Door County Century Bike Ride

 The  Century Bike Ride 2010 was recently held in  Door County and a couple of very good musician friends of mine from Madison participated, as they have for several years.  Adam Michie of  Bluetrain and Bonobo Secret Handshake and Mark Loder of The Relics are pictured in the first picture.

There were some changes this year, primarily location.  The Fairgrounds in Sturgeon Bay is the new locale which affords more people the opportunity  to participate due to the ability to overcome space limitations.  

 

There are two excellent aspects of this race.  The local scenery all along the way is one of them, but the other part is the flexibility to accommodate all abilities.  You can do the Century (100 miles) or the half century (I remember that birthday!), or anything in between.  This means that lots of families with children can participate and select their own routes geared to the energy and skill levels of the kids.

And they feed you!  Here are the bikers chowing down after the race. You could really work up an appetite after 100 miles.

 

 

 There is still time to register for next year.  Adam,  Mark and friends recommend it!

Good for you, Kristin!  I am sure it was most enjoyable.  I have not beenup there this year at all (yet!)

And I am pretty sure you have made good music up there, too, Eric.

Thanks, Melanie!  I could justify all the calories after a long bike ride-not that I could do a Century ride myself!

You're right, the scenery along the way is beautiful from the pictures you have!  I admire bike riders - I just can't do it.  My husband does occassionally with another friend but once they start pushing 30 miles he comes home.  Whew - determination!
