2012 June 3 - Peninsula Metric Century - 64 Miles

Posing with Team Tamaraw in gig Harbor after the ride
Team Mang decided to do the Peninsula Century - an attempt at 100 miles with over 3300 feet of hills (7000 feet of actual climbs).  But some delays early during the ride and a crash that took down 3 riders (1 bad enough to be taken back to base with an unrideable bike) slowed them down.  They opted to do the 66 mile route instead and shoot for the actual century at the Flying Wheels Ride the coming Saturday.  It was still the most hilly ride aside from the 7HOK they've done so far.  Here's a video summary:

And here's the official route map:
