Casa Grande Century - 101, 60 and 33 mile Options
Sunday, January 8, 2017

Sponsored by Phoenix Metro Bicycle Club

Join in for the first century and metric century of the year!

There are three route options: A Full Century (101 miles), a Metric Century (60 miles) and 33 miles. The 33-mile route is out-and-back and flat. The 60-mile route is out-and-back, with a slight hill. The 101-mile route is a loop and mainly flat.

This ride is a great first century or metric century. The terrain is flat, the roads have low traffic, and if history repeats itself, the weather will be sunny with a high of 70 degrees. What more could you want?

How about SAG stops with water, fruit and snacks? The century and metric riders get lunch at Dave White Regional Park in Casa Grande.

You'll get a route map ahead of ride day. Check back as the ride draws near.

Please bring enough spare tubes for your ride. There will be SAG vehicles on all routes to assist you and available for the weary and downtrodden!
