I was just wondering how many century rides 50+ cyclist average during a year? I haven't done any this year but got one in last year and would like to average four a year.
I have done five half and one metric century rides so far this year. Our cycling team is scheduled to do six or seven more metric centuries this year in charity rides. I would have done my first of the year in last months MS 150, but they shut down the century route because of the expected severe thunderstorms. Ended up doing two half centuries, back to back.Poolie said:One a year for me. I'm not yet a fan of the centuries as of yet. Riding solo I'm just bored to death after 5-6 hours in the saddle. However I'm finally getting introduced to the joys of riding with a partner and it totally changes everything. Recently discovered that a neighbor of mine rides so the past couple weeks he and I have been going out after work for a 20-25 mile ride and I'm amazed how quick the hour goes by. He's a chatty fellow and we have a lot of common interests so it adds a new element to the ride. I'm hoping we sync our calendars for a century together this summer. I want to see how much of a difference it makes.
I do love metrics though and have done two organized ones so far this year and am already searching for a third. I'll do as many of those and I can work into my schedule.
