Century Day

Wheeler Natural Area (Dirt Lot)
Address: 1715-1797 Swift St, South Burlington, VT 05403, USA

Please pre-register for this ride here.

Three rides, all following the same route for the first 25 miles with a food stop in Bristol.  The Metric Century is 62 miles (M) via Bristol and Vergennes.  The full Century is 100 miles (S) traveling down to the Crown Point Bridge and returning through the Champlain Valley.  Those looking for an extra challenge can do the Double Gap Century which is 113 miles and includes the Middlebury and Appalachian Gaps.

Brian Howard will serve as leader for the metric century (62 miles) and Kevin Batson will lead the United States customary units (a.k.a. USCI or Imperial) century (100 miles).  Webmaster's editorial comment: tell me again why the US refuses to go fully metric like the rest of the world? The "US customary units century" just does not roll easily off the tongue.

    This rolling hill ride (60 M/S) passes through Georgia and Milton before heading to St. Albans Bay for a break by the bay and over to Swanton. The shorter version (40 M) turns around after the break stop. This ride has a short stretch along the shore of the Lamoille River and a longer stretch along Lake Champlain. There is only one store on the ride and it is at the point where the two rides separate.
