I would like some feedback on the Savannah Century. I did it many years ago and don't really remember much except that it was hot, flat, and I got heat exhaustion.

Thinking of trying it again this year since it is flat, but a little concerned about heat. I'm not riding as much....63 longest this year, but with hills.

Thanks!

I was talking about the beach with a friend of mine, and out of the blue, the Savannah Century came up. He said he has done it twice. It was the fastest century he has ever done. The only hill he remembers is the bridge at the start. He was in a group of riders attempting to break 4 hours, so I don't think he had a lot of memories of the countryside.

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I remember being in a pack going 30 mph at the beginning. I never go that fast, but found it difficult to get out of the pack. I was able to get out and then slowed considerably. Can't remember how fast I did it, but know I will be much slower now.
