Tips for Riding Your First Century

So you've been riding a little or a lot and youve decided to ride your first ride of 100 miles - your first century. Anyone can do a century. It takes a little determination and with proper preparation can be relatively painless and quite enjoyable.

There are many people who believe that you can ride far less than this and still complete the ride. Riders who can't find time during the week can do moderate length rides on weekends and still have hopes of completing a century.

Nutrition Tips to Survive Your First Century Ride

For many cyclists, a Century Ride (100 miles) is a goal that is equivalent to running a marathon. It seems like a crazy long distance, but with a sensible approach and gradual build up, it is very much attainable for most folks. Think about it: if you average 12 miles per hour (a very comfortable pace), you can cover a hundred miles in just over eight hours of easy riding.

But there are important factors to keep in mind when planning for a century ride.
