Do any of you know the youngest person on the list? My friend might try one over the summer and he's 15... (Sorry if its in the thread, I didn't want to read the whole thing.)

JuliaB,
I don't think age has been mentioned in this thread, except for the upper age record. A 13 year old kid just climbed Mt. Everest so I'm sure your friend could ride a century. Tell him to go for it.

Geoff

When we did our century in 2007 Beau was 15 years 3 months. Don't know if that's a record or not.

That's an impressive distance for an off-road race! What was the course like?

Does anybody know who is the oldest person (at the time they did it) to have done a century? I'm assuming everyone on this list completed their centuries in one day?

Yes you have to ride in one day to count. Then the harder goal is the 100-10-1, 100 miles, 10 hours, 1 person (no support).

I don't know everyone's age on this list - we should've collected that I guess. I was 48 years young when I did mine, but I'm sure that's not a record.

I won't have any support, and I'll be my century solo. I'll be up at 4am, riding by 5:20am, and when I finish will depend a lot on the amount of people on the bike path in the afternoon. It gets downright congested with bikers, rollerbladers, runners, and people constantly crossing without looking! This is where my mph average drops quite a bit, but there's not much I can do about that.

Last Saturday I did a longer 75 mile training ride, and I finished the first 50 in 4.5 hours, but it was still relatively early am. But I'd be happy to finish my century in 11 or so hours, with breaks included. It's the last half that will be the most challenging. It's also the last part that I have to ride 12 miles in traffic, with stop lights and intersections.

Bungeejoe is the oldest, than Nathan and I, I think.

Or this goal 100-10,000 squared- 1 which is 100 miles, 10,000' of climbing and an average riding elevation of 10,000', 1 person no support

So I will not be the old man any more. Sweet turning young again at my age.

Fleeting moments now and then now one will remember us any longer any way.

Geoff is determined. He'll get his completed sooner or later and make us all feel young.

With two centuries under the wheel this last month I keep looking for the right conditions for my first double century. Today might have been it but things went sour. A little to much wind, a little rain, lots of road crown, and mechanical problems. It looks like if I try again soon it will be an un-geared ride. The 'Blue Frog' is broke.

Terry: May the wind be at your back and have a fun ride.

I'll be ungeared as well, and as of my century ride on 7/11/10, I'll be 54 years, 6 months. (If I can make it, that is! )
