C&V Century Challenge

Here's the concept: To do a C&V Century, get to 100 by adding the age of the bike to the number of miles ridden in a day. I haven't done this yet but came dangerously close a week ago when I rode 71 miles on my 1987 Schwinn Prelude (23 years old... 23 + 71 = 94... not quite there). Real centuries (100 miles) don't count unless the bike is classic/vintage (according to the jury of this board's posters).

Have you done a C&V Century?
