Nice list. There's a couple there I didn't know about. Thanks!

Doing the CVCC ride next weekend. I've only done it once before, but I remember it as a very nice ride, especially the tour through the Antietam Battlefield.

I will be riding the Civil War and Seagull this year. My first centuries!!!!!

It'll take a little while, but I'll try to add these to the Google Calendar that I set up.

Oooh, glad I signed up early for the Civil War Century. I also would've considered the Back Roads Century, but the 50 States Ride is the day before and that's a much higher priority for me.

Also on October 6 is the Tour of Richmond <http://www.sportsbackers.org/events/martins-tour-richmond>

The Tour du Port is on Sept. 30 in baltimore for you urban ride lovers. It has a metric century option.

OK - Calendar is updated (and I'm adding the extra rides from TwoWheels and Rootchopper in a moment)

Anyone have any insider info on getting cue sheets for the reston century? I like my garmin and REALLY don't want to rely on a piece of paper when I get there.

I've ridden this century the past four years. Each year the course changes. Here is my Garmin track from 2011 (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/108448574#).
