    Since the Eau Claire Century is closer I'll be doing that. Only 65 miles though.

    I wanted to do the Wright, but my stupid family get-together is that day

    I have no idea what that means now but I am guessing I will find out soon!

    I am half way nervous for the ride as its my first century, but oh well! Heard its pretty hilly and we dont have many hills here in KC... haha

    I think I'll be riding the Eau Claire Century. Not sure if I'll actually do the full course though. 65 sounds a little bit better.

    I'm signed up for the Wright Stuff Century.

    Here's a link to a picture of me at last year's ride...I'm pulling the group along.

    If you are riding a standard (53/39) crankset you will want a 12/27 cassette for some of the hills

    Well how did everyone do? There was less wind this year for the Eau Claire ride and with generous breaks it took me four and a half hours to do the 65 miler. Hit 42.7 mph on the longest, steepest downhill. I had a little soreness in the tendons either side of my knees yesterday, but feeling good today after an 18 mile ride this morning.

    Had a good time at the WSC, but alas, I did not run into Chris from KC. We had a bit of an easterly breeze making the last half a bit tougher. Also couldn't really hitch up with any groups of similar-pace cyclists, so I was solo most of the way.

    Here's my Garmin data:
