Where does the ride start?

There is no mass start. You may start where and when you want, but please note rest stop opening and closing times which will be noted on the Rider Information Sheet. Parking will be at the Sangre de Cristo Electric Association and the United Congregational Church.

Do I have to wear the wrist band and attach a number to my bike?

Yes, your wrist band and bike number give you access to aid stations, food, drink and SAG support. It also gives you access to the post ride party, meal and drinks after the event.

Will there be enough food at the rest stops or do I need to bring my own?

The rest stops are approximately 20 miles apart and will be fully stocked including a variety of fruit, bagels, muffins, bars, water and an energy drink. There will be a light lunch on the longer course.

What is the total elevation gain on the Century Route?

It is approximately 5780 feet recorded by a Garmin Edge 705.

What type of clothing should I bring?

Expect it to be warm and sunny in the lower elevations, but be prepared for a possible afternoon shower which could include snow or sleet so it is wise to carry a rain jacket and/or leg and arm warmers. Expect sun – so wear sunscreen! This is Colorado and we have little control over what Ma Nature feels like throwing you.

What if I have a breakdown on the road?

All rest stops will have mechanical support and there will be SAG support along the route. They will get to you as soon as possible, but come prepared to at least be able to fix a flat. Those with serious mechanical difficulties will be transported to a rest stop.
