1st supported century?(2 posts)

I will be doing my first supported century on Sun. I was wondering if there is anything about etiquette I should know. I have done a few solo centuries for MTB training, but I have only done 1 short 30 mile group ride in the past. I have had my road bike for 10 months and have 4300 miles on it so far, but no group ride experience. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I did my first century in September and had never been on an organized ride before. I just tried to stay out of the way of the hotshots - they all left early anyway - and tried to behave predictibly, in general. There were about 200 riders, but it spread out pretty fast and actually, I spent most of the ride alone or with one or two other people. I didn't hook up with a group or anything.
