Overall Difficulty:

The metric century is Moderate and the Imperial Century is Strenuous.

 

Details:

These two centuries are joint rides with the Louisville Bike Club (LBC).  

The LBC has a group of "Mad Dogs" who ride centuries most weekends and gain points for finishing in a group rather than finishing quickly.

Wheels roll at 8:15 which is an LBC tradition.

Both routes pass through Shelbyville with the 102miler adding more northern mileage in places such as Eminence and New Castle. These maps are from the Preservation Pedal 2015, many thanks to the mapmakers. The starting point of the maps is next to the Convention Center on Clinton with the closest cross street being Fountain.

We do ask that participants sign in for only the club that they belong to (and those who belong to BCC and LBC can sign both). If possible, please bring your own map or load it into your bike computer.
