For those planning on doing this Saturday in Rochester, what is your typical (or expected) riding pace? And, what opportunities are there for stopping? I tried pulling up the map from the link in the description but it didn't work. (I'm trying to figure out if my body is reallllly ready for this.)

Here's the route:

Copy it and paste it and it should pull up a map. I'm not sure many people go to this page for info. I have the info posted in a Rochester Google group--you may have better luck communicating with people here:

I was wondering the same thing. My average pace will probably be around 12 mph.

You can ride the route for the 62.6 any day in Sept to earn your "62.6" sticker. Here's the route: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/39224227

I don't have it in Strava or any other app so if you don't use Garmin Connect you can create it in another app.

Looking forward to cranking off another one! If there's any interest, I'm planning on rocking out another 37.4 miles to hit an imperial century. I'd be happy to create a second group ride event to file this one.
