No where near 103. (2 a week? why?) I'll do a handful of organized centuries this year, but my big accomplishment was last weekend. 507 miles in 4 days. Each day was over 115 miles, with 140 on the last day. It was the return leg of a business trip, so I even got paid 33 cents per mile for riding. The boss had a strange reaction to the expense report, but I'm sure I spent that much in ice cream cones at every small town I rode through.

At an average cost of say $30 a century you are talking over $3000, but at least you get a lot of t-shirts;-)I would rather pocket the money and put in the miles close to home. I do 5 or 6 a year when friends want to ride, but its more for the fun...

I do at least one century a week, but only about 4 to 6 are actual century events. Just another long ride junkie.
Hmm...At 13 hours per century...mr_spin

Sorry, just rehasing a previous post!

I have a goal this year to ride a century a month, which I have kept up so far. In fact, I've done twice that many, with only four of those being organized centuries.
