- Rules of the century?
You may have to elaborate on this.
Would “yes, Strava does work on turbos” suffice? 🙂
It’s your century – it’s what it means to you that counts. Done my first a month or so back on a sportive, two food stops and two puncture stops, that’ll do for me. Did a 95 mile round trip on cycle to work day as well, and although that was shorter and had an eight hour gap in the middle, that was loads harder! 🙂 The century is still the century, though. 🙂Posted 4 years agoclubberMember
Semi sensible answer 🙂
100 miles is really no big deal for any cyclist who rides regularly – it just sounds a lot to those who haven’t done it before or who don’t cycle. So long as you don’t go off too fast, doing 100 miles is just a case of keeping the pedals spinning for x hours while making sure you eat/drink enough to sustain that.
So, bragging rights don’t really exist. For those that will be impressed by you riding 100 miles, they won’t care whether you stopped or not because WOW, REALLY, YOU RODE 100 MILES. ON A BIKE!!!!!
For those that realise that it’s not that difficult, you’re not going to impress them (unless maybe you do it in under 4 hours or achieve the 100/100/100 miles/beers/pees combo) so just do it however you fancy.
Personally, I’d do it with pee stops as needed and a 20-30 minute stop for some lunch – as I’d want it to be enjoyable.Posted 4 years agobobloMember
Well, on a positive note…. Good for you getting fit enough to ride ~ 7 hours (or whatever). You still have to sit and pedal for hours on end and you will feel pooped afterwards despite the naysayers on here doing it backwards, on a penny farthing, in the 18th century, with a pineapple shoved up their ars… errrm, you get the message. 🙂
Good luck to you and report back how you get/got on.Posted 4 years agobobloMember
Sorry Clubber, not getting at anyone in particular. Just the general theme is a bit ‘so what?’ It can be a big deal if you’ve never done one, especially if you were to choose the Lakes Passes as your first! 🙂
Anyone remember the Chap a bit ago that was doing one during a Sportive… by slipstreaming? Now that is worthy of a big dollop of scorn 😉Posted 4 years ago
