The Magic Number: 100

The “century” ride. 100 miles on-bike in a single day. Quite alluring.

There’s something about riding to that big, round, 3-digit number of miles with a simple mechanical device that it totally human-powered. It’s a feat. It’s a great goal.

Completing a century ride is a satisfying accomplishment, and a rite of passage for new cyclists. And, once achieved, is a recurring milestone in each subsequent cycling season. So, when will you ride your first century? Or your first century this year?

Three classics are provided by the Charles River Wheelmen, in the Spring, Summer, and Fall:

CRW Spring Century

CRW Climb To The Clouds

CRW Fall Century

Enjoy the ride.
