34-36 Loop

This is probably one of the easiest “legitimate” century rides you could do, clocking in just around 100 miles. There is a fair bit of climbing (total of ~5100 feet, max elevation of ~8100 feet), but the grade is very easy, never more than perhaps 5% or 6%. The McDonald’s in Estes Park is a great refueling stop, if you’re into that thing, especially because they have Powerade in the soda fountain. The stretch on 287 is pretty bad right now, but should hopefully get better as they finish the construction.
