I'm in! I was planning on doing 65 but maybe I'll feel a little crazy Sunday morning and go for the full 100.
Are there any bibs available for purchase since registration is closed? If not, would you guys mind if I tag along with the group? Was thinking about doing the 50 mile ride.
There are a couple of people selling them on the ride page's forum: http://www.backroadscentury.org/resources/forum/forum?id=5
That had to have been one of the sweetest courses around, endless very long rolling straightaways through picturesque Piedmont.
A nitwit marred my ride at mile 90, swerving without warning in front of me; I swerved in turn to avoid, unluckily while in aerobars, crashing hard. Nothing broken, but four stitches on the elbow.
(I'm counting 90 clocks plus a crash as a century. :) )
Props to Hillary P for volunteering all over the course the day after a 40-mile ultramarathon. (Rumor is she's canning her bid for a century ride, to RUN the distance.)
So sorry to hear about the crash Ed! I'm glad you're doing ok! Good riding with you for bits of it.
Sorry about the accident Ed. Heal quickly!!
