by Franz Kelsch So you have been cycling for awhile now and have been increasing your weekly mileage.
For many cyclists, a century ride (100 miles) is a goal that is equivalent to running a marathon. It seems like a crazy long distance, but with a sensible approach and gradual build up, it is very much attainable for most folks. Think about it: if you average 12 miles per hour (a very comfortable pace), you can cover a hundred miles in just over eight hours of easy riding.
There comes a time in the life of just about every cyclist when that little voice inside your head says "you can ride 100 miles, why don't you sign up for a century?"
