" The Double Century is 202.4 miles. Total climbing is 12,600 ft. Almost two-thirds of the climbing is in the morning. Most climbing is under 10%, but some of the climbs are quite long. Lunch is at mile 107. Most riders seem to finish between 7 & 10 p.m. The course is mostly very rural, scenic, lightly traveled, & remote. Lots of it is twisty & turny (is that a word?) up & down, and often in need of repair (but that keeps the cars away!)"
