Century! A double centruy of sorts on Day 5, as I rode it in 100F heat. I was dragging at the start due to storm-provoked poor sleep, but caffiene and sugar in Bennington fixed that and got me over the hump. A good thing, too, because the pre-planned BAK century add-on loop proved to be uphill all the way around! It took us through my old stomping grounds of Enterprise before finishing in Chapman.

As noted, I completed a century with 102 miles of riding, detailed at Garmin Connect or at Ride With GPS.
