    "Pierce's BBQ Century"

    Looking to squeeze in one last century this year?  Or maybe to conquer your first century ever?  This fun and unique TBA century ride breaks up nicely into 4 parts:  35 miles from Suffolk to the Jamestown Ferry, 15 miles from the ferry to Pierce's BBQ in Williamsburg (lunch stop / halfway point), then 15 miles back to the ferry, and 35 miles back to Suffolk.  Cue sheet, map, and directions provided below.

    Bring snacks and $$ for lunch; the ferry rides are free.  Please plan to arrive by no later than 6:50 a.m. to allow for sign-in and pre-ride briefing.  We must depart promptly at 7 a.m. to ensure we stay on schedule for the ferries.

    From:  Western Branch Fishing Station, Girl Scout Rd, Suffolk
