Udder Century (Larry)

McHenry Bike Club Century Invitational

http://www.mchenrybicycleclub.org/MCBC%20Udder.htm

This is a well organized ride with good rest stops, 32, 50, 62, 75, 100 mile routes with a lunch afterwards.

The start is fairly easy to find if you go out I90. The event is well attended so there will be lots of cars and you will park in a field.

We will meet outside the main registration building. Meet up at 7:30 and I want to be rolling by 7:45. It is a busy place so give yourself time to arrive, get parked and set up your bike.

Early register at the above web site.

Best for road bikes but you can use any type of bike as it is all paved road.

    Mike, Joe & I made the 100. With all the separate arrivals, anyone else? MCBC said they had a number if SAG pickups due to exhaustion from the wind.

      62.... Flirted with the 75 in my mind for a little while.... But my longest ride this year was only 52.5.... And I've been fighting an upper chest/head cold for a month and a half.... Probably do the 70 at the Ramble this weekend....

      Marc, I was just worried about the wind/hill combo heading north. Longest ride was 44 mi so I thought the 50 would've been a piece of cake, hills and all. For some reason, just wasn't feeling it that day. :(

    Well I made the hundred. Errr 105 according to nav & bike computer. The wind killed me. My previous longest was 40mi, so, happy to finish. Great to meet everyone!

      Great job Mike. Between CBC and Lake Cty group, it appears you, Joe, Donna Nitz's husband and me completed the 100!

    I've been recovering steadily throughout the day, could probably be back at it tomorrow, but going to give it another day off. Glad I bounced back fairly quickly....Ragbrai will be interesting 7 days in a row

    Got there at 6:10. Well organized, good SAG support, watermelon and oranges were great.

    Well marked routes. Nice lunch afterwards. only complaint was the long line at check-in, so only 4 stars instead of 5. Weather could have been better, but can't control that! Great group of LCBG riders on this ride.

    if anyone wants to start earlier, I was planning on being there and ready to ride no later than 7 am. If anyone else wants an earlier start, let me know. Sorry Larry I don't mean to hi-jack your ride, but I need to get back home sooner than later. :]

    I signed up, planning to ride 100. never ridden even close to that far, but have been training a lot for RAGBRAI.

    I'm planning to start around 7 or earlier, anyone wanna meet up? I'm typically 14-15mph pace for 30mi, but thats on gravel trail, never ridden road.

    May 24, 2013

    • Larry G

      Also, Mike.... I've done four RAGBRAIs.... So if you have any questions, feel free to ask....

      May 25, 2013

    • Marc R.

      Mike, I'm planning on being there about 6a. They serve a pre-ride breakfast before you start out. I'll be wearing the jersey you see in my photo on this site.

    Will decide Tuesday night whether I'll take off work for this. Right now, predicting rain all weekend. Hope that changes.
