A century IS big! I haven't managed to do one yet, and with this summer being mostly triathlons and a big vacation break I don't think I will manage it this year. I'm hoping to get there one year, though!

OMG! You guys are amazing, I feel so welcomed here already. I've been spending some time on catching up on some of the previous posting as suggested; very helpful. Thanks for the advice.

I've found a training plan so it's time to get to it; I'll keep you guys posted on how it's going or not and hopefully I'll be ready by September for that CENTURY; WOW that sounds big!

Right back at ya! I am a bit jealous at the trainer you have, I have a Magtrainer which is a step below yours...however what ever gets us riding, right? I have ridden in two centuries, my first was a disappointing 67 miles but great for my first time, my second one last year I completed. Boy did that feel amazing! There are a lot of websites that talk about how to train for a century, mostly it is about time in the saddle. I few things I learned, first find the comfort early this includes saddle, pedals etc., fuel your body right (you will know when you don't), learn the terrain you will be riding and if you can ride the route do it, it helps tremendously. I hope it helps, I am excited for you!

Welcome! We're a little more light-hearted than the bigger cycling team, but a lot of us are deadly serious about our cycling passion. Hang out, read the old topics, lurk for a bit if you like. We're really supportive of each other's goals, so keep us updated on your training - you'll get nothing but kudos and atta-girls from us. Well, truth be told, I might make fun of you know & then, but only if I think you can handle it. But everyone else is pretty nice. emoticon

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

Hi and welcome to the group! There are a lot of different riders here: some commuters, some triathloners, some training for centuries, most kind of a mix. Please feel free to ask any questions and offer any insights. We are a bit "sleepy" with all the snow in the northern climes, but ready to wake up soon!
