Hey great job! I love it when the older guys double their age. Just can't get excited when the 20 y/o guys do it!

I tripled mine when I was 42, hope to quadruple it in 08 at age 44 by doing a few doubles!

Good ride man, but it seems you've got the worst luck with bees... If you need someone to host your images shoot them to me I'll throw them up on my server. jasonatskwarekdotcom is my e-mail address.

Excellent! That would have killed me, in the heat. And getting stung would have triggered migraines, too.
I second the vote for Photobucket, it's quite convenient.

Hope you have recuperated by now .

I felt pretty good after the ride even with the bee stings. I had two beers, and iced my left knee. I didn't even stretch (I know I should have). I went to bed about 9 pm and slept through the night. Got up the next morning for work, knee felt fine, I felt fine. Had a great day at work. that was one of the best rides I have ever had. Just wish the knee would have held up. I really wanted to finish the ride in less than 6 hours.

Angus, Twice my weight would be 506 miles

I do have to give credit to momof4greatkids. She was the one that inspired me to push myself to achieve that distance

Nice job! and nice average speed. I can't do that over 30 miles much less 100.
