List of upcoming Centuries and long rides

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

List of upcoming Centuries and long rides

I'm looking for Centuries and opportunities for similar rides in California and the Southwest. So far, finding those rides has been hit and miss. Does a published directory of upcoming Centuries exist anywhere?

Some of the organizers around here are bound and determined that FaceBook is the place to post their event. Don't know how they figure that since no one I know cares to use FaceBook and not surprisingly attendance for those such advertised ride events were way down last year. I expressed my concerns to one organizer and they apparently must be of the AOL mentality as they felt FaceBook was the only advertising they needed.

Opportunities for centuries? Seems straightforward enough, just hop on a bike and do 100 miles.

This ^^^ I do not use Facebook. When I'm looking for century rides and the URL directs me to a Facebook page that's just one more century ride I won't be doing.
