Just wanted to say thank you to your club and all the volunteers who put on a marvelous WCC last weekend. And kudos and thanks to the Sonoma County Sheriff Dept. too for being professional, helpful, patient and friendly all day long. We really appreciate all the hard work by the volunteers and made it a fun day to ride the bike. We know it's a lot of work and we all appreciate it. Hope it was a good day for you all. [no reply necessary--just expressing our gratitude]. T.H.
Thank you for organizing a well-organized event. I was invited by friend to join as this was his first century ride and he said he had a great experience. This is my 2nd century ride and I will highly recommend to friends and family especially the ones looking into their first century. The stops were great and the food selection was very good. Lunch for me was a roast beef wrap and it was nice and not too heavy for lunch. There were a couple of major right turns (not sure which one) that we missed and would be nice if there was a person/volunteer on that turn to guide the cyclists. Other than that, everything went smoothly in my opinion. R.R.
I rode the century last weekend. Really great event! Well organized, etc. I had a great time.
Be curious to know approximately how many of the 2600 registered riders there were for each of the four distances if that info is easily available. No worries if not... C.C.
Response (approximate number) 35 mile 300 riders, 100K 1050 riders, 100M 950 riders, 200K 200 riders
Wow! What a well run event! I typically participate in multi-day tour for another club, but the cost has gone beyond what I can afford. I will definitely be making this an annual ride instead. Beautiful route, great volunteers, rest stops that are second to none. If you only do one organized century per year, this is one to do! M.R.
Too many riders resist heeding the "single file" messages making it difficult to pass even though there were a multitude of signs posted. Perhaps the sag wagons should verbally reinforce this (?).
Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who made the ride so enjoyable! My husband and I couldn't stop commending their awesome attitudes, big smiles and joyful spirit throughout the entire day.So sorry to hear about the bike thefts in the parking lot. So brazen! See you in 2018!
First I want to say SRCC does an outstanding job putting on the Best cycling event in California. I ride centuries and double centuries all over the state. No one does a better job then SRCC! But with that being said, I have one very small complaint. I had selected the Tri Tip lunch. I was only given one "little" pieces of meat. I requested more and was given on more "little" piece. I'm hoping that is an area that can be improved upon for next year. W.C.
The century was wonderful. The rest stops were perfectly placed and the food was wonderful. Specially the deli sandwich. Did I need that. I don't remember a tailwind. One solution to the bike theft problem is a bike mounted GPS tracker. K.H.
(After we shipped his favorite water bottle back to him.) Now that is some EXCELLENT customer service on top of a really fine event. I ride a number of centuries in Northern California every year and the WCC is consistently the best organized and with by far the best volunteers. Thanks for going the extra mile and sending the bottle to me – I sincerely appreciate it. M.S.
