The day was finally here. Brent and I had been waiting for this day for awhile now. Bright and early on Sunday morning Brent and I headed up to Three Oaks, MI. The temps were in the high 40's, needless to say we had multiple layers on. It was partly cloudy, but overall looked to be a great day to test our legs on our first official biking event.
As we approached Three Oaks we were seeing more and more cars with bikes attached to them. This only added to the excitement of the ride ahead. The Apple Cider Century attracts 5,000 cyclist every year!!! When we finally entered town, the realization of how many cyclists this is finally hits.....Holy Cow that is a lot of people on two wheels. I have to give it to the organizing committee though, there were plenty of people to direct you to parking, and also plenty of people to direct you where to go for packet pick up. After packet pick up we went back to the car and unpacked the bikes. We got everything ready to go. We got on all our geeky bike gear, helmets, gloves, drink bottles, cycling computers. We were ready to go!!!
