Perfect Weekend for a Gold Belt Century!
The weather looks perfect for this years Gold Belt Century! Last year we had our first female rider, Michelle Arentzen, this year we'll have the first single speed rider, Nick Nisbet. For those unfamiliar with the route, considering the ride, and just don't know what to expect here is a little more info. The 100 miles are made challenging by the road conditions, washboard gravel, and elevation gain. What it's not is a race to the finish. We have a coffee stop, 2 breaks with shade cover and camping type toilets on the climb up Phantom Canyon, and a pizza lunch in the town of Victor. Sag vehicle being driven by Dr Steve, so you don't have to load yourself down with extra supplies and water. It's a challenge for damn sure, but we're not out there to suffer. See you out there for your soon to be new favorite Century!
