When I first picked up cycling again, I would rest a few minutes after 10 miles or so. After getting used to doing solo centuries, I can basically ride non-stop (unless you count stopping at a stop sign/light a stop). Of course, I don't like riding and eating energy bars at the same time (sometimes gives me indigestion). So these days when I do a solo century, I typically stop around the 50-mile mark and buy a sandwich at a Subway, Togos or whatever sandwich shop I'm near for about for a 20~30 minute break. Usually for rides of 50 miles or lower, I don't stop at all (unless I see something interesting). Yes, I try to vary the route so it doesn't get so boring from going the same paths all the time.
