I might go...I guess last year there was a large BF contingent and the general opinion was that the route was 'meh'. Too much city streets, and calling it a Tour of Poway was a joke. You're only in Poway for a grand total of about 6 miles.

But, it is a century, and it is local, and it should be good training for PIE miles...so mehbee.

I found the route to be "meh" at best. There was lots of construction, too. Of course, things could be different this year...

I'll be doing it with a couple of tri friends. The full century fits perfectly in their half-ironman training schedules, as it's 3 weeks out from Soma Half Ironman they are doing.

The construction was mainly around SR-56 and I-15 near the end.

Reading back on last year's thread, there have been complains about the food/water issue, but I forgot what the exact problem is.

I'm still deciding too, and will most likely go since it's local.

I wasn't thrilled about the ride last year, but there's a decent chance I'll end up doing this ride anyway.

Lat year, they were doing some striping which caused some congestion. I thought it was near the beginning though.

They ran out of water at one of the stops.

Maybe, just to hang out with cool people. It's close enough to ride to the start.

Don't feel obligated. It's been covered.

Good! I need to get your wheel back to you!

I'm registered for the century along with my tri friend Michelle (from this thread).

Edit: that means Voltman should be showing up...
