(TBD), Saint Paul, MN
With Jennifer's blessing I will be posting 6 century rides next season, one each for the months of May through October (with a possible ride in April if the weather cooperates). Currently the idea is to hold these on the second Saturday of each month, as these dates seem to have the least amount of conflicts with large, organized rides (most notably the MS150), and it will be easy to remember (I'm thinking of calling this "The Second Saturday Century Series"). These will be unsupported rides for experienced riders only, intended for riders who have always wanted to do a century (and honestly feel they can do it), but haven't had the opportunity, or for those who simply want to get some miles in.
Currently I only have two, and possibly three, routes planned, so I am open to any and all suggestions with regards to other possible routes (in other words, you can have a "say" in where these will occur!). If you would be so kind, please shoot me an email through Meetup with your Google Maps, Map My Ride, and/or other possible route ideas, but keep in mind that other than one ride (a possible "out and back" on the Lake Wobegone Trail), I am going to try to keep these rides "metro-based", as not too many people want to drive far to ride.
I will post more details and dates as soon as I have things a bit more nailed down, but for now, just know that these rides will be available, that I could use some help with route ideas, and that you've been given "fair warning" (no excuses for not being in "mid-season form" come next May)!
Have a great winter everyone, and I'll see you in the Spring!
