There are TWO Wildflower Centuries.
There is the one sponsored by the San Luis Obispo bike club. The other, on the following day, is sponsored by the Chico, California, bike club.
I've ridden both. In fact, a decade ago, a friend and I rode both
Wildflower centuries on the same weekend.
We called our madness the "Wildflower Double Century." I don't think too many other people, if anyone, have duplicated the feat (which I wrote about here: http://www.davewyman.net/wildflowerdoublecentury.htm
Hardest part of doing the two rides: the drive from Creston, California, to Chico, about 350 after completing the first century.
While I like both rides, I'm a huge fan of the Chico version of the Wildflower, and I'm going to make the long trek up there from my home in Los Angeles agin this year, with my brother and a few friends (and yes, I'll skip the prior day's ride).
