I'm thinking about doing another Century & I wanted some input regarding ones that you've done. I did "Flatest Century in the East" in Rhode Island and that was great. I'm just wondering about trying something new that will give me something to focus my training on.

Also, does anyone know which Century actually holds the title as
"The Flatest Century in the East"? The TFCE only hold the name, which they had first & they're sticking with it. Thanks!

The Bloomin' Metric is a fantastic ride, but it is not flat. No huge climbs, but lots of rollers that wind in and out of beautiful treed lanes. They get a big turnout. It is a lot of fun with generally "sound cyclists". Pun intended :O)

The COVAC is a nice ride too. If you want tough then the "Great River Ride" in Mass. is a hard one with 8000' of climbing and usually tough weather too.

Third saturday in August has the Mad River Century in central Vermont. This is the best organized and well run event I have ever seen. Start is in Waitsfield Vermont with a Route 100 jam fest, ends with a great BBQ. Cost is about $35 going to a local charity. No killer hills with the route within scienic river valleys. Great folks, miles of smiles too. Please leave obnoid attitude at home.
obnoid ... I gotta look that one up! (nm)MrDan
