yup, did it last year, good time, well organized, its not exactly flat but its pretty close. Last year there was a strong headwind between 60-70 miles, made me wish I had aero bars. If you are going to sign up, do it early it will fill up.

I rode the Century last year, great ride, well organized, enthusiasic support crew, passing thru some nice country-side. As mentioned above, it may be TFCE but it's not a ride along the beach. This year, I'm trying to coax/coach my wife into riding the 50miler with me. And you should enter early as it will fill up. Have fun!
Thanks for the input.....mlester

It is a good century, except for a stretch of about 6-8 miles in/around/through New Bedford. That section stinks, but the rest of the route is excellent. Rest stops were rather bare-bones: PBJ, fruit, water, that's about it, but there are many Cumby's along the way for sports drink (and beef jerky!) if you need more. Well run, overall.
As the other posters noted, the ride is limited to 1600 riders and I think it is almost half full already.
ENJOY!!
Isn't 100 miles ten laps around Rhode Island?? (nm)Cima Coppi
