Reworking all of the cuesheets for the bike club took hours, but the finished product keeps a consistent look from one ride to the next and corrects a few errors. I also made sure that there will be maps for both the long and short routes on all of this year’s rides, though the maps aren’t very good. I don’t have sophisticated mapping software and even if I did it would be difficult to show enough details for accurate navigation. My maps at least will give the riders a feel for where they’re going and allow them to orient themselves by major highways.
My competition calendar will, for the second year in a row, prevent me from riding more than a handful of times with the WCBC. But I am looking forward to the club century, back on the schedule for the first time since 2008. It’s a great route that I hope will appeal to some of the stronger riders in the area. With only periodic refuel/rehydrate opportunities as we pass through the small communities along the route, the WCBC century won’t look or feel anything like the 100-mile rides offered by the bigger bike clubs. Yes, we have no bananas: you’re on your own for food and drink.
