Biking - MHCC Metric Century (100km)

This weekend was the Mohawk-Hudson Cycling Club's annual Century Weekend, in Saratoga Springs. For those who don't know, a "century" is a 100-mile bike ride, all in one sitting. There were rides available for 100, 62, 50, and 25 miles, and I chose the 62, which is 100km, so a "metric century". It was a very hilly route, with over 2000' of climbing altogether, and my legs were, and are, certainly feeling it. My friend Ted and I rode it together, at a fairly reasonable pace, and finished in about 5.5 hours, including a couple of stops at the supported rest area. It was a challenging and tiring ride, topped off by an excellent pasta feed back in the finish area in Saratoga Spa State Park.
