new long distance for me

yesterday me and the fiancee went for a bike ride yesterday, what started out as a morning stroll ended up being a 20 mile ride (a personal best) and considering we went for an 11 mile ride the evening before that makes 31 miles in a 24 hour period. This morning even after a long night of drinking I feel great.

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

You know, who don't have to drink that much, what ever happened to A cold beer when you get home, or A glass of wine with dinner, or even A shot for medicinal purposes, when your not feeling well. Why do people need to drink until they are hung over for over a full turn of the clock. Heck you missed a whole day where you could have gone riding, it's bad enough to lose days to bad weather, high winds, a brutal schedule, work, but to voluntarily lose a day to hooch, that's shameful.

Besides, do you know how many calories are in booze, look it up, you will be shocked

While it wasn't a distance record for him, I think KT rode more feet of elevation gain in yesterday's 25 miler than in all his years living in Florida.

I'll have ya anxiously awaiting the Chilly Hilly by February!

Maybe....but I did plenty of overpasses in FL.

What? It's a hill.

Congratulations on your distance record. Sounds like the cycling bug has bitten you too.

I remember when it bit me recently I accidentally did more miles than originally planned and I was so surprised. In my experience of catching the cycling disease, the next symptom of the bite will be a shopping spree for lycra and bike components. Watch out! Your wallet is about to lose weight fast!
