Most centuries have rest stops about every 20-30 miles. The more you ride long distances, the less you need them. My long rides are usually 80-110 miles and I'll stop twice for about 5-10 minutes to get water and go to the bathroom. It's normal for your body to acclimate to longer distances and need less time resting. Just don't push it too much, or you may not eat enough, get good at eating on the bike and you can go even longer.
