Hawaii Cy­cling Club Cen­tury Rides

Hawaii Tribune Herald - - SPORTS -

Hawaii Cy­cling Club’s fourth an­nual Cen­tury Rides are sched­uled for April 9 at Spencer Beach Park in Kawai­hae.

The three dis­tances will be held as a ride, not a race: 30 miles, 60 miles (a met­ric cen­tury), and 109 miles, and are a fundraiser for Hos­pice of Kona.

Aid sta­tions, a pic­nic lunch and a t-shirt are all in­cluded in the $50 en­try fee, and the club is of­fer­ing an early-bird spe­cial reg­is­tra­tion of only $25 un­til the end of Jan­uary.

For the sec­ond year, Hawaii Cy­cling is of­fer­ing a free “Couch to Cen­tury” 12-week train­ing pro­gram at 6:45 a.m. on Satur­days, through April 1, with guided rides, train­ing tips and guide­lines for both be­gin­ner and in­ter­me­di­ate riders.

Ac­cord­ing to a re­lease, the goal is to mo­ti­vate peo­ple to start rid­ing again, and train for a very doable 30-mile dis­tance, or a more chal­leng­ing 60-mile or cen­tury (100) mile ride – and to have fun do­ing it.

The Couch to Cen­tury pro­gram will meet at 6:45 a.m. on Satur­day, and will tag along with the Cof­fee Talk Riders reg­u­lar ride, with a “no bike left be­hind” pol­icy.

In­ter­ested cy­clists are asked to ar­rive promptly on Satur­day Jan­uary 14, and be pre­pared to ride 5-10 miles for the be­gin­ner riders, and 20-23 miles for in­ter­me­di­ate riders. Helmets are re­quired.
