Century for New Year’s Resolution

So I’ve heard some people say they want to ride a century as their New Years Resolution. To ride a century you need two things – a good breakfast and a bicycle. Here are a few routes you can follow to cross the achievement off your list.  They can be picked up anywhere and make great weekend rides. I have to thank the members of the HRRT for letting me publish their routes.

2012 Hill Challenge By Jason Stilson

100 Miles of Hill By Andy Reeds (more like 110 jeez)

  1. Good collection, Dan. People reading this might benefit from knowing a couple of additional things. First, those rides you posted are of several different lengths, and of significantly varying levels of difficulty. Choose a ride that fits your fitness and interests and you’ll have a good ride. Second, HRRT, MHCC, and others in the area mount fully supported distance rides throughout the season. Especially if it’s your first, it’s helpful and fun to participate in one of these organized rides.

    Johns right, make sure you have some support if it’s your first distance ride. If you would like any help choosing a ride fit for you, feel free to contact me personally and I will gladly help you assess your challenge.
