Block that date and file those taxes early so you can participate in the most twisted century (oh, that's supposed to read "with a twist")!  This is a club century you are definitely going to want to attend.

Segment Challenge for each Pace

There will be "event specific" segments set up specially, just for this day!  These segments are mostly uphill - a shocker - and you'll be able to see how you did after the ride on the ridewithgps leaderboard.  Other than boasting rights, there may be some recognition of extraordinary efforts on these segments.

But there's a catch.  In order to be eligible for this recognition, you must RSVP to the event on ridewithgps AND you must also be synchronizing your rides to ridewithgps.  If you are loading to Garminconnect today, this is a seamless process.  I've included setup instructions below.

Ride Rating - See Chart

To help you make the “good choice” when selecting a Shawnee Trail Cycling Club ride, we have made an attempt to rate each ride based on a combination of factors.  We have selected what we consider the most important criteria, including pace, distance and terrain.

Please take into account that these ratings are based on someone of average fitness.  If your fitness is above or below the average participant, you may find these rides much easier or far more difficult to complete.

For example when looking at the Saturday CPS C pace group, it has a pace of C (3) + a distance of 45mi (4) + rolling hills throughout the ride (5) for a total overall rating of 12

STCC has decided, for the spring only, to add a little twist and challenge to your taxing day.   We are holding an urban century, a route with each loop just slightly different from the last.  The loops are mostly variations of our ever popular D.R.o.P. and Wed Night Special rides.  And with each loop rolling by the start at CTEC, you can ride as little - or AS MUCH as your body can stand.

We'll also have some special things for those that complete the 100K and the full century.   If you don't think this will get you ready for the BikeMS, Tour de Cure or any other ride you may have planned this year!
