Garmin devices - I have the Garmin 500. It's definitely worth it - I never ride without the thing and I have data for all my rides going back to March of 2008.
    Ride On.

    Not as detailed as yours, but:

    Rode the metric, as I am -still- recovering from IT band issues. Longest knee pain-free ride in 18 months, max speed 37.4 mph, 16.3 mph average over 65 miles, 3:58 active time. Max HR 181, ave 143. 2280 feet of climbing, max grade of 13.8%.

    Pretty ride on a gorgeous day. My first time on this ride, but I'll be back, hopefully for the "Imperial" Century.
