Great Century Ride in PA this Sunday.KG 361

Harrisburg Bicycle club's 3 creek century is this Sunday, the 21st. Good support, well marked roads, and good food at the end. What more could you ask for? Did I mention a really nice route, too=). One nasty climb rigfht after the 2nd stop, but mostly rollers through VERY lightly travelled roads. Here's the link:http://www.harrisburgbicycleclub.org/
It's posted on the "rides" board, too, but not many people check that out =(

They have a PA Dutch (German) specialty at the end-chicken corn soup. It makes the ride worth it =) I've only done the ride once and that was the metric option. I do ride on most of the roads they use and I can't emphasize (sp?) enough how uncrowded the roads are around here.
