More on the race from Century Ride website:

The 100 mile ride is over 8,500 feet of climbing up short steep hills promises to burn over 8700 calories.

The 60-Mile ride also ascends 5,500 feet and will climb the "Three Sisters" same as the 100-milers do. The Three sisters are three short climbs near the end of the ride in Roswell. You will have cheering fans as you pedal squares up the Big Sister in Mountain Park and Middle Sister as you pound your way through Wildwood Springs and finally you will roll up the Little Sister in Waverly Hall.
