Came home about an hour ago, after doing my toughest ride so far. At about 9 this morning I loaded up my rear panniers with water, food, some long sleeve/leg clothes, a thermarest and trangia+fuel. I had no idea if I was going to finish the ride or if I would have to call for a pickup somewhere en route, so I didn't post anything about trying since admittign failure is one of my biggest problems ;-)
Anyway, home now, the figures came out as 233.04km(144.8 miles) in 9:58:10 pedal time, a bit under 12 hours total time. I'm completely beat but very, very happy :-)
I'll upload some more photos an maybe elaborate the story a bit later if anyones interested, anyway here's what I looked like around halfway.
