    As the title implies, it's time to start working on those long pulls down the highway, which some will find hell. But, it will get you ready for those long pulls into winds that we almost always have on the Century!

    So, we'll start by heading west - heading up William Floyd, then southeast along Route 24, before we head up to Briermere Farms for a break.  Then it's down to Hampton Bays and a return route back through Eastport.  The distance will be about 66 miles, so have two big water bottles and snacks. Also, save some energy for the rolling terrain and the winds of the final leg of the ride.

    Let's work together, with no surges! 

    Otherwise you might be sent with Lou Diamond Phillips on this memorable trip...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdGICDHHndo

    Allons-y!
