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.

Let's hope for a sunny day Saturday

Slight chance of rain in the forecast for Saturday, but not enough to make sense pushing back the ride to Sunday. Let's do it; Saturday it is!
I plan to make it down to the trail head by 7:45 on Saturday morning to give people a chance to ask any last questions. It will be nice if we can roll out en masse, but of course, with the directions, people are free to set whatever pace they wish.

If you need to find me before the start, and we haven't met,
this is what I look like with a comical mustache (it's gone now)
and a very serious head on a stake.
And yes, this picture was take along the De Tour route.


  1. Still thinking it's a go for Saturday?

    Wunderground is now predicting 70% chance of rain, with likely T-storms in the morning...

  2. Now it shows only 20% chance of showers. We'll stick to Saturday, avoid miscommunication, and possible enjoy a light spritz now and then.
