I'm riding in the Solvang Century tomorrow. It's my first time to do a an organized ride of this sort. Are there organized stops where I can refill on water? If there are organized stops, is anything provided to eat?

I'm assuming that I need to start with all of the water and food that I'll need to complete the ride. Is this correct?

Thanks.

They'll have what people generally refer to as SAG stops at intervals along the ride. You'll be able to refill your bottles there, eat oranges, bananas, sometimes M&Ms, chex mix, and the like. Facilities also...

Hope you have a nice ride. Pace yourself, start on time, and find some folks to ride with if possible.
Thanks for the infolaffeaux

Enjoy the ride and enjoy what is, in my opinion, the best place to ride in the country. There's a reason why USPS has had several training camps there, not only is the weather perfect but the roads are exceptional and quite, but if you live there you already know that. I bought my first road bike there from the guy who used to manage the Danish Inn Lodge right in downtown Solvang.

I actually live about 4 hours north in the SF Bay Area. I'm driving down tonight. I'm sure there's less cars than here, although if you're willing to climb a few thousand feet you can get away from the cars in the hills.
