    This is a really cool ride! I rode with another TE member last year and had a blast. Got other plans this year, but have fun!

    I am still contemplating this one. I have never done a century before, but the climbing should not be an issue.

    Nope. For California, it's a relatively flat ride. A couple of ok hills towards the beginning, and then a big nasty hill near La Jolla, but otherwise not bad for climbs at all. The top of the big hill has a pit stop with a special reward.

    So, did anyone sign up for the Amtrak Century this year? I did the route to Solana Beach on Saturday which was about 80 miles since I started from my house rather than the Irvine train station. It's such a pretty ride!

    I'm super excited! Now I just have to figure out what kind of drinks and snacks I want for the train ride home.
