Stay Hydrated -- really important!
Stay Fueled -- also very important!
Have Fun and Keep Encouraging each other -- equally as important so you'll finish together.

Good Luck! You'll be tired at the end but it is worth it.

Good luck with the century! I'm aiming to do one myself I just don't know when. I ride my bike every day to commute because I choose not to drive, but doing a century will be a great accomplishment for me. My plan for training will be doing 20 miles, then 40, then 60, then 80, then the century. Let me know how it goes you can do it!

I did my first unofficial century in September and thought it was a great accomplishment. Mine wasn't hilly either. I did it with my husband and his friend who do it every year. Right now they are in Texas doing a 7 day bike trip going 50-80 miles a day. I did it and don't bike as much as they do and I did great they said. Just remember to fuel often and stay hydrated. A little sore the next day but not that bad for going a 100 miles in one day. You will do great. You will feel like you accomplished something good. Have fun!!

Much luck to you. My hubby and I just rode in a century last Saturday only I just did 50. That was enough! He did the whole 100 (first century ride) and he looked 100 when he got done LOL. It wasn't "no hill" though. It went up what is called Billy Goat Mtn. I'm sure you'll do great and we send you lots of energy!

Wow. I had to read a bit to confirm what I thought a century is!
Are you riding this in one day, or is this over 2 days?
Best of luck! I look forward to hearing how it went!

Hello,

Have a blast and enjoy the ride! I rode my first century in May and it was such a great ride. What is the route like?

Good Luck and most of all have fun doing it. I found doing my first century with people that I know and ride with usually made it even more fun. If that is possible riding in a century????;-) LOL

Also, take advantage of the rest stops .... remember to stay hydrated even on a cool day.

Best of luck. I will be doing my first century next week Saturday in MI. Hopefully the weather holds. Last year it was 85, the year before 60's but no rain. Who knows what this year will bring. Hopefully no rain.

You'll have a great time! Best of luck.

I'll be doing my 5th century of the year (so far) on Saturday also, but on the other side of the country (SeaGull Century at Salisbury MD).

You are in a great place for riding!! You might want to consider doing America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride, which goes around Lake Tahoe and into Truckee. The trip to Truckee makes the 100 miles, since the round trip around the lake is only 72 miles. The ride is on the first Sunday of June every year.

I'm doing the No Hill Century on Saturday with my friend that I met through Sparkpeople, Eeyore566. That brave woman is coming to Fallon, NV with hubby AND kidlet in tow, from California. I am in Reno, NV and will be meeting her there. We met this summer for the first time in person and did a couple of very nice rides together here in Reno. It's her first century and my first official century. I have not gotten in the miles I should have. I juggle riding, running, a fulltime job and a boyfriend. And some needy dogs.

I must add that my boyfriend will also be doing the century. He's one of those guys that has been cycling his entire life, can be off the bike for weeks and hammer out a century just fine. I'm not one of those. LOL

It'll be fun. I'm looking forward to it. I know I'll meet folks that I knew in Elko when we had a bike shop there, and that'll be cool And I'll see Elsa, she's a hoot. A hoot and a half, ah heck she's a nutjob. Just kidding, Elsa. Yer da Shizzle, fer Rizzle.
