New Longest Ride

Started out to ride my usual 20-30 mile Sunday ride and befoe I knew it I had 40 miles in. I did it in only 2 stops(personal best). Maybe next time out I can get in a half century. Got a little tired the last 3 miles but overall a fun time.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

You've discovered the secret - it's easy to add on miles like that. Just forget you are supposed to stop. Great work!
