The Cycle Salt Lake Century is one of the early supported rides of the year. I signed up in order to practice some group riding and to see what riding 100 miles was like. And, the ride was a blast!

I spend nearly all of my cycling time riding solo. Even so, I picked up the general idea of riding in a peloton quickly. I still have plenty of room to improve my micro-speed adjustment so as to reduce or eliminate the yo-yo effect as the speed of the pace line varies.

I wound up riding with segments of the group with whom I registered for the ride and with ad-hoc groups that seemed to be pacing more comfortably for me.

I experienced some minor mechanical difficulties with my front derailleur, but a quick tightening of the derailleur cable at one of the support stops returned full access to my chainrings.

I'm totally looking forward to riding this century again next year.
