With a little over two weeks left before the Reston Bicycle Club Century ride, the number of registrants is nearing 1,000.
A total of 1,500 spaces are available for the event, which is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 27. Early registration has ended, but pre-ride discounted registration of $60 is still available through Aug. 18. Registration the day of the ride will be $75.
The 35th annual event will take riders through portions of Fairfax and Loudoun counties, start and finishing at Reston Town Center. Start times will be from 6:30-10 a.m., with all riders who plan to complete the full Century needing to be off by 9.
In addition to the 100-mile “Century” ride, participants can also choose the “Metric” (100 kilometers — about 62 miles) or “Half-Metric” (50 kilometers — about 31 miles) routes. The rides will be held rain or shine.
Volunteers are also being sought to help with rest stops, T-shirts, route marking and more.
