When I started cycling years ago, and when I came back to it more recently, riding organized centuries was a good way to get more into "serious" cycling. Finishing my first century seemed like such a big acheivement. In a way it is- 99.99% of the population couldn't do it.

Now that I'm faster I still do some. Sometimes "social" centuries with some like-minded racer/fast friends where we go kind of fast in between stopping to eat. Or the difficult climbing centuries like the KOM series in So Cal or the Death Ride.
