Only ever done 100k - ye olde randonee of the Isle of Wight. Two stops minimum. I'm out to enjoy the ride, not prove a point. If I start to feel my morale on the slide, as usually happens at some point on a long (for me) road ride, even on a good day, I'll stop and wolf down some grub, have a drink and straighten up.
Roadies - how many breaks do you take on a century ride?
I stop at 100 miles to eat a banana, then turn aorund and head home. Rar.
For me it's about five stops, just to stretch my legs, eat some food, put the bike in the shed, shower, and get about ten hours sleep.
What's wrong with people FFS
stopping for a pee
you ain't a real roadie unless you can slip your todger out on a long downhill stretch and discharge as you are riding along.
Don't do it at the front of a chaingang though
depends on the terrain, fred whit ton is just over 100 miles and i HAD to stop 3 times
100 miles Arran to penrith - mostly downhill so just for a pee and fill bottles
Expect to get showered in bodily fluids, that's racing....hold your line.
Read that somewhere?
105km on sunday in 3h45, one stop for banana & map check
What's with all the 'metric century' nonsense?
100 miles or give over, thanks.
