I've seen a bit of feedback on various centuries/organized rides. I'm aiming to complete my first century this year (if I can get my rear wheel problems fixed in time to train a bit more) at the Tour of Palm Springs. Right now, I can ride 60-70 miles no problem (in fact did the Duarte to Baldy 63-miler last weekend--very hard: sore for 3 days) and should be okay for ToPS. I used to do centuries about 9-10 years ago, took time off and then have only been on the bike since August last year. I'm thinking Stagecoach is too soon for me.
Do any of you have experience riding it? What's your review?
I'm also planning on taking one of my sons (probably the 11-year old) to do the 25 or 55 miler. What do y'all think?
