    I have done about 10 centuries in the last few years and I want to see how fast I can really go. I've completed a couple in 6 hours, but I'd like to try for a 5 hour century. Any recommendations on a fast/flat century in the Southwest? I'm in San Diego and would like to keep it under a day's drive to get to the ride.

    Of the centuries I've done, I think the El Tour de Tucson (2,200' gain, 107 miles) might be my best bet, but I'm sure there are a bunch of rides out there that I don't know about.


    (I do realize that a 5 hour century has a lot more to do with my conditioning than the course. I just want to maximize my chances)
