Guys and Girls,
First let me thank all of the members of this Clydes / Athenas board for the excellent advice. I would not have been able to come as far as fast without all of you. I was a little panicked yesterday as the temps were dropping and I was not prepared. My feet were very cold today everything else was OK. I used a pair of running gloves over my half cycling gloves to keep the hands warm. Anyways here are my stats:
5hrs. 48.5 minutes total time
5hrs. 48.5 minutes time in the saddle (no stops)
ave 17.3 MPH
Ave HR 132 max 164
Calories burned 4368 (polar f6)
I am very happy with my ride it was beautiful with the trees changing colors and the clear crisp air of fall. I felt strong even at the end.
Again I can't thank you all enough for your wisdom and advice. Now I am going to throw some steaks on the grill and wash them down with a couple of Silver Bullets.
