My team is watching the reply’s and a response I just got was interesting.
If there has been opportunity to do a century every year and only 20% chose to participate why would the powers to be decide the 80% who did not want to do it be forced to do the100+ miles to consider themselves as finishing the ride. The question to me was – do the wishes of the few outweigh the wishes of the many? Even though the few could still do the 100 if they chose?
I think it’s an interesting question- not looking to get anyone flustered or upset, just relaying the conversations my folks are having.
