Start training now for the 2017 Double Century!
Ride will start at 6 AM sharp at Eastern Wayne High School. (Date to be disclosed asap)
Directions: Go north on Highway 13 (Berkeley Blvd) from Goldsboro. Approximately one mile north of Highway 70, go
east on New Hope Road about 3 miles. High school will be on your left. Turn just before the large blue and yellow sign.
Follow the parking lot around to the back of the school near the ball fields.
Our course is designed so that we ride 4 different loops, all starting and ending at Eastern Wayne High School. The first
loop is 65 miles, and each subsequent loop gets 10 miles shorter. Plan on riding the entire 200 miles, or join us for one or
more of the different routes we'll be riding. Estimated times of departure for each loop are:
65 mile loop, depart 6 AM
55 mile loop, depart 10:20 AM
45 mile loop, depart 2 PM
35 mile loop, depart 5:30 PM
Finish at about 8 PM
Rules of the ride:
1. We will ride 4 loops of 65, 55, 45 and 35 miles. We'll take a 15-20 minute break between each loop. Showers will be
available at the high school if you wish to take advantage. Bring your own food and drinks.
2. 18 mph pace, no faster, no slower. If you aren't able to hold the pace, we'll do everything in our power to help you get
back to the school. But we have a limited amount of daylight and won't be able to wait on you. The physical inability or
mechanical misfortunes of one rider could jeopardize the chances for everyone else to complete the ride.
3.. Minor mechanical problems, such as flats, we will wait and assist. Major mechanical problems, see # 2 above.
4. Riders who choose to ride faster than 18 mph are welcomed to do so, but we won't go with you, and you won't have a
5. The ride is not sagged. Bring your own food and drink. We'll stop halfway through each loop at a store.
6. No pre-registration, no sign-ups. No entry fee. Just come out and ride with us. This is a great ride, and if you've ever
wanted to do a double century, we believe we have hit on the secret of the best method to accomplish one. Proper speed,
proper breaks, proper nutrition. Lots of fun!
Our goal is to be able to provide Route maps both on paper and via downloads in .gpx and .tcx format for the 2017 ride.
