Outfitted Lonnie's mountain bike with slick tires for the 100 miles. Lonnie took his hybrid and Judy took her road bike.
Stayed at the Salvation Army Gym for $15 the night before the ride. Definitely one way to avoid the task of trying to find a parking spot on the day of the ride when 7000 other people are trying to find parkng as well. Camped out on the free throw line. The $15 included floor space, showers, and bathroom facilities. About half the people setup tents inside the gym and the other half slept out on the open floor like us. There was about 40-50 people in the gym and about the same number on the football field.
Started the ride just after 7am. Greeted by a finger freezing morning. Would've been nice to ride with the full-fingered gloves for the first two hours if I remembered to bring them.
Definitely no waves at the beach we were at. Although, the Atlantic definitely seemed warmer than the Pacific Ocean.
The food wasn't quite up to par for other centuries I've ridden; however, the apple pie and ice cream were a nice touch at the last rest stop.
After the ride, even got to shoot some hoops at the Salvation Army gym.
