    22nd Annual Intracoastal Waterway Century

    This ride is put on by the Space Coast Freewheelers. I have never done this one before so I signed up for the 63 mile ride. This sounds like a good ride. I have ridden in this area several years ago. Anyone going? Take a look.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Would you define this ride as FLAT??

    Wind could definitely be a factor.

    You are correct wind will most likely be a big factor.

    Congratulations on your first century. It was a great ride but I had to bail after 42 miles due to a very bad headache. My daughter and i will do this ride again next year.
