century
 n.— «Together we’ve ridden thousands of miles on California’s back roads, frequently riding the organized cycling outings referred to as centuries. Riding 100 miles on a bike (there is usually a 62 mile so-called metric century option) isn’t actually as difficult as it would seem, as long as you don’t rush it.» —“Turning a Century in California” by John Markoff New York Times May 30, 2008.
