Welcome to the site for all the latest information about Connecticut's dirty little century, roughly 118miles in early September, about half off paved surfaces. Please start by reading The Basics (this is a link) for information about the ride (if current year Basics is not yet available, the previous year will give a general gist).
Rather than answer individual questions repeatedly, please address questions as "comments" to the MOST RECENT post and I will answer in a blog posting for all to see.

In case of rain
As originally advertised, the ride is scheduled for Saturday May 7th (just over a week away!) with the 8th held as a rain date. That's one of the advantages of a "disorganized" ride without feed stops and other various logistics: it's no big deal to start 24hrs late. Still, it isn't a group ride without a group all on the same day, so while the current forecast (but who trusts a 10 day weather prediction in New England) for Saturday is looking good, I will post a final decision of Saturday or Sunday by the night of Thursday the 5th. Light showers shouldn't be an issue, but there is no reason to go out for a day if misery in the pouring rain.
