Both days included soup & roll for riders, Century Store, a Century momento and recognition for first-time 100 mile riders.

Question Title

* 16. Would you be interested in an option to order a custom Seacoast Century jersey along with your 2020 Century registration (Jersey cost would be $60-65 with design displayed) for pick up at check-in?

Question Title

* 17. Did you encounter any problems with other riders?  We want to ensure riders are courteous and don't pass without alerting others, ride single file in busy areas, etc.  We work hard to keep this event safe and our permits depend on riders sharing the road appropriately.

Question Title

* 18. One of our host towns proposed a requirement that all riders use flashing lights on the front and rear of their bike and a safety vest.  What are your suggestions to make riders more visible?  Would a flashing light  requirement affect your choice to ride with us?

Question Title

* 19. A NH Bicycle and Pedestrian Study is under way.  Your information will help show the economic impact of bicycle events like our Century.  There's a raffle for a $50 gift card ( Dunk'Ns or your choice) if you answer the following questions and share your email (it will not be used except for the raffle). USE ONLY NUMBERS IN YOUR RESPONSES. For example, 50 in response to Retail $ spent.

Approximately how much money did you spend as an individual while in NH for the Seacoast Century ride? (if traveling as couple or in a group, please estimate pro-rated expenditures made only by you).

Question Title

* 20. Please provide your email address if you answered the economic survey and want to enter the gift card raffle.  Your email address will not be used for any other purpose.

Question Title

* 21. Do you have any additional comments or suggestions for the Seacoast Century?  We hope to see you again in 2020.

Your friends, the Granite State Wheelers
