OK, I did a century Sunday as the last part of a charity ride. Myself and a couple of guys decided to hammer out the ride. 98 miles, 5:26, 18 mph avg. according to my computer. 2100 feet climbing according to altimeter. Total ride time including breaks, around 6 hours. For those who may be familliar w/ the terrain, New London CT to Frammingham, MA. How's that for time?

Washington DC to Boston. We raised money for the Mass memorial which is going to be built at the state house this summer

TOSRV two weeks ago:
Day one: crosswinds. Bad cramping. three guys plus countless hangers-on 5:18
Day two: tailwind for 80 miles. Storms for 20 miles. Lead out by a couple of Cat 3's. 4:33 riding time. Blew away my PR. Throw in a couple of stops for a total travel time of about 5:15.

My centuries were flat, flat, flat with a few rollers at mile 60 - 80 (miles 20 -40 on day two). Add some hills to the course and our speed would have dropped like a rock. With your 2100 feet of climbing, that's a really good time.

it isn't bad. Was it windy?

I've ridden flat century loop 102.3mi/~2-3000' solo in 5:05 (plus 20min break to buy water it was hot), usually it takes more (wind, climbing etc). For some centuries 10hr total is great time.

The buddy of mine Cat 2 racer did one in 3:40 but they had a paceline going at 28mph. Basically if you can ride flattish/no wind century under 5hr you're in damn good shape.
