The planned route - a century of no backtracking and all within city limits

It came from Wandrer Earth

8 September 2020 by Pearl

Craig and I thoroughly enjoyed watching this video from OPE! Cycling showing an attempt to ride a century on city streets without backtracking while maximizing new roads. There are so many classic Wandrer-ing moments captured here – unexpected no trespassing signs, climbing over fences, paths that are on the map but disappear into a huge pile of weeds, dead ends at a river.

Time to figure out a re-route..

This video is super inspiring (we’d like to host an event to attempt a similar ride on Atlanta’s streets) and great fun to watch. Thanks for the feature, Ope!
