The Reston Century benefits various non-profit organizations.
Approximate ride distances are:
--Century: 102 miles
--Metric Century: 65 miles
--Half Metric Century: 35 miles
The challenging Century and Metric Century routes follow beautiful rolling rural roads through scenic, historic towns such as Leesburg, Hamilton, Purcellville, Round Hill, Hillsboro, Lovettsville and Waterford.
The Half-Metric Century is relatively flat.
Rides are self-paced and self-directed via cue sheets and route signage. Rest stops with abundant food/drink, first aid and mechanical support are provided every 15-20 miles. All routes are covered by radio-dispatched SAG support.
Free parking for 1500+ is available at the Reston Town Center garages. Note the height limits for roof racks!
Helmets must be worn by all riders. Riders are expected to have a well equipped bicycle in good working condition, and should be able to perform their own minor repairs. Repair support will be available. Bring adequate clothing, water bottles, spare tubes or patches, a pump and extra money.
