Eduardo — I rode the NYC Century last year.  Its a great way to see four of the boroughs but its the slowest century route Ive ever ridden since its often on surface streets with many traffic lights.  Good rest stops.  The $60 (advance registration) included a T-shirt but when I went to pick mine up they said they had run out!

Who's planning on doing what centuries this year? Thinking of doing NYC Century Bike Tour in September.

Did the QuadruPedal Spring Century this past Sunday in Dodgeville, WI. Grabbed some grub and drank in the lovely town of New Glarus, WI before checking in at the hotel in Dodgeville Saturday night. It was a cloudy, cold 57 degrees with 25mph winds on the day of the ride. Brutal headwinds going up those Wisconsin hills. Not many completed the 100 miler but I'm glad I did. Where's my Fukcin parade biotch!

Recently rode with Brian K to Kenosha, WI and was gorgeous! Lots of trails and woodland creatures along the way. Looking forward to this year's Perimeter ride too!

I rode the Insane Terrain Ride in Blue Mounds WI. The scenery was well worth the 125k of hills. The worst part was the 1000 feet of climbing in the last 3.5 miles. Great ride.

I plan to go if I kick this late spring / early summer cold and the weather doesnt look too threatening.

Just did two half centuries on Thursday and Saturday. Take Metra to Libertyville (check for bicycle restrictions both ways - it's a bit complicated). The Des Plaines River trail is very close to the Libertyville station and it takes you to the border. Then it's your choice of county roads to link up to the Oak Leaf Trail that takes you into the center of Milwaukee on the lakefront. About 50-55 miles. For me this was far better than making either way a century ride.
