Seagull Century 2006

Posted in Cycling, Ride Report by MB

Another year, another Seagull Century. After bailing on last year’s Seagull, decided to push ahead with this one, weather be damned. And damned it was. The season’s first official nor’easter brought us buckets of rain and gale force winds for most of the ride.

    Glad you made it and sorry you got rained on! Jeremy was supposed to spend next weekend doing the century that we bailed on last year, but he got food poisoning this weekend and he’s not sure now that he’ll be up to it.

    My first… someone tell me that they have not all been like this one!! I ride in western PA and a lot of hills, though this course was flat the wind made it up hill all the way – brutal.
    I will do it next year -great roads, great course.

    [...] Seagull Century October 6, 2007 (Saturday) Salisbury, MD Probably the most famous century ride in the Mid-Atlantic area. Last year’s storm resulted in less than a third of the usual participants, but I’m sure they’ll all be back this year. Riders have metric century (100k, 62miles) and century (100 miles) options, which they can decide on at any time until the 20 somethingth mile of the ride. See this for more info. Also, note that decent pretty much all lodging fills up quickly, so reserve your room now, if you’re thinking about doing it. Most of the hotels in Salisbury are booked already. [...]
