Before attempting to ride a century, ensure that you are physically prepared for the challenge.  This ride is rated 4B with 4 category 4 climbs and lots of roller. You must be ready to fix some minor mechanical issues, especially a flat.  As always riding out in the beautiful countryside means there is a chance we might encounter some dogs.  Some are friendly, some are true Mad Dogs.  So, please vigilant!!
