    Organized Century Rides in the SE

    We are shopping for our first century ride. We would like to enter an organized ride that has support on it.

    Please suggest a century ride in the southeast that is for a newbie to century rides. I would prefer the first one to not be slanted for mountain goaters. Mostly flat would be great.

    Thanks.

    I did the Palm Beach PAL Ride last year and it was excellent. The 2010 event was in Mar.

    Cruisin in the Country century in Claxton, GA is a well organized, flat century. The website is down though, so I'm not sure of the date. Maybe email the chamber of commerce.

    I don't know if you have the time or where exactly you are looking, but there is the Natchez Trace Century this weekend (4/10/10) in Jackson, MS. The route takes you along a nice reservoir down the natchez trace parkway, which is pretty bike friendly to begin with. Well supported and really flat, IMO.

    I would recommend the MS Ride from St. Augustine to Daytona and back. The route is pretty flat and the decision to turn it into a century on the first day comes late in the ride, so you can bail if you decide it's not for you. On top of that, the extra miles for the century rote roll thru Tomoka State Park, which is a scenic ride. It sounds like the location is in your wheelhouse.
