Got my first 50 miler yesterday, I have been riding for about 2 months, and love it, up till yesterday 32 miles was my max. Felt good to ride my age and get 50 in same day. I ran out of water on last 15 miles, considered jumping in a few ponds I passed.:) Finished at 13.9 mph, last 10 miles were pretty slow. Next up - Century ride.

That's a good speed for an LSD ride in this area. Are you planning an organized century in this area soon?

Watch the water thing during this August summer heat. If I or any of my friends run low on water we always pop into a gas station and fill the bottles at the bathroom sink.

Congrats on the milestone. :thumb:
As you prepare yourself for the century, you'll probably hit another milestone, the metric century, 62 miles.
