About the experience:
Riders can choose from avatars that represent various races and gender. You can select from many different kits and YES the One Love Century kit is available for your avatar. You also have cycling equipment options to choose from. Riders should set these options up ahead of time.
During the ride, riders will experience the elevation changes of a classic One Love Century course and climb the infamous BIG UGLY near the end of the route. Riders will roll under Start/Finish, Midway and, Flamme Rouge banners, and see distance markers indicating their location within the course.
The virtual world will be branded in MACC, One Love Century, and sponsor’s signage. We even included those famous 1 ♥ road decals along the 25-mile course.
