Yeah, first time.

Looks fun - but I find it funny that it says "not a race" in big, bold letters, but the website is encinitasrace.com --

Does look like a nice route, though.

hmm....at the bottom of the page it says:

"....we sold out last year...."

so I assumed that it was not a new event -- and since I had not
heard of it before, I thought to ask here...

It also says: "JOIN US for the first year of an annual cycling classic!"

Creative marketing license I suppose.

Evidently so. It has me all confoozed. "First year" and "annual classic" -- huh.

Is there a better way to spend a birthday than 100 miles on a bike?

Of course not, but Lee and I may have a ride in the works. Of course, I think that it came up when we were both two very large Red Bull and vodka's into the night...but YES...I think we may plan something!

I'm signed up for the century. If I get tired at mile 48 or mile 85, I can bail out and just ride to my house.

How much climbing?

Per the google maps on the site it looks over 10,000ft. of climbing but per the Elevation chart it looks around 5,000ft.

Which one seems more realistic?
