RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Nearly 700 participants took advantage of the sunshine Saturday in Ridgeland for the Natchez Trace Century Ride.

It's an event that started back in 1999 and this year they had one of their largest turnouts ever.

Cyclists had the option of riding a 25, 50, 62 or 100 mile ride. 

"We have a lot of fun. We have a great after party. I think our rest stops have really good food. It's just a great ride. There is great scenery to Pelahatchie and up the trace. It's just beautiful," said Megan Spears, with the City of Ridgeland.

The after party was held at Reservoir Pointe.
