    Great job on your first metric. I have always wanted to ride in NYC, but have not done it yet. How many riders? Did you have a police escort?

    Good job. If you can do a metric, you should be planning your century next.

    Was there ever a time near the end when you thought "Heck, 34 little old miles more and I can Americanize this thing?

    LOL

    In all honesty the last 10 miles really started to kill me... Anytime we hit a good stretch of road we where all pushing at around 20mph...but there where so many stop signs and turns that it constantly killed your momentum.

    What really did me in was a 15% grade hill that really took alot out of me after that it was alot harder to get upto speed.

    I def think I could do a Century but im gunna need to train some more and lose more weight.
