<p>Anyone doing it?</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Seeing as I'm taking the year off any racing, figure this will give me some formal athletic endeavor for the year.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also - an opportunity to do a double century, for any masochists out there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But the elevation sounds good ... less than 1500 feet in 100 miles....</p>

<p>It is an awesome ride!! Well supported and great scenery. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Not sure if DH & I will be doing it, but it's always on the radar.  HE did do the back to back centuries a few years ago...</p>

<p>Great ride, I have done it a bunch of times.  Very nice now that you can sign up and do both days if you would like.  Only draw back for me is that it is the weekend after Reach The Beach so I hate being gone again for the weekend.  Keep your head up coming back in Hampton so that you don't miss the right hand turn to take you off the beach, into the back country and get you to 100.</p>

<p>I don't think I can commit to it this year. maybe next year, the mrs and I will do it - if she can ride - and we can do it for fun as a precurser to the winter training. MRS?? </p>

<p>Looking at the map, should definitely be easy - and with the cyclists outnumbering cars at that point, it should be fairly safe as well -</p>
<p>I love riding the beach (looks like my lunchtime rides cover about half the route) - and most drivers are considerate - but I've definitely had my share of close calls ...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Spring? Late September should be a great time to do it - and you're bound to have the wind with you for at least half the way...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I hear the trick to avoiding the registration line is to do the 25 miles down into Mass first, and then hit the registration table on the way back up.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyway - think I'm going to sign up tonight. Hopefully it's a nice looking T-shirt (I've got to do a purging of all my old T-shirty crap, and I could use a nice new one...).</p>

I'd be in for next year, assuming I'm allowed back on my bike.</p>

<p>In the several years we have done it, we only had one weekend of carppy weather...september is perfect for riding up there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Make sure you get OFF your bike and walk across the bridges - dangerous otherwise.  Besides there is usually a cop there yelling at you to get off...</p>

Yes, spring.  As in, September doesn't work out for me this year but I'd like to do a century next spring.  But, late September should be excellent.</p>

<p>along with walkingthe bridges, the other thing they are on the watch for is riding side by side and blocking traffic.  We had a case when our line was overtakking a pair of riders.  at the same moment, while topping a small rise a frieght train from a LBS went blowing by both of us.  And wouldn't you know it but there is a police officer on the other side of the road with a driver pulled over.  He started screaming at us and I kept lookingover my sholder half expecting to see him chasing us down.</p>
