Seeing how I hang out on here at C&V more than anywhere else, I thought that I would share with you guys and gals that today I did my first ever "Century Ride".
My local bike club does an annual event and I had done the "Metric Century" last year and decided to go for the full 100 miles this time. I did the first half of the ride as part of a group from my Monday night ride and the second half I did solo. The others in the group were doing the Metric Century.
I averaged a 4:16 per mile rate over the entire somewhat hilly and breezy course.
100 miles is a long way on a bike.
