Ugh! Scratch my plans for riding from Binghamton to Owego!

Just mapped the ride at ridewithgps.com/routes/586095

There are THREE climbs of 1500 feet apiece built into this ride! Don't know how they can say there is 1854 ft. elevation gain as I thought elevation would be cumulative, i.e. at least 4500 for those three climbs!

There is a WORLD of difference between a long FLAT distance and a shorter distance filled with climbs!

Don

i am definately doing the 64 mile ride on Sunday.. didn't think about biking to it to add mileage to it to try and make it a Century...Hmmm... I think i can do that.. Especially since it looks like they'll be a long enough break to stop and eat.. CAN you tell me what to expect from this ride???

You bet! Both days! Unfortunately Sat. is the only century ride they are offering.a century ride and other obligations make it necessary for me to take the shorter 61 mile ride on Sat.: Brooktondale Loop: biketioga.com/images/stories/61_mile

Even though they are not offering a century ride on Sun. depending on how I hold up and whether I can get out early enough I may bike TO the event from Binghamton which would give me another 40 miles to bump up Sunday's 64 mile ride to a century ride.

It would be cool to catch up on Sunday if you're doing the Berkshire Metric Century: "Roll over several hills on the way to Berkshire. Stop at the Cardinale Cafe in Newark Valley before rolling home." biketioga.com/images/stories/64_mile
