Looks like we will be doing the NSA/OCE Century this Sunday.MB1

Starting just south of Manassas Virginia. It is pretty flat and quite rural. I'll confirm it later this week. Mileage options of about 55, 70 and 105 miles.

BTW NSA=No shifting allowed.
OCE=Or coasting either.

Miss M and I have usually run it as a track bike century we will probably do it on our Single Speeds this time.

In spite of the name everyone and every kind of bike is welcome.

Finished before dark, got rained on for the last hour. Perfect weather otherwise.

... my wife's out of town until that evening, so now's my chance! A rare weekend with no honey-dos!

How many base miles can I get in during the rest of the week? I've been getting in 60-80 mpw commuting, but rarely getting in a long ride -- the occasional 27-miler felt pretty good though.

Hmmm ... I gotta see how you're gonna OCE without your fixies! Used to be I could at least count on catching you on the downhills.
We have done quite a few fixte centuries.MB1

The farthest we have on the SSs is maybe 80 miles. Should be fun.
