Merry Christmas to all.
Here is a Classic and Vintage route for a: Century Ride for The Centuries
Nazareth to Bethlehem, 102 Miles w/ just under 6,000 feet of climbing.

Be sure to heed the last instruction on the Cue Sheet:

"No Room at Inn. Turn left to stable. Warm straw in manger."
Christmas Century of Centuries
