June 20th, 2020
Check out the awesome video my son did.

Keep your fingers crossed that we get a new start location for the 9th Annual Century Experience Ride. We are looking at two possibilities. Same location as this year, Dee may be moving so we may have to come up with an alternative. Then perhaps a location in Guffey.

We will have K/Q of the mountain with jersey prizes. We are looking into doing an new route! STAY TUNED!

Winners will be determined for 4 age groups. Under 30, 30-44, 45-59, 60 plus. Men’s and Women’s.

    How do I register for the ride? The link on the website goes to last year’s registration.

  2. mtcc says:

    Hi Jason, I will try to email you one and look into why it did last years. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. Claudia Manding says:

    Is there a link to register for this ride?
    I’d like to participate.

  4. mtcc says:

    I added to registration websites,
    and I go cycling a new registration website.

    You can also go to the Experience tab, printable registration form and mail it in.

    What is the total climbing elevation of the 106 mile ride.

  6. mtcc says:

    It is over 10,000+ for the 106 mile route. There is a map on the Experience Ride Tab on the website. I will email you it and a greman down load a ride did.

  7. Bob Holstine says:

    Is it possible to register and pay the day of the ride?

  8. mtcc says:

    Sure thing Bob, June 1st it goes up another $5. and we can’t guarantee we will have your t-shirt size.

  9. Bob Holstine says:

    Can you take a credit card for registration the morning of the ride or is cash required?

  10. mtcc says:

    Hi Bob, I do have an app on my phone to take payments or credit cards. However cash is fast! Walkups are welcome so what ever is best for you.

  11. Len says:

    I saw that jerseys would be for sale for $65 if ordered before Feb 14 but there’s nothing on the registration about ordering a jersey. How do we order a jersey with registration??

  12. mtcc says:

    Just let me know what size jersey you would like. Men’s Primal. Full zipper, I will mail it to you with your packet if you mail me a check or pay at the start / finish.

  13. Kathy Larkin says:

    I’m fairly new to Colorado; what is the elevation gain for the 50 miler? I’m coming from sea level. ๐Ÿ™ Thanks!

  14. mtcc says:

    Hi Kathy, The 50 miler has over 4,000 feet of elevation gain. I would suggest that you sign up for the 75 miler but kind of do your own route. If you look at the map, some ladies last year rode up towards Cripple Creek till they didn’t want to climb any more then turn around. It is all up hill and then all down hill if you do not do the Cripple Creek loop.(50 miler), then they went towards the 75 mile route (towards Guffey loop) till they didn’t want to climb anymore and then rode back to the start/ finish. We will have SAG out along the route and HAM radio communications set up at each rest stop. It really depends on how you feel. The start/finish is at about 7,000 feet to begin with. One year a lady from San Antonio rode the whole route, in 10 hours so it just depends on the individual. We want you to have fun, and enjoy the open space, views and beauty of Colorado.

    I would like to purchase a jersey. I was only given the opportunity to purchase a t-shirt on registration web-site. Thanks! -TJ

  16. mtcc says:

    Hi TJ,

    You can mail a check $65.00 to MTCC P.O. Box 843 Woodland Park, CO 80866. Let me know what size, they are men’s primal wear, full zipper. I will mail it to you with your ride packet that will include your rider #, t-shirt and so on 10 days before the event.

  17. Dave says:


    How many people typically ride the 106mi route. Looking for a good ride to test my endurance before the Triple Bypass, but would prefer not to be riding alone all day. Thanks.


  18. mtcc says:

    Hi Dave,
    A lot of riders use the Century Experience Ride to train for the Triple. I would say 80% of the riders do the 100 mile route. I will have to look up my figures from 2018 to give you an exact #. In 2015 and 2016 we had 240 registered riders, In 2017 and 2018 we had 164, I am hoping that by offering the big teams a discount we can get a least 300 riders for 2019. Plus the chance to win K/Q of the mountain for a jersey and $100.00 cash. There will only be two sections that will marked for the challenge. Those that want to compete will download their STRAVA times to determine the winners. (I broke it down into 4 different age groups so there would be better chances for winners). There is over 10,000 feet in elevation gain, (Starting at 7,000 feet). Our routes are fully supported with SAG and Ham radio operators. You will never be alone. I hope that helps, Deborah (Event Director)

  19. Rick says:

    Dave, I have ridden the century the last 3 ears. As Deborah says you will never be alone. I would say the only part of the century where there hasn’t been significant riders around is after climbing up from Guffey, where there have been riders, to the end of the Guffey loop, things thin out.


  20. Greetings,
    I am very interested in doing this ride and I was wondering if there is a Strava link I can follow to get an idea of how long it has taken others to do the ride?

    Thank you,
    Marshall Evans

  21. mtcc says:

    We haven’t set up the link to the STRAVA down loads to date. This will be our first year offering a K/Q of the mountain challenge so I have nothing for you to compare to. If you have a team or 15 members I can set you up with a discount code for, just let me know.

  22. Corinne says:

    Interested in this ride to train for the Triple. Having a bit of a difficult time navigating the website and finding some info. For me, i keep getting messages that itโ€™s not available when I try to open the PDFs of the routes. All I can find is the elevation chart from 2014. That route says 109 miles and ~7500 feet of gain. Wanted to verify the mileage and elevation for the century option.
    Also there are aid stations with food and water?

  23. mtcc says:

    Hi Connie,
    Thanks for the heads up on the map. I will look into that ASAP. I will email you the map and we rerouted a little section so it is still 100 miles. It is over 10,000 feet in elevation gain, I will have aid stations no more than 20 miles apart. Deborah

  24. annavi says:

    Can we still get a jersey? I just registered but couldn’t figure out if I could still purchase s jersey or not.

  25. mtcc says:

    Yes, of course What size jersey would you like? Men and Women’s cut

  26. olmowebb says:

    Is this all paved roads or does it include dirt roads as well for the 100 miler. Do you have a course map available?

  27. mtcc says:

    Yes, It is all on paved roads! Maps are under the Experience Tab of the website.
