CRW’s Winter Century Challenge is to ride one century per month in December, January, February, and March.
You pick the day. You pick the distance.
The imperial century is 100 miles.
The metric century is 100 kilometers.
The “Li Century” is 100 lis (a Li is an ancient Chinese unit, equal to ½ km).
Phillip is posting one imperial century in each month and invites others to join him on that day. However, winter is unpredictable--the roads may be unsafe, the children may be home for the holidays, the skiing in Vermont may be irresistible--so think of these century rides as placeholders. The date and route may change.
Date: Saturday 1/1/22
Time: 8:00 AM (get there 15 minutes early so we can start on time)
Start: Horn Pond Parking Lot, 93 Lake Avenue, Woburn , MA
Route: Java NH Line Ayer Honey Pot Century https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37922127

Disclaimer: Phillip is planning to ride this route on this date but...Winter plans are fluid. If the roads aren’t safe, Phillip will ride a different day. If family commitments (holiday or skiing) change, Phillip will ride a different day.
