Well.... I finally did it, I completed my first century. I still can't believe it that I actually rode 100 miles. The century ride I did was the Seagull Century. It was great weather, sunny not too hot, after lunch around mile 77 the wind did start to pick up and i Slooooooowed down and thought about quitting, then I remembered the next rest stop was the ice cream stop and I should just go on, afterall, I was well ove half way there and once I reached the ice cream I would be able to finish the last 16 miles.
So I will definitely do it again except, I will use clip pedals, actually get off the bike and sit down to eat at the rest areas, and ride with at least one other person, it was really hard to do it alone. Yes there were 7000 other people but I did not ride with anyone.
It was a great experience and personally very rewarding and very accomplishing.
