Of all the organized centuries/double centuries/brevets that I have done, I think Grizzly century is my favorite one. Great landscapes, great route, great support,
everything was good. The route is a loop near Bass Lake, close to the southern entrance of Yosemite. I guess it goes on quite remote roads,
I saw less than 5 cars per hour during the whole day. The ride was really well organized: it started with a big breakfast, then there was something like 10 rest stops
along the course (how could I finish in a reasonable time, I kept being distracted by the rest stops !). This is the only ride that I've done, where they have
baklava and sushi !! I had plenty of baklavas, American riders didn't seem to know these sweets and were eating disgusting peanut butter&jelly sandwiches instead.
At the end, a big community dinner with ribs and tri-tip. mmmm, even if this was a difficult ride, I doubt that I'm going to lose any weight on this one...
Stats of the ride: 100 miles, 10,000ft climbing, about 10 hours.
