Following up on the successful debut of our new century venue last year, our annual century will again be hosted at St.Benedict’s Church at the corner of Stafford Road and Smith Road north of Covington. Registration begins at 6:30 am Century & Metric Rides start at 7:00 am Half & Quarter Century Rides start at 8:00 am.
The event will include routes of 25, 50, 62 and 100 miles. And of course, all of the the routes include rest stops with snacks, sports drink, water, and toilets. You will be provided with a route map and cue sheet, and direction arrows will be painted on the roads at all turn points. After your ride you will enjoy a catered meal with bottled water, beer and soft drinks available.
While the century is designed to be an enjoyable experience, the event is held on public roads open to other vehicles. Riders should expect to encounter motorists and be prepared for road hazards. Participants should operate their bicycles in a safe and lawful manner and obey traffic laws throughout the ride. The CCC requires the use of ANSI or Snell approved helmets for all club rides including the century. Everyone is encouraged to ride with a partner; children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
The registration fee for the Crescent City Century is $40. The century fee includes SAG support, restroom facilities at the start and at each rest stop, maps, road surface markings, and lunch with beer and soda following the ride.
CCC Members who register by September 13th will pay a discounted price of $30. This discount is valid for pre-registration only. All registrants will pay $40 on the day of the century. Non-members may join CCC and save $10 on their century fee by submitting a membership application and dues ($20/yr individual, $30/yr family) along with their century pre-registration. If you join now, your membership will expire on December 31, 2015.
This is a “rain or shine” event; not much short of a hurricane bearing down on us will force a postponement. If the unthinkable should happen be sure to check this website for century rescheduling information.
