    Good luck on your first century, and remember, enjoy it. They only get easier from here on out.

    We are registered for the flat 100 option on our tandem. It is a great ride that we have done for the last few years.

    I'll do it if I can find a registration to buy. I've done the flat century twice, and really enjoyed it.

    If anyone would like any company, let me know. I'm doing the hilly century. Not shooting for any fast time. I'm averaging 14 mph (solo) on my long rides. Last long ride was yesterday, 81 miles and 4500 ft of climbing.

    Well, got'er done. Did the hilly century. I underestimated the climb up Old Creek Road. I had a 39x27 and wish I had smaller. I saw a few guys actually walking it. Super windy on the climb, too; made the decent interesting. It got really hot around noon, with not much of a sea breeze. Great scenery, though.

    I did the flat century, which was my first. The final stretch from Morro Bay back to Cuesta was a bit warm, I was probably a bottle or two behind in my water intake ... beautiful ride though.
