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.

It's all about the blog, man.
In the comments, there was a question about being emailed with information about the ride. Good question, but as a free-for-all, services relating to this ride are limited. There is no email list. Best bet is to subscribe to the blog and you will receive notice as more information becomes available.
And more apologies: I really wanted to have this year's "Basics" posted by now, but large portions of the route are still covered by snow. In case people are missing it, that gray print in the text at the top of the page (just below the title picture) is a link to the nuts and bolts of the ride. For now, that is still the 2012 version, but for this year the main change is to the date, April 27th, 2013 (with Sunday rain date). Other than that, I expect the loop will change by less than 100 yards, but I just need to inspect route conditions before finalizing this year's "Basics."
