Metric Century (Free T-Shirt):
The metric century 62-mile bicycle ride takes place on mostly rural roads with a sufficient shoulder width to provide a comfortable ride for the intermediate to advanced rider. The ride passes through Historic Bisbee, Arizona (www.discoverbisbee.com) and twice crosses over the San Pedro River. Two support stops will provide water, performance drink, and snacks. Restaurants in Bisbee also offer an opportunity to eat and rest, which is about half way through the ride. Technical support is also provided on the route if needed. Free T-Shirt for all metric century participants!
