I'm registered. Did the Hilly Hundred (metric) and had a great time. Though you probably couldn't tell from the look on my face at the time. My legs didn't feel quite right for the rest of the week.

Yeah I can do one hundred miles easily on flat roads. On big hills (well as big as they get here) I'd rather do the metric hundred. My legs could do the full hundred miles I think but my feet started quitting on me after about 70 miles of hill grinding.

In for my first supported road century.

FE, there's an easy-paced century ride leaving from Publix at East Lake & Tampa Road this Saturday at 7:30, heading up the Suncoast, with an alternate pick-up location 8:15 - 8:30 at Suncoast & 54.

Not going to Alva, Harvey?

I'm probably not going either, and would love to do the HH, but I'm NOT going to Alva to save time and $, and doing the HH negates both of those savings.

Oh well...
