Well guys this may not be a big deal to some of you but I'm very proud. I finally made it past the 30 mile barrier. I felt very good throughout the ride although I live at the top of a hilll and I still can not make it all the way up without getting off the bike and walking for a short stint.
30.3 miles in 2:40:56
and that included a short stop at Lewis Country Store to buy a gatorade.
