Great ride today! My only suggestion would be to add a couple more pottys at the rest stops.

What an amazing day for a bike ride. The weather, the people, the route, the after party and most importantly the cause!

Has the century ride been "capped" yet? Haven't registered and just want to make sure I'll be able to ride the century since I will need to register on Friday. Thanks
