I am considering the idea of organizing a century near LA. 100% mountains in the Angeles National Forest behind Pasadena. Going only on the low traffic and good condition roads.

I would like to know what are the main points/difficulties/how much time it takes for organizing a century.
- volunteers: I would ask people on campus (Caltech), the bike club from JPL, if not enough contact people from USC.
- how many volunteers are needed ? For the Angeles Crest century in september, I think planet ultra limits the number of participants to 80. I would think around 15 volunteers ? Let's see, if there are 5 rest stops, 2 persons/rest stop + a few sag vehicles...
- cars and gas. How do you work out the policy for gas ?
- food and drinks: where does the money come from, the 35$ registration fee, sponsors, bike shops around ?
- money: what is the budget ? to me, it looks like most of the money is spent on food/water/gas, am I right ?
- tables, tents. I guess I can get stuff from the Y at
school.
- do you subscribe a special insurance, or is the waiver that people have to sign enough ?
- where to advertise ? how much does it cost to advertise ?
- what did I forget ?

Thanks for any info,

Pierre

from Claxton, GA. I think the folks who run that have a how-to manual.
